Free Online Education Sources Celebrating Open Education Week

As a parent who strives to cultivate curiosity in my child, I try to find teachable moments in every day life.  Sometimes it’s doing a quick math problem to figure out how many laps were going to be raced in Sunday’s NASCAR race (in the most recent race at Las Vegas, it was 267 1.5 mile laps to equal 400.5 miles) or maybe it’s having her figure out how much a cookie will be at her favorite fast food restaurant—after she added in tax!  (And ummm, is there an easy way to calculate sales tax on a partial dollar amount?)

I want her to wonder about everything!  Why is the sky blue?  Why is Mars red?  I want her to also be able to find out the answers for herself.  Experiment with Google.  Learn researching skills.  Know what is a reputable source and what isn’t.

Hug Your Tween Today

by Paula on December 14, 2012

Today my heart is breaking.  My thoughts are with the Newtown, Connecticut, community in the aftermath of today’s horrors.  I cried when I heard the news today…. as I’m sure many of you did.  I have worked at Ariel’s school for the last two days, helping with holiday crafts.  We completed them earlier today than  I had thought we would and I was able to start unexpectedly on another project.  I was deep in thought–and more than a bit worried about the new project–when the news came through.

And all I could think about was my sweet, precious girl.

All I wanted to do was to bolt to her classroom and hug her tightly.  Squeeeeeeze her so tightly.  Never let her go.  Ever.
