Whether winter brings our city severe storms, light dustings or just cold temperatures, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has some valuable tips on how to keep your children safe and warm.  Please visit healthychildren.org to learn more about winter safety tips from what to wear to safe activities for children.  There is also information on hypothermia and frostbite that every parent should be aware of before sending children outside to play.

Image of students sitting on flexible seating reading during center timeHas your child told you that they are sitting on bouncy balls in the classroom or have you noticed “controlled chaos” when you visit your child’s classroom?  This is due to the implementation of Action Based Learning within our school!  Studies have shown that even a single 20-minute bout of moderate exercise stimulates the brain and improves cognitive function in elementary school students.  Incorporating more movement in our classrooms has said to increase test scores and decrease behavioral issues.

“Our physical movements can directly influence our ability to learn, think and remember. Our physical movements call upon some of the same neurons used for reading, writing, and math.  Physically active people report an increase in their academic abilities, memory, retrieval, and cognitive abilities.  Certain kinds of exercise can produce chemical alterations that give us strong, healthier, and happier brains.  A better brain is equipped to think, remember and learn.” Dr. John Ratey, A User’s Guide to the Brain

Before you make these purchases, it is critical to remember to consider the safety and age range of the toys.

With i-Ready, we can sharpen our insight into each student’s personalized needs to help them strive for success!  You can find a direct link to enable your student to work at home on the left-hand side of the school site in the Additional Information Section labeled i-Ready Login or by visiting the  i-Ready Login Page.
