As a former Pre-Kindergarten teacher and now stay-at-home mommy of 2 boys and a sweet baby girl, many people ask me how they can be implementing educational concepts in the lives of their young children at home before they enter school. Instead of trying to come up with a quick list of ideas off the top of my head to answer these questions, I have decided to put all of my lessons into this blog. I, along with so many other parents, want to be purposeful at home with my children and make the most of the time I have with them.
I hope that this blog can help, encourage, and inspire you to work with your kiddos and
get involved in the learning process! The benefits will be endless,
and the moments you share together will be priceless! As Dr. Seuss once said,
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"

Totally Technical Tuesday: Heads Up

This is our favorite game to play right now!!!  Heads Up is a great app that you can download and play as a family!  All you have to do is pick a category and choose one person to guess.  That person holds the phone up to their forehead while the others give them clues to guess what the answer on the phone is.  Tilt the phone forward for a correct guess and tilt it backwards to pass.  There are multiple categories to choose from including "Just for Kids," "Animals Gone Wild," and "Food For Thought" that work really well with young kids.  My husband and I even play with each other with the other categories! 

Although this game was made just to have fun, it truly promotes learning!  Children have to read what is on the phone and use critical thinking skills to quickly think of ways to describe each answer.  It is so fun to hear the different ways my kids share clues and how they relate the answers to books we have read or things they have learned in school.  We love it and hope you will, too!
