Phacochoerus is a genus of Wild Pigs in the family Suidae, known as Warthogs. They are found in open and semi-open habitats, even in quite arid regions, in sub-Saharan Africa. They are largely herbivorous, but occasionally also eat small animals.

The Goat is a member of the family Bovidae and is closely related to the Sheep.
 
If you were to go through my phone, based off my pictures you would probably think I spend at least 90% of my life with goats. That’s not entirely inaccurate, and I’m absolutely ok with that. Goats are the best! It’s hard as Outback Keepers not to be smiling or laughing when you’re surrounded by such comical animals. I am lucky if I make it through a whole work day without breaking into a laughing fit that sends me to tears. I think I can safely speak for all of us when I say that we really enjoy spending time with them. We also really enjoy when the kid that comes into the petting zoo terrified is the one that leaves with a whole new excitement for animals. The goats will definitely do that to you. I mean, look at that face! Bella is my favorite out of the “Twilight” group (Nessie, Jacob, and Bella). Sorry, Michelle! #TakeoverTuesday – Danica Wolfe, Mammals Swing Keeper

The Red Junglefowl is thought to be ancestral to the domestic chicken, with some hybridization with the Grey Junglefowl. The red Junglefowl was first domesticated at least five thousand years ago in Asia, then taken around the world, and the domestic form is kept globally as a very productive food source of both meat and eggs.

EARLY EDUCATION NEWS
Why Math Is So Important for All Children

In recent years, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) has become a key focus in education. According to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics, more than 9 million STEM jobs will be created between 2012 and 2022, a compelling reason to prepare our students for careers in those fields. This leads to a bigger question: how to make children understand the relevance of math? The first step is to include - from the early years - mathematics in everyday life, as many parents have taken the good habit of doing with reading.

Here are 5 ideas about what to do at home to help children think numerically:

1. Playing games: All kinds of games can help children to improve their math, concentration and self-control skills.

2. Shopping: There are plenty of opportunities to do math at the supermarket.

3. Baking: Making cookies involves many mathematical operations.

4. Building things: Young people need to understand practically the relevance of math in matter of construction.

5. Finance: Daily practice with money helps children to grow into financially savvy adults.

About ChildUp
Since 2005, the ChildUp team of early childhood development experts and dedicated parents is providing information, methods and tools for parents who intend to raise successful and happy children. 


THE 5 KEYS OF THE CHILDUP EARLY LEARNING MODEL

The ChildUp Early Learning Model is based on decades of practical positive parenting experience in real life situations and families, backed up by 21st century international scientific research:

  1. Newborns Are Ready to Succeed at Anything
    Any human newborn in good health is ready to learn everything, and be successful and even excel at anything. The thousands of genes of the baby’s brain are like switches just waiting to be turned on (or not!) by experience and the environment. The first years are the most crucial years for the building of the brain which - with around 86 billion neurons eager to connect together - will never be so agile and flexible later in life.

  2. Talent Grows with Effort and Practice
    The idea that some lucky children may be “gifted” from birth is a pernicious myth. A focus on effort, rather on intelligence or ability, is much more encouraging. Children who think that talent and intelligence are not inborn, but made, get better results in any domain.

  3. Parents Are the First Role Models and Teachers of their Children
    A strong learning culture in the family and a patient and long-lasting involvement of the parents in the learning process are crucial for the optimal development of their children’s abilities. Parents have a heavy influence on the development, schooling, career and life of their offspring.

  4. The Goal Is to Be Fully School Ready
    Math and language are essential for the good development of children’s intellectual and social skills, what is a good reason to pay attention to it from day one. Well prepared (advanced) children starting kindergarten and elementary/primary school with solid foundations in math and language will keep this precious advantage for life.

  5. Games Are Great Early Learning Tools
    Indeed, academic learning is work that requires concentration, discipline, and perseverance. At the same time, in matters of early education, play is as important as work. Since children like playing, and since any game is educational, it’s a good strategy to use play and games as favorite early learning tools… and rewards.


MATH UNLOCKS YOUNG MINDS

According to Greg J. Duncan, Professor of Education at the University of California, Irvine, the better preschoolers are at learning math, the more likely they are to succeed academically. Early math skills are even more consistently predictive of later achievement than early reading skills.

If you want to advance your preschooler's chances of doing well academically, it's time to get out the board and card gamesMath learning is about being able to do things like count squares on a board and play board games - coupled with parenting, that builds math into everyday learning experiences.

THE SECRET TO RAISING SMART KIDS

By Carol S. Dweck
Professor of Psychology at Stanford University

Many people assume that superior intelligence or ability is a key to success. But more than three decades of research shows that an overemphasis on intellect or talent - and the implication that such traits are innate and fixed - leaves people vulnerable to failure, fearful of challenges and unmotivated to learn.

Teaching people to have a “growth mindset,” which encourages a focus on “process” rather than on intelligence or talent, produces high achievers in school and in life.
