GATE Together – We were excited to participate in the GATE Together workshops again this year. On Saturday, May 19th, we presented a workshop on the benefits and reasons for becoming a blogger. Most students walked in having a vague idea on blogging, but they walked out excited to start their own blog on topics ranging from animals, to video games, to music. There is nothing more rewarding than presenting a new and fun topic to intelligent students who are eager to learn. We really appreciate the Chino Valley Unified School District for inviting us to present again this year.
Macaroni Kids – We wanted to take this opportunity to share with our readers a wonderful website and blog called Macaroni Kid. If you are not familiar with Macaroni Kid, be sure to click on the link and check them out, they are a group of moms that provide their readers with information on kid-friendly family events and activities that are happening in our communities every week. They provide great opportunities for parents to take their kids to fun activities and spend quality time together as a family.

This month we wrote articles on the different types of intelligence, we looked at different learning styles, we took a closer look at the STAR test, we tackled the bullying problem, and we covered how to improve your child’s self-esteem in 3 different articles – learning to listen, teach your children about their culture and history, and remind them that you love them every day. We always strive to open communication between parents, tutors, students, teachers, counselors, and anyone else invested in children’s education, so please feel free to comment on our articles and share your opinions.
