Good Morning Tiger’s Den!

I am not sure if it is because it is Monday morning, or because it is a RAINY Monday morning and I am on my second cup of coffee, but I realized that in the last 2 weeks, I have had multiple conversations with parents about the important of sleep for our scholars.  Not just an early bedtime, but actual, quality sleep.  What surprises many is when I share that a child may display extreme hyperactivity and distraction (sounds like symptoms of something else…) purely based on not getting enough quality sleep.

Please read this wonderfully informative article!

Good Morning Tigers Den!

In my time working with children, whether in meeting with parents, teacher conferences, professional developments, etc.  I find, oftentimes, we work very hard to determine or try and uncover some major challenge or deficit, when in actuality a shift in structure and approach might be all that is necessary!

Trust me when I say, I have had the ‘palm-to-forehead’ moment too! You know what I am talking about…when you have exhausted all of your energy tackling something only to then realize the solution was far more simple than you ever imagined.

Here is a fabulous, simple, inclusive, list of 10 strategies that I have witnessed, first hand, promote school success and overall child-parent-teacher healthy bond(s) & satisfaction!

I hope you find it as useful as I do!!!
