If you like upbeat, family and educational videos, then I highly recommend checking out Curiosity Quest. The host Joel Greene takes viewers on ventures that stem from curiosity requests. Each video starts out with a viewer question and then the adventure begins. The shows are not scripted they are hands on.

As my son is getting older now I have been thinking about study skills and ways to teach him how to study. I have had the chance to review Victus Study Skills System. It is a system approach to studying. It doesn’t just teach an isolated area of study or individual components to master. It teaches a way of thinking. The way these things are taught you can use these skills through a whole lifetime.
I am currently working on a series of short vowels. My first packet to release today on currclick is Short A Word Work. I have it up for $3.00. It is filled with one syllable words that are perfect for a beginning reader. I also have sorted by word families. The word families in this packet are: at, an, ag, am, and ad.
The packet contains 26 pages total. The worksheets are read, write, trace, and color. There are also 3 simple word searches for the ages of 5 – 7.
Yesterday was World Autism Awareness Day – Light It Up Blue. It’s so near and dear to my heart that I had to start some traditions with the kids.
I started out in the morning by sharing some things on facebook. Then we had gotten ready for an outing. All of us at least had one piece of blue clothing on. We then headed out to the zoo with some friends. After the zoo we had stopped for lunch.
