4. Teach Basic Dictionary Skills
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:42:22
Solid dictionary skills are a great way to speed vocabulary acquisition, reading comprehension, and spelling accuracy. But dictionary drills are boring, right?

You've probably got a can of it in your bathroom, but did you know that shaving cream is a great arts and crafts medium for preschoolers and toddlers? Children love the cool, smooth feel of shaving cream, the malleability of it and the way it disappears through the fingers.

Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:38:23
Bunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery, James Howe's first book for children, is about a pet rabbit who just might be a vegetarian vampire.

10. Kapla, Keva, Citiblocs: Review and Comparison
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:51:31
About four years ago, my kids got a set of Kapla planks as a Christmas gift. There is exactly one size of Kapla block, 120 mm by 24 m by 8 mm (about 4 3/4 inches long). At first, a box of 200 identical blocks looked too simple to be much fun, but after getting addicted I realized that the simplic...

12. Mr. Nobody Poem Study
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:21:23
Kids love the anonymous poem, "Mr. Nobody." Humorous and gently instructive, the poem mimics the ways that children (and adults) excuse their bad behavior. I've successfully used "Mr. Nobody" for poetry study with students from six to eleven years of age. The poem has an iambic meter that is easy...
13. Good Night, Gorilla: A Teacher's Review
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:41:56
Good Night, Gorilla is, without a doubt, the most requested readaloud at my preschool. Besides "good night," there are only ten other words in the book, but that belies the richness of the conversations and the possibilities for learning that the book provides. Every time I read this with the chi...
14. Christian Book Series for Boys
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:27:10
Many boys aren't interested in books, especially books that challenge them more than Captain Underpants and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It doesn't help that most early childhood and elementary teachers are women, and that moms are usually more involved in their sons' education than dads are. (Don't get...
15. Wikki Stix: A Teacher's Review
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:42:05
I first heard of Wikki Stix a few years ago when I saw them listed in a teacher supply catalog.

Wikki Stix are inexpensive, reusable, easy to store, and they stick to just...
16. Father Abraham Song - A Teacher's Guide
Parenting & Kids - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:47:10
"Father Abraham" is a great song and dance for preschool and elementary school children.

17. Stop the Common Cold with a Hair Dryer
Parenting & Kids - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:25:40
There is no known cure for the common cold but some people swear that blowing warm air into the upper respiratory passages of the nose and mouth with a hair dryer can actually stop a cold or at least lighten the symptoms. It sounded a little fishy to me, but after learning that the rhinovirus doe...

19. Easy Sukiyaki Recipe
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:52:11
Whenever I visit my in-laws in Kyoto, one thing I always enjoy is making and eating sukiyaki. Some sukiyaki ingredients may be a bit hard to find outside of Japan but substituting is fine--every place you go in Japan seems to prepare sukiyaki differently anyway. Here is a basic recipe for sukiyak...
20. Bible Verses about Love

22. Ancient Times Newspaper
Culture & Society - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:51:54
Here's the news from ancient days as it may have appeared in an elementary school newspaper (if there were such a thing). TK (age ten) and RG (age 8) wrote these articles as part of their homeschool Bible and history studies.
Read about Assyrian battle technology and Nineveh's astonishing repent...
23. Your Toddler Needs an iPad
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:13:16
Could the iPad really be the perfect gift for toddlers? If the New York Times is to be believed, you can forget about the Rampway Play Set and the Munchkin Mozart Magic Cube.

Hobbies, Games & Toys - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:41:55
"The parenting bible" is how the Boston Globe describes How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk. As I read parenting books, and even taught parenting seminars, this book was the one that came up over and over in quotations and recommendations. I wish I had read it sooner becaus...

Parenting & Kids - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:47:10
Hiring executives are flooded these days with email job applications.

27. Keith Green: Christian Music Legend
Business & Work - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:52:16
My mom hung up the phone and broke into tears. She had just heard the news of Keith Green's death. I was only ten on that summer day in 1982, but the memory is still clear. It felt almost like a death in the family. We often listened to Keith Green's music and it has permeated deep into me. Even ...

Music - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:10:44
Are you a new parent, godparent, or grandparent looking for a good Baby Bible? There are so many out there, and buying a baby Bible isn't something we tend to think about every day.
