I’m sure you all had a weekend that was muy bueno (Spanish for “very good”), just like I did. Now this week, I have a big test coming up, so I am a bit stressed. I need to study, as I still don’t have my times table perfect yet. Do you kids know one of the best ways to study? Repetition. You have to keep practicing! Studying makes your brain stronger just like regular exercise makes your muscles stronger. Only doing one push-up is not going to do the trick and going through your multiplication problems once isn’t going to be the key to success either! You have to keep repeating them and going over them so I have found a great way to combine building muscle and brainpower. I have Hardy ask me problems as I exercise by doing jumping jacks, running in place, jumping rope and more! After this kind of studying, instead of feeling stressed, I am pumped up and ready to go. Bring on my test!
And while you’re on a study break, get today’s coloring sheet and activity sheet!
