mom’s homeroom: ideas, advice, videos, crazy-cool blogs
I am over the moon to share some exciting news: I’ve been working with MSN and Frosted Mini-Wheats for the last few months, writing as a Featured Blogger and doing some video pieces for Mom’s Homeroom!
Mom’s Homeroom is an online resource designed to help parents ‘empower their children to succeed in school’–something I feel very strongly about and that I’ve been trying to do over here at teach mama since the very beginning–so it’s a natural partnership, and I’m grateful to have been invited on board.
On Mom’s Homeroom, there are a boatload of videos featuring teachers, experts, and the panel of Mom’s Homeroom moms. There’s an extensive collection of articles, blogs, and printables, and there’s a message board where readers can share ideas and experiences with other moms. It’s a really cool site, rich with resources that anyone can pick up with whatever time they have, and the full-time hosts–the panel of moms–are four of the most kind, intelligent, amazingly talented women.
I know we’re all so busy, but if you get a second feel like grabbing a few cool ideas, here are a few I may suggest. . . (and of course I’m biased here–these are a few of my own, but it’s just been so. much. fun. I can’t help but share!)
Here’s the skinny on lil ole me on Mom’s Homeroom:
- Mom’s Homeroom Video: Encouraging Young Readers — The amazing Victoria (and production crew) came to our house (really!) to read with some super-cute kids and to chat with me about how best to encourage young readers. SO fun, and such an honor!
The Encouraging Young Readers video is on the Mom’s Homeroom site, but the slideshow from our taping day is below:
And here are some articles I’ve written:
- Extracurricular Sanity Savers — Keep your approach simple, focused, and fun!
- Games to Play With Just a Pen and Paper — These ideas are old-fashioned fun for waiting in line or passing the time.
- Learning on the Road — Use your commute time to unplug and sneak in some fun learning.
