Writing Tips for Young Writers

My Jenny wants to be a writer that’s what I discovered recently she has been reading a lot lately and I noticed her love for writing.
Besides reading a lot, writing a lot is the next important step to becoming a good writer! So I had to do my researching and here are some tips that I found that will help me help my Jenny to find her way and hopefully will be good help for you if you have a little one that wants to take this path:

– Let them Steal from your favorite writers.
imitation is the best way to incorporate good techniques into your writing. Later you’ll take these tools and make them your own, but at first you should feel free to mimic the best writers.

– Let them read about writing online. There’s a huge amount of information about writing on the Internet. Let them do some Google searches for writing blogs, writing tips, and the like.

– Make writing a daily habit. Whether they write in the morning before school, or during lunch, or after school, or just before they go to bed.

– Let them write what they know about. While it’s fun to use writing as a way to explore your imagination, the most realistic writing comes when you write about things they know.

– Let them write what their interested in or love doing.

– Try to not Let then get discouraged. If their not a good writer at first, don’t worry and explain to then that — no one ever is in the beginning. Good writing comes with practice, with experience, with time. Tell them to just keep doing it.

– Yes, grammar and spelling are important. These might seem like boring subjects to the kids . I know I wasn’t interested in grammar in school, and I’m paying for it now sometimes haha 😉

– Get them a special notebook. This isn’t necessary, but I’ve found that it helps. Teach them Keep notes about characters and stories they want to write about.

– Observe. Become an observer and listen to them, give them ideas and help them make points.

– Encourage them to the max.

– Show them how proud you are of them.

– Let them share what the write with close friends and family members.

Teens And Glasses

IMG_8875.JPG

My Jenny started compiling about headaches for the past few weeks every time I picked her up from school she would tell me that she has a headache! I always asked her if she ate at school and she always replied with a yes! I though it was from a long day at school and nothing serious!
A few days back she told me that she was having trouble seeing the board clearly at school! Right then and there I took her to check her eyes! And yes she needed glasses right away, it wasn’t that she was having trouble seeing everything! It was just trouble seeing the board and far objects so we went and got her prescription glasses and the Dr told us that she has to wear them at school and if she wanted to watch tv or at the movies.
Wearing glasses as an everyday must can be hard to start getting use to!
Something’s that Would help with this matter:

1- Talk to her about wearing glasses and how maybe some kids would teas her about it! But tell them cool people wear glasses all the time 😉

2- Make sure you get the right fit, your kids everyday glasses should be perfectly fitted and comfortable.

3- make sure you find the right Dr. To work with.

4- be patient, As with most big changes in a child’s life, getting used to new glasses will take time. It’s important that you remain optimistic and patient.

5- Get a Dr.’s report on your kids condition and pass by their school to inform them so your kid can set in front of the board to make it more easier to see.

Back To School Shopping

Back To School Shopping

It’s fun to hit the mall, but back-to-school shopping can be overwhelming. Between the high prices and confusing sizes, finding the perfect items isn’t easy!

– Shoes, shoes are very important make sure you buy the perfect cut and had to be super comfortable and your kids have to love it! I usually spend a little extra on shoes and don’t mind cuz the perfect shoes can last the whole school year!

– socks, you never can get enough of socks I usually get loads of them.

– white tees for the boys, I usually get 3 of those because the show stains very easily.

– Black leggings are a must with my Jenny we get 2 of those.

– Swept pants are a must with my Adam.

– backpacks I spend a little extra on them to get something good and well made so that in lasts longer.

– Extra small bag for school, if the kids have one then no need but if they don’t I find it a must! They may need it to carry extra stuff to school, snacks, PE clothes and other needs.

– Lunch box, my kids are old enough to get food from the cafeteria but no they take their food fresh made at home especially since Adam started his diet he has to take special kinda food.
Ps. Make sure you get containers for sandwiches and fresh snacks better, safer and healthier then plastic bags.

– Other school supplies I usually wait till the kids start school them get what they need, teachers give them certain items to get and notebooks.
In the past I used to get everything new! Stack up all over again on everything but no!! No need to do that!! I noticed that the kids have loads of school utensils! So make a list of what your kids really need and don’t by anything that you already have at home.

Wish all our beautiful lovely children a great school year ahead of them and parents good luck 😉

Msg’s From School

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with kids exams and homework! Especially when your kids forget sometime! Although I go through my kids books everyday sometimes I mess out on some things! And then I find out Jenny had a presentation and Adam had a quiz that they forgot to tell me about! Uuhh
Adams school has this service that I’m in love with you sign up for it and pay 1kd and you get all the updates by a MSG to your phone!!! How great is that! To bad Jenny’s school doesn’t offer it!

I seriously think that all schools should offer this service it’s very helpful.

Parent School Meeting

I’m very involved when it comes to my kids schools I always pass by to check on what’s going on and I never miss a parent meeting I’m always there to see what’s going on with my kids at school.
Sometimes to know what’s going on in class with your kids behavior, sometimes to catch up on homework and exams incase your kids forget or miss out and sometimes you go to point a concern. Well that’s why I go! But I have been going to school meetings for many years now and what I noticed is the parents always ask about their kids grades only!! That’s all I hear, what did you give her on her notebook? How much did she get on her exam? And so on like wise!! Parents should not ask about grades! You have your kids report cards! If you think that theirs a problem then do ask but if not why so into what your kids got on every single thing!!! Ask about behavior in class! Ask about how your kids get along with their classmates! Ask if your kid has any problems in class!
Parent meeting at school is not only about your kids grades!
