It's not surprising to see kids speak their mind, ask questions until convinced and have a say in everything that's happening around. We all agree technology rules the world today and kids being so smartly adapting to it is no wonder a boon in a true sense.

When I was in fourth grade, our house caught on fire. Happily, no one was hurt, but a great number of our possessions either had fire or smoke damage. My brother and I took off a few days from school as a result of our parents trying to figure out how to restore normality to our family.…Continue

DIY can be fun, but it is even more rewarding when your child can learn new concepts from it. I have a little one who is excited about learning, it is important to take advantage of his enthusiasm (and involve him a little in the DIY process).

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…Continue

The truth is that education as a notion has improved over the course of centuries drastically. We now understand the way learners’ brain works while in the process of learning, we understand the way in which it adopts new knowledge and we have an awareness of all the factors that influence that same process for better or for worse. Still, the modern educational system and all of its features are the way they are more because of necessity than any other practical reason. It is a known fact…Continue

Progress is inevitable. It is facts that today, most of us have phones with a greater capacity and capabilities than computers that sent the first man to the moon. Still, as in all things, it is not about what you have but how you use it that counts. Think of a typical teenage kid with a smartphone, it is true that that kid has an access to the internet, the most incredible data storage in the world, where he or she could find almost any information that they need, this is still probably not…Continue

It is said that children, long before they start walking and talking, have already inherited and developed the mathematical gene within them, passed down from previous generations to the next. We are all born with the ability to logically inter-connect things and math is just a tool which enables us to carry out such complex functions. To put it plain, at around three years of age, we all naturally start to understand the simple notion that if you have one apple and you add another – you…Continue

When I was little, I was one of those nerdy kids who really liked school. (Shocking, I know.) I loved my teachers, I liked to learn new things and I even played school on the weekends.…Continue

One day far into the future, when my son accepts his Nobel Prize in chemistry, I fully expect him to thank his Mom for doing all those "way cool" egg experiments with him on that one rainy Saturday afternoon. "Because of her," he will say, "I learned to look at the world as a place filled with answers. You just have to know the right questions to ask." And I will tear up, and it will be lovely. (Trust me.)…Continue

When learning how to read and spell, children respond best to hands-on strategies. What better way to practice sight words than to use materials that will engage the visual, tactile, kinesthetic, and auditory senses.
Here is a list of my students’ and my own boys’ favorite ways to practice sight words and spelling. Check out astutehoot.com for even more great learning ideas for parents and teachers!

In school, science was never my strong suit. I'd like to blame this on the nuns. (Can I do that?)
Things picked up for me in science when I finally got away from the life sciences and got to explore chemistry and astronomy. (Let's add fire! Let's talk about other planets!) It was great timing, because by 10th grade I was really, really tired of talking about cells and…Continue
