Hang in there!


Have you ever felt you were hanging on a limb and you did not know how you got there or how you will get off that limb? To get out of this situation, you have to calm down, breathe slowly, and backtrack. Your super power is to stay calm.  You do not have to answer all of life questions at this point such as why me?  The immediate goal is get off the limb.
1.  Tell yourself that everything is going to be okay.
2.  Breathe.
3.  Stay focused.
4.  Do not look down, around, look up.

Virtual Storytime

It can get a little boring to go to school virtually.  What a real treat to have an older child read to younger children.  This is a great opportunity to engage diverse age children in an after school activity that will give both ages an opportunity to read and entertain.  The goal is to find a book that will appeal to a young audience.  Use animation as the book is being read.  Do show pictures.  Allow the listeners to ask questions or to digest the material being read.

It's happening outside.

Be Healthy, Get Moving.
Grab the kids and take them outside.  Now is the time to get moving.  Run, jump, skate, dance, hike, swim, jog, walk, just do some physical activity. Drink plenty of water and take in the sun.  Make sure you use sunscreen lotion.  Make today a fun, healthy day.

Understanding Me Through Books



Children Books On Race & Inclusion

Why is Nita Upside Down? By Roxana Bouwer, Sarah Bouwer, Emma Hearne
Sometimes, we fear that others won’t accept us because of the things that make us unique – whether we look different to others, think differently, or have other interests. The reality is that everyone of us is different in some way, and that is our strength. This short picture book is a celebration of dark-skinned bodies of all kinds.

In Skin We Are In,

The Butler

The Butler comes out tomorrow.  Please go to the movie to see this awesome movie.  Reviews appears to be very good.  Lee Daniels and this star power cast is what we have been waiting for:  talent, substance, and entertaining.  Going to the movie on the first day is important.  The media always spot light the top movies.  Get with your friends and have a great TGIF night at the movies.
