Review: “Who Was or Is …?” Book Series – The Inspirational Superpower of Real People

One challenge in a virtual school or home school scenario is having enough fun books that are truly a pleasure for a child to read while also being educational.

Our family filled this need with the Who Is or Was …? Series. It’s a fantastic biography series that has got us totally hooked. We are all reading them! Most of the books have a different author but each is well-edited to ensure a smooth read for 3rd-5th Grade reading level.

This series is real people telling their real and interesting stories. It doesn’t get better than that.

The Perfectly Poppins, Righteous, Slammin’, Totally Sick iD Tech Computer Camp

I walked in the door and knew I had landed in a perfectly poppins, righteous, slammin’, iD Tech computer camp.

The hardware was totally sick; Apples, laps and hard-core IBM’s float’en on the table, pumped with maximum RAM.

My peeps were in there banging keyboards and surfing software in the stratosphere.

I was stoked!

“Research Reasoning” Super Power — Brought to you by the letter “R”

No matter our personal education, religion, beliefs or creeds, we can probably all agree on this point:

With hordes of data and advertisements aimed at our children on a daily basis, CHILDREN MUST BE ABLE TO REASON (*to use logic to spot actual truth)

If they are to succeed in life, they have to know how to filter information – including yours. Steps to help teach them:

The Super Power of Words to Improve a Parent-Child Relationship

“Believe it or not, using one pronoun over another can actually
improve a parent-child relationship.

It appears then that a child’s social behavior hinges entirely upon the attitude shown to him by the people who are dominant in his life.

Using I over you is one such example. When Mom tells Joey, “I like it better when your bed is made in the morning,” he knows she is talking about herself.

But if Mom says, “You didn’t make your bed this morning,” Joey knows the finger is pointing directly at him.

“Quality” of You – a Telling Super Power

“By their works ye shall know them.”

This can be good or bad, but it’s a truth.

I gravitate towards people who are really good at what they do. What makes them really good is that they put their true selves into their work and it shows.

A long time ago I delved into the meaning of the word “quality” and I discovered something very interesting.

Musings of a New Delphian School Teacher Intern

In the Summer of 2011, I sought adventure. Little did I know how intense and exhilarating my summer adventure would turn out to be.

One philosophy that has always remained the same in my life:

“If you want to learn something new, seek out who has an excellent record of achieving the very thing you want to learn.”

After seeing the test results and college acceptance letters from a number of graduates of the prestigious Delphian School in Sheridan, Oregon, I felt this must be the right place. I applied and was accepted for a 7-week summer teaching internship.

Educator Tool Review – The Way to Happiness Kit

About 8 months ago, I requested an Educator Kit from The Way to Happiness Foundation International for use at school.

You can’t help but support a group with this sort of Mission Statement:

The mission of The Way to Happiness Foundation International is to reverse the moral decay of society by restoring trust and honesty the world over through the publication and widespread distribution of The Way to Happiness, a common sense guide to better living.

That mission is accomplished on a grass-roots level, worldwide, by individuals who share The Way to Happiness book with others and so bring about an increase in tolerance and understanding between families, friends, groups, communities, nations and Mankind—making a safer, less violent world for all.

It takes a Super Mom to Grow a Super Hero – Use These Talking Words

Believe it or not, using one pronoun over another can actually improve a parent-child relationship.

Using “I” over “you” is one such example.

When Mom tells Joey, “I like it better when your bed is made in the morning,” he knows she is talking about herself.

But if Mom says, “You didn’t make your bed this morning,” Joey knows the finger is pointing directly at him.

With this approach, you take responsibility for the situation; you put it under your control. You direct the child’s attention toward pleasing you – his parent or teacher – rather than on naughty behavior.

How to Defend Against a Super Villain – The Sexual Predator

I do not want to scare kids, I want them to be prepared; the Boy Scout motto with a twist: “Prepare For The Worst and Get The Least.”

Our world may seem civilized for the most part, but the veneer is thin and cracking. For you to achieve your goals as parents (Moral and Self-Reliant Children) then you must be willing to educate them even on the uncomfortable subjects you pray your kids never have to deal with.

As a parent, you are your child’s super hero. As unpleasant as this subject may be, please find the strength within to confront and teach yourself and your children how to deal with the Super Villain – the Sexual Predator.

A Super Computational Knowledge Search Engine for Super Heroes

Any Super Hero in training requires some form of super computer and knowledge base. However, each of our powers may vary person to person, and only a few of us thus far can tap into the “brains.”

We need not only a knowledge base, but also a computer that will do calculations and compare data for us less accessible minds.

Do you wish you had a search (but computable) engine specially designed alike for educators, parents, students, engineers, scientists, and economist? Not to mention the everyday any-age researcher simply curious about the world at large? Now there is!
