MSN Homeroom

My fellow teachers are returning to school and their classes once again tomorrow. I found myself thinking about what my top tip to students and parents would be. I remembered how back in my own teaching days, all thirty-five years of them, boys and girls who regularly ate breakfast did far better in school scholastically than the students who didn’t did. So, my own personal advice: Insist your child to eat/drink something healthy and nutritious every day before they leave the house.

Mom Central let me know about a terrific website – the MSN Homeroom. Its information was pertinent, professional, and on target.

I especially enjoyed the section on challenging advanced writers. It may just be common sense, but how many of us really guide our own children when we can? Helping our kids practice handwriting with the right tools in the right way sets the stage. Reading and writing daily lights it up. Looking at the overall picture serves as the scenery. Taking the complex writing process and doing it with copy work, making books, and creative writing provides the script. Developing oral language and use of detail rehearses the show. Then the show is on…and, I bet, a great long running one.

There is so much more–material for every age level, grade, and subject. Check it out. You will find it helpful. You will also find other parents experiencing the same things you do.

  1. It is amazing how many children try to write without holding the pencil correctly. I guess they were never shown the correct way! I am glad this site offers great information!

  2. Thanks for posting this link. I got some great ideas from the video to help my 3.5 yr old learn to write her letters.
