Back to School Party with Fundanoodle!

MAX AND ALPHIE_HOLDING HANDS

Fundanoodle writing tablets and multi-activity kits create a fun, relaxed learning environment. Short, interesting activities and fun characters Max & Alphie keep kids focused and engaged. They’ll have so much fun, they won’t realize how much they’re learning.

Although Fundanoodle is designed for parents, early childhood educators can use the program to supplement classroom instruction.

Fundanoodle gives parents access to affordable, easy-to-use early learning systems that can be used at home. The Fundanoodle modules not only offer self-directed learning opportunities, but they also allow parents and children to spend quality time together.

This weekend, the savings and the giveaway are HUGE! Go to my Fundanoodle Facebook Page and join the party!

Good Advice from ‘Mom’s Journey’


Good Advice from ‘Mom’s Journey’

Mom’s Journey: Practical Tips for Raising Kids is a straightforward and honest approach from the author, Limor Friedman, whose experience with motherhood spans more than 18 years. She doesn’t use any psychological babble or scientific research you find in most parenting books. She simply speaks from experience and offers help to those who are in search of it. She doesn’t claim to be right or wrong. She allows the reader to use her take on anything from homework to bullying and then draw their own conclusion within their unique situation.

Thank you to Tomoson and Ebookpro for my complimentary copy in exchange for this review.

I’m a Natural in My World

dancing

What are you a “natural” at doing?  I am a natural at dancing. Been doing it since the age of three. Do it all the time. Can’t help it.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?  I prefer a one floor house. I’ve lived in both and I definitely prefer a nice one floor house, nice and spread out. Stairs are overrated!

What was your favorite subject in school?  My favorite subject in school was English. And I still enjoy writing, proofreading, editing, and reading.

Complete this sentence: If only the rain..  would fall when needed and cease when not.

fundanoodleIt’s been a while since I mentioned Fundanoodle, but you will be seeing a lot more of it since it is taking the educational world by storm! Currently a Junior Ambassador, well on my way to full Ambassador status, I am working hard to introduce this product to teachers, parents, grandparents, caregivers, and therapists.

Each Friday, I will highlight one product, beginning with our most popular and best-selling product, I CAN POUND! Here are some of my little friends enjoying their I Can Pound Kit. Visit my Fundanoodle site and look forward to next Friday’s highlighted product. And while you’re there, say hello to our mascots, Max and Alfie!

The Best Laid Plans…

‘The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.’

No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it. The saying is adapted from a line in “To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns : “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.”   Dictionary.com

 


Well, we had to scrap our camping trip. It has been raining up in these parts for days on end. The satellite shows a hug band of rain headed for West Jefferson, NC. The rain will start this afternoon and continue until tomorrow. Not the ideal camping weather. I don’t mind being cold, but I do mind being wet.

Big fat bummer.

But I had a great time yesterday visiting my old school. I spent two hours just wandering the halls, talking to colleagues, and being introduced to the students as “the very first dance teacher” at the school. I felt like a bit of a celebrity. I’ve been gone for 9 years, so of course, all the students I knew have been gone for a few years.

It felt nostalgic and sad, but inspiring at the same time. The school is still vibrant with color and sound. The students and staff seem happy. It’s just as I remembered.
