12 Unexpected Units Of Measurement To Teach Your Kids

How can you make science education more fun? Well, how about introducing some of the weird and wacky units of measurement that tend to be excluded from regular science lessons?

There’s not an ounce of fun in a centimeter, while miles-per-hour can induce a gallon of yawns. But across humankind’s long history of measuring stuff, we’ve come up with a few funnier ways to count, tot-up and otherwise quantify the world around us.

You can catch your kid’s attention with the ‘Mickey’,…

How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Can Impact Children's Learning

Education, and the way teachers interact with their pupils, is constantly in a state of flux as institutions look to implement new technologies, research and policies into their own practices. 

Take the computer as a prominent example. As computing power became more proficient and affordable, many schools and universities looked to integrate the new technology into the classrooms, offering students and teachers a new way of accessing and interacting with the curriculum. 

Today,…

Thinking in future terms

My son is seven. He has long legs and has developed strong arms from swimming. He has soft, floppy, light brown hair and dark brown eyes. There is a smattering of freckles under his eyes and across his nose from spending summer outside. He laughs easily and often.…

Five Characteristics of High-Quality Preschool

When my son turned two-and-half, I started looking at preschools. I had a great experience in preschool, which I credit with igniting my love of learning, so naturally, I wanted to share that love with my son. I thought, I had found the perfect preschool. The school was…

Creative Writing for Children as an Effective Instrument for Using Their Imagination

In today’s world creativity is an incredibly important skill. That’s not just because we need more artist (though we do) it’s also because even non-artistic pursuits can benefit a huge amount from having a more creative understanding of the world. This is because creativity isn’t just art, it is also problem solving and re-evaluating situations to realize there is a problem in the first place.

For that reason, any attempt to boost our children’s creativity should be applauded.…

Lessons from Shadow: My Life Lessons for Boys and Girls by Shadow Bregman

What a wonderful book for children. Not only is it cleverly written by a worldly black Labrador called Shadow, of course kindly penned by his human daddy Walter Bregman, but it contains some important life lessons for children to learn, and other dogs of course as long as…

The know-it-all in our household

I have made two key points very clear to my son over the past year:

  1. Mommy is not an octopus.
  2. Mommy does not know everything.

The first concept is an acknowledgement that I can't do everything at once, so if he sees me…

Becoming the teacher's pet (when you are a parent)

Right before Valentine's Day, I received several brightly colored pieces of paper letting me know that parents were invited into the classroom to secretly decorate their child's desk for February 14.…

She's growing up too fast

I can still remember the day the nuns and teachers separated the girls and the boys in seventh grade to cover sex education. In retrospect, it was probably worse for the boys, since the monsignor was brought into the school to talk to them. We girls at least had the female science teacher in addition to the nuns.…

At University with a Baby

When I was about two weeks into my pregnancy with Bobby, I was made redundant from a job that I had been in for nearly three years. Believing (perhaps wrongly) that I wouldn't be able to get another job in my current condition, I didn't look for anything else, deciding instead to look…

Why you should seriously consider taking online classes

Why shouldn’t more people take online classes? Young mothers do not have a lot of time on their hands, but they do get snippets of time during the day when they are at a loose end. They may watch TV or try to steal a little time with a lover, but instead they could take online classes and cement a better future for themselves and their children.

 It…

Fun and safe online places for kids

Kids are starting to use laptops, tablets, and smartphones on a daily basis. Even before they know how to read or write, kids know how to play the video games. However, not all of the online games are safe and a good place for them to develop. If your child is spending time playing some of these ten games, you have nothing to worry about.…

A Case for Sex Education


(previously posted on www.themamasutra.net/blogs)

There is a very vocal minority who believes that sexual education for children and teens should be nonexistent, that somehow keeping a child ignorant is "protecting his or her innocence." I firmly disagree with this. Scratch that; make that strongly, emphatically, vehemently disagree.

That belief ignores a very…

How are babies made?

We were eating dinner in a Chinese restaurant when my son asked me how babies were made. I swallowed my mouthful of sweet-and-sour chicken and answered him with an age-appropriate summary of how sperm and an egg join together and then grown inside a woman's womb to make a baby.…

Cover Reveal !

I am elated to reveal the cover of my soon to be published book.  This book chronicles the hurdles I had to endure to finally achieve success as a French and Spanish teacher. I hope my story will inspire all future educators from across the globe.

I believe in order to make a change for the better in public education, school districts across the United States should make a concerted effort to hire more educators of color.   I wrote “Saying Yes To My Life’s Calling: Breakthroughs in…

What's better: The ACT or SAT?

Think back to a memorable Saturday morning: You wake up early, somewhat refreshed from a dodgy night's sleep. You eat a decent breakfast, despite the fact that your stomach is roiling, and then you head off to school to take your SATs. Because there is nothing better than to spend four hours of your Saturday taking a test that you believe will decide your entire future.…

Back to School Organization

Back to #School #Organization from @MomTattles #B2S #DIY Monday morning, my Facebook feed was filled with proud parents as their children started their first day of school. By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…
