During the school year friendships are easy to develop and maintain as kids are around each other on a daily basis. However, in the summertime, it is more of a challenge to stay connected with everyone because schedules are busy. Summertime friends are important for kids to continue to develop socially as well as just the typical benefits that come from strong friendships.

Learning the lingo and rules in sports can be fun, but also challenging! It may come more natural to adults, but certainly can be confusing for a kid to learn and remember everything that goes along with each different sport out there.

Do you ever wish that your kids would listen better? This is probably a silly question. We all know kids struggle to listen at times, but it is essential that they learn the importance of respect and listening to both kids and adults. I experienced a situation at school that I would love to tell your kids about. Had I been listening, I could have saved myself some embarrassment. Make sure to download the coloring and activity sheets for today to help them learn a vital listening lesson (oh and maybe some math, too)!
Can you feel it? Spring is just around the corner! That means roses are red, violets are blue, the trees are green, and the weather is too good to be true! I love spring. Taking walks through the park with my family is one of my favorite things to do. Seeing families hanging out together, kids being active, and the beauty of nature makes me feel so happy. I encourage all of you to get outside and enjoy the great weather. I know for some it is still a little chilly, but once spring finally arrives where you live, get outside and have fun! Until then, you can download the coloring sheet and activity sheet for today!
This weekend, I already had a lot of homework to do. I was so surprised that we’d already have so much, as we’ve only been back at school for a week. I thought I had gotten everything done, but then last night, I realized I had to read a chapter of my book and write about what I read. I started to get really upset because I thought I had finished everything! But instead of getting upset, I took three deep breaths to calm myself down, and then I got to work. Let me tell you, the work was much easier to do without all the anger. So next time you start to feel stressed out over schoolwork, just take a minute to breathe because you have the choice to be upset and make things worse, or calm down and get it done. Either way, it has to get done, so you might as well be in a good mood while doing it! If you need a schoolwork break, you can download the coloring sheet for today.
