As parents we all want the best for our children and one way we can help our children succeed is to teach them to read and encourage them to read. Reading is a skill that they will use for a lifetime and being a strong and avid reader opens up information, knowledge, history and worlds like no other. Here are several ways to encourage your child to read and have fun learning.
I have 3 boys. 2 of them are in elementary school. I am a member of the PTA and a chairperson for our school. I have lots of teacher appreciate ideas I will post this week but here are a few notes and drawings my son gave to his teacher I thought you might like.
Many of us are about to send our kids to preschool or school in the next few weeks. The tone has changed from Summertime activities to talk of back to school.
Most preschool and Kindergarten kids are learning to read or are about to begin reading. One way to encourage children to start reading or become more confident with reading is to provide them with age appropriate books they can read easily.

I am always trying to fit in more fruits and vegetables to my kids diet. In their lunches I often put the fruit cups that do not have added sugar or apple sauce cups (the natural ones without corn syrup or sugar or anything else added). But when we are in the car or at a Soccer game I often find the fruit cups difficult to bring. We usually stick to bananas and apples but sometimes we run out of fresh fruit or my oldest son does not eat apples.
Springtime has finally arrived and this Sunday is we officially move our clocks forward to Daylight savings time. I am thrilled that our long rainy winter has come to an end. My daughter has been wearing her beloved cowboy boots to preschool every day. With our warmer weather I've been searching for some springtime shoes for her to wear with sundresses and skirts. She is at a stage where she will only wear skirts or dresses, so I am hoping to entice the cowboy boots off with some pretty springtime flats!
I'm lucky enough to receive hand-me-downs from a friend, many of which are from Mini Boden. I am huge fan of Boden, the UK fashion brand and their Mini Boden line for kids. The girls' clothing and accessories, including shoes are classic styles with a colorful twist. The clothes are well made, durable and look adorable on. I've picked four spring shoe styles from Mini Boden that I've got my eye on.
I had an opportunity to try the Veggie Patch Veggie Bites this past week. My family tried the Brocolli Bites, Spinach Bites, Sweet Corn Bites, and Portabella Bites. I was interested in trying the Veggie Patch bites because they are vegetarian, do not contact Trans Fats or MSG.
