Back to School

imagesBack to school is here! Books, uniforms, bags, shoes and so much more… Mumz how are the preparations going?

It takes a lot of preparation at the beginning of the school year. For parents whose children will be joining school for the first time; it is going to be a real challenging period. Begin to talk to your child about school and how much fun it would be. Show pictures and videos of children engaged in activities at school. Take your child to the new premises so that he/she may get acquainted with the environment. But most of all prepare yourself to tackle the morning drop off time and the new routine.

I hope it would be a great start for all Mumz and kiddos.

Time For Homework…

Do you get worried when its time for your kid’s homework?!

Homework seems to take up a lot of family time esp. keeps the mum on her toes. I am sure all of you must have derived some sort of homework tacking strategies. Here are some simple rules.

  • Set up a schedule that will allow the child little breaks, and still get the work done. 
  • Specify a place for your kid to do homework on a daily basis. This will help him/her to realize what is expected of them. Guide them to organize their work place too for smooth study time.
  • A good idea is to have the computer near the homework station, in case needed for research work. 
  • Place a dictionary, atlas, thesaurus and other reference books in that area too.
  • Organize pens, pencils, paper and other supplies so that time is not wasted in hunting for those items all around the house.
  • Appreciate when the child is showing interest and working towards finishing the task.
  • Some children need a push. Talk and explain why homework is important and how a good attitude can do wonders in completing work. Motivation is the key but it will take a lot of time and effort to get the ‘work avoiders’ to get serious. Don’t lose hope, keep trying!
  • Once work is completed, it should all be placed back in folders and backpacks. This will help avoid the trouble faced when projects are forgotten at home. 
  • Backpacks must be placed at easy access points in the house preferably close to the main door so that they are picked up quickly the next morning.

HAPPY HOMEWORKING! as my 3 year old says when he sees his older brother at the desk. 🙂

Playscapes Wall Murals- Decorate your Kids Rooms, Ideal for Nursery

 Playscapes Wall Murals are such an exciting concept in kids rooms decorating and nursery decor! We handcraft and hand paint all the childrens’ wall art and kids’ room accessories, add Velcro pads to the back and then package our wall mural kits and freight them worldwide direct to your door!

 The Jungle theme was the first design created by Playscapes and remains the favorite to this day! Brightly coloured Jungle animals with friendly faces will adorn your childs playroom or bedroom. The gorgeous little African Rondarvel will make decorating your childs bedroom your greatest thrill.  

All you do is paint the wall in your chosen colour, plan your design then simply peel away the backing tape on the murals and adhere. In a couple of hours you will have the most gorgeous room that you did yourself! Another bonus is it is also interactive. Children are encouraged to pick the apples off the tree, fly the bees around and place them back. This improves their hand-eye coordination and fine dexterity. Another bonus is of course if you find you have to relocate, simply take your Playscapes kids’ murals ( or wall art) with you and remove the Velcro without marking the walls!

When ordering at Playscapes, please mention that you heard about Playscapes from Creative Mumz.

           Seaside Teddies theme is a warm favorite with old-fashioned Teddies and sailing boats. It is perfect decorating for the nursery and we have adorable nursery furniture to match. Childrens stools, garden seats and other hand-painted furniture are available for nursery decorating. The Seaside theme is perfect for Nursery design as it is designed for boys and girls. This childrens wall mural will be loved for years to come.   

Back To School

www.creativemumz.com

It is time to begin school very soon. Back to school means preparation for both, mums and kids. Mothers need to sort out things, organize and plan ahead of time to pack interesting lunch boxes, buy books and uniforms, find new ideas to get the kids to finish homework and much more.

The key is organizing. Here are some ideas to prepare beforehand;

  1. Prepare lunch bag cards for the week. You can make cards to go on the fridge with what has to be packed for each day of the week. This will save time and reduce daily stress of thinking what to prepare.
  2. Kids have a fluctuating routine during summer break. Start put them to bed earlier at least one week before school starts. This will help them to get into school routine easily.
  3. Prepare lists for what has to be sent to school esp. on the first day, like books, school supplies, lunch bag, any special item that the school had requested for. A separate list should be prepared for each child keeping in mind that a primary school student will have to carry different things as compared to your little one who is just beginning school.
  4. Find new and interesting ideas to motivate children to finish homework without a fuss. Surf the net and read some articles that will help and prepare you to deal with homework issues.
  5. Mark important school events and meetings on a calendar to avoid missing any special days.
  6. Reduce morning stress by preparing clothes and lunch bags at night. Set plates, spoons, cups, etc. for breakfast at night to avoid rush in the morning.

 Planning ahead will make going back to school a pleasant experience!

WHAT TEACHERS MAKE?

www.creativemumz.com 

WHAT TEACHERS MAKE…….

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued,
“What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in
life was to become a teacher?” He reminded the other dinner guests what
they say about teachers: “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.”

To stress his point he said to another guest; “You’re a teacher, Bonnie.
Be honest. What do you make?”

Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, “You
want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, and then began…)

“Well lets see, for starters, I make kids work harder than they ever thought
they could. I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honour.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents
can’t make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental…

(She paused again then went on)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them criticize.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them to write and then I make them write.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know
in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were
given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.

(Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)
“Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, I can hold my head up
high and pay no attention because they are ignorant… Do you want to
know what I make?

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
What do you make?”

THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY TEACHER YOU KNOW.
THERE IS MUCH TRUTH IN THIS STATEMENT:

“Teachers make every other profession”.

This was worth sharing!
