working mom of 4 kids, I need everyone to chip in to keep the household running smoothly... Luckily, I've finally come across a great online Chore Chart that lets me do just that! MyJobChart makes it fun for my kids to complete their tasks because the customizable chart tracks their progress and awards points for completed tasks. I'm happy because my kids are learning a strong work ethic and the value of a dollar, and the kids are thrilled to be rewarded for a job well done!
Ava is having a great time with her electronic animal sounds game. When the computerized voice hee-haws, the two-year-old cries out, “dun-kee!” and presses the donkey picture on the touch pad. This gizmo also has games for identifying colours, number and shapes. Ava now knows two dozen animals and 30 colours, including obscure ones like magenta. Three-year-old Tyler and his dad are “camping” in the spare bedroom.
Foster a love of gardening in your children and teach them where food comes from -- they might even start eating their greens! When you plant your garden, try to make a space where your child is free to experiment and grow things. From an early age, children can be involved in the cycle of the year, from planting seeds indoors or in a cold frame in the early spring and transplanting the seedlings to the garden when the danger of frost is past, to tending the garden and watching the fruits and vegetables grow, all the way to harvest. For young children, there is something marvellous about going out to the garden and bringing in a basket of lettuce, scallions and tomatoes that they helped to grow -- getting children to eat vegetables is rarely a problem when they have grown, picked and washed them themselves. Don't forget to include fragrant herbs in your garden. The aroma of fresh basil, fennel and sage should be part of your child's memories of childhood.
I've always loved this time of year. When paper and pencils and binders and backpacks grace the shelves of almost every major store in town. I've always loved the new school supply smell, that combination of plastic and rubber and lead.

I made these pattern block mats using Photoshop. Each mat comes in color and blackline, depending on your preference. The blackline mats offer more of a challenge as children figure out which shape goes in the space. Pattern blocks teach children about shapes and geometry, as well as develop their visual discrimination skills. Click on the thumbnails to download and print the mats.

Elimination Section I was given a copy of this book that was published in 1976 by the same authors and there was a section about potty training and laying down newspaper for you child to go on. Hmm..Can you really value an author's opinion when they suggest placing your son in the bathroom pantless and teling him to have a movement on the newspaper in the hopes that eventually he will progres to using his own potty, and then the toilet.
