Tackle Reading by Kathryn Starke

Tackle Reading by Kathryn Starke Another Back to School Helpful

Reading is so beneficial, yet many kids struggle with their reading.  Without a basis of reading, kids will falter in so many other subjects.  Math requires reading, especially when you have to do word problems, so all subjects require that your child can read.

Kathryn Starke’s book Tackle Reading is great! Tackle Reading is a resource that will motivate children, support parents, and inspire teachers and fellow educators to love literacy. This book contains stories written by NFL players, celebrities, and authors who are passionate about reading education. I love how this book incorporates people that adults and children can relate to, and not stuffy reading. (reading that will bore your child or even yourself)

It also includes pieces, lesson plans, activities, and guidance provided by literacy leaders, educators, and organizations dedicated to improving literacy instruction for all children.

The Foolproof Blueprint for High School Success: The Four Year Plan by Neha Gupta

The Foolproof Blueprint for High School Success: The 4 Year Plan by Neha Gupta

Where was this book when my daughter started high school?  Granted she did get accepted into the college she wanted to go to.  She is now just starting her Senior year at SUNY Purchase majoring in Psychology, but this book would have been so helpful.

Sadly I was under the assumption that looking into colleges starts in your Junior year of high school, but really you aren’t helping your child if you do not have a ‘plan’.  I wasn’t prepared when my second child decided to go to college as he was my first to go since my oldest went into the Marine Corp.  I found reading this book that it is better to prepare ahead of time so you are not racing to get in under the clock.

You will enjoy reading what Neha has to offer with her insight and blueprint of how to do this as you go and not all at the last minute.

“I wrote The 4 Year Plan with over 20 valedictorians by my side. Every single chapter gives insight into what students need to do in each month of their high school career in order to succeed. This book speaks to teens directly, and helps them to navigate the noisy, stressful high school experience and have an action plan, strategy, and vision for their dreams.” – Neha Gupta

Easy to read and available on Kindle on Amazon. (affiliate link).  If you purchase a copy I will receive a small commission from your purchase.
Perfect for the parent/child looking forward to what comes after high school and allowing you to be a head of the game. Wonderful tips, information, for your teen to start their journey to their goal of attending the college of their choice.

Teens are so busy during high school that sometimes they feel they can wait til “later” to figure it all out.  This book will guide their way and help them on their journey for after their high school career.

PhoneSoap 2.0 The New Way to Clean Your Cell Phone

I love PhoneSoap 2.0!

Epic! It is Where ALL the Books Live!

Epic! It is Where ALL the Books Live! The Largest Digital Library for 12 and Under

Epic! is where the reading awaits you and your child.

Reading has always been a favorite of mine.  When I was younger a trip to the library was one of my favorite things to do.  Sometimes I would get the same book I had read already but if it was a favorite I enjoyed it just as much the second time as I did the first.  When I got older if I found an author that I really liked I would buy all of the books I could from that author so I could just keep on reading.  When I became a parent and from very young ages I started reading to my kids before they went to sleep.  At one point bedtime took me forever [Read More…]

The Inflatable, Deflatable, Portable and Packable Car Booster Seat from Bubble Bum

If you have a child that needs a booster seat, you know how inconvenient it can be to have a friend or family member pick up your child. You have to either make the booster seat exchange or send the seat with your child. If your child is getting picked up from school, then the booster seat is left out in the hallway or by the car line. This can be frustrating and inconvenient for all parties involved.  [Read More…]
