Last week I linked to an article stating that Kindergarten has become the New First Grade. This week I read about a study claiming Nearly One Million Children in the US are Potentially Misdiagnosed with ADHD and couldn’t help but wonder about the connection between the two. Don’t be surprised to see a full post on this later!
Read this brilliant response to the question of whether or not babies should be taught how to read.
As I was perusing activity posts my son bolted across the room to check out these felt car mats (there are some great links to more within the post). I particularly like this idea for connecting the mini mats to mix and match for a variety of big mats to play on! (Oh and you have to check out the gas pumps using shoe laces — Brilliant!) I’m thinking of having my boys each design a few and then linking them together.
This link may seem to stray a bit from my focus of supporting whole child development, but a happy child comes from a happy home, and this is one of the best posts on marriage I’ve ever read: We All Married the Wrong Person.
Enjoy the Weekend!
