We're loving the warmer spring weather! If you're looking for activities for toddlers and preschoolers, here are 10 of my favorites from +PBS Parents and +PBS KIDS! #STEM   #learning   #education   #kids   #outdoors  
Even though it seemed that winter might never end on the East Coast, we're finally glad to be shedding layers to enjoy the feeling of sun on our faces. This was a beautiful weekend to be outside and we treasured every minute of the daylight hours we spent in our backyard.

Have you ever reinvented yourself whether on purpose or by chance? I know I have many times because life is full of changes. Change can be hard when it’s human nature to be creatures of habit. Whether or not reinvention is intentional, it’s often easier if you’re resilient. Here are 18 movies and shows available through +Netflix available for streaming. #StreamTeam

This 40 minute virtual field trip will help 3-8th graders better understand how geography, people, and water interact in two of America’s “wildly” unique biomesby teaching concepts like how water affects people and how people affect water, where water comes from, and

Middle school presents enough challenges to cause any student a bit of anxiety but we’re loving Public School Superhero that’s a perfect read for any tween. #publicschoolsuperhero   #jamespatterson   #books   #tweens    #middleschool   #giveaway  
With a 5th grader in the house, middle school is on our minds. It's comforting to know that Emily will be going to our neighborhood middle school with many of the same friends she's attended school with for the past six years but there are certainly going to be new challenges for her ahead such ...

Yesterday I posed this question to my Facebook friends who were quick to jump in and share their kids’ favorite shows. Using their recommendations, here are the top shows that are most popular among my friends’ tweens. +Netflix  #StreamTeam  
Gone are the days of sitting down and tuning in to watch your favorite shows live. These days savvy viewers watch their shows when they want and our kids are even getting into the act by streaming favorite content on Netflix. With the ability to set up separate profiles in your Netflix account ...

Hi +Sarah De Diego! It's nice to meet you and thanks for taking notes! I'm sure there will be lots more content on Netflix for tweens too by the time your kids are that age! Always a great selection of shows for all ages!

"...it is in those experiences where you allow yourself to believe that everything is possible that the magic really happens." I love the last line of this post on Live Do Grow by +Elena Sonnino about the power of wellness travel but this applies to so many more areas of our lives too! A must-read! #travel   #wellness   #wellnesstravel   #transformation  
I went for the hiking, fitness and spa. But after a session in the art studio, I experienced personal transformation at Rancho La Puerta wellness retreat.

Have your kids ever dreamed up an app or mid-game wished that there was a different feature? Coding can be the tool that helps solve a problem or meets a need. It serves as a way to explore a real world problem in an interdisciplinary way, involving other academic areas as well as creative problem solving. Isn’t it exciting to think about our kids being the ones who will be creating the technology of the future? Here are 7 free resources that can help kids learn to code including ones like +Microsoft Virtual Academy and +youthSpark  #STEM   #coding   #kids   #learning   #parenting   #education  
This post was written as part of a compensated partnership with Microsoft. Over the weekend I sat down, flipped through The Washington Post, and was immediately drawn to a piece in the Opinion section titled “Why America's obsession with STEM education is dangerous.” Obsession? Dangerous? STEM?

Taking to Emily to Haiti was so much more than a trip. Being there as more than tourists was an immersive learning experience that was my way of investing in her as a global citizen. #Bloggers4Haiti   #travel   #education   #kids  
I've spent a lot of time reflecting about our trip to Haiti since while editing countless photos documenting our journey. As a veteran traveler to Haiti, this trip was very different for me because I brought my 11 year old daughter, Emily, along. To have the chance to see the country through ...
