Activities For Your Kids

Last week, I wrote about how I was going bananas, with being the at-home teacher, for e-learning with Finn.

Finn’s teachers have provided weeks worth of material, and each day, he has a series of different math, reading, and spelling courses, along with other topics.

One of the activities required him to use an app on the tablet and answer math equations while being timed. If he doesn’t answer the equation within a specific time limit, he gets the answer wrong.

That particular program wasn’t responding, kept freezing, and logging him off. Then he would have to log back in and would need to start over. This happened to him a couple of times and he became frustrated and cried.

That was one of the experiences that I had during my first week of e-learning with Finn.

The day that I posted the blog about e-learning, several of my patients, that are teachers, emailed me and provided additional learning activities that I could do with Finn.

They all let me know that I could contact them, if I had any questions. This was so wonderful.

I love our awesome community and was amazed at all the effort these folks went through, to share some ideas with me. It took a lot of effort and I wanted to share, how they volunteered, to provide activities and help:

-Virtual field trips!

-“Brain Break” activities. Try to work for about 20-25 minutes at a time and give your kid some breaks in between. A great site to use, is You can use the “family” site. Also there is a cute dice game.

-Brookfield Zoo has some cool stuff too, right now on their site. Many zoos have live cams for their animals.

-Cincinnati Zoo live streams (and makes available for later) an animal a day with questions, etc.

-The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum does a daily lesson too.

Each of them added so many thoughts. Attached is some activity ideas and listed below, are some links with activities as well:

Thanks Val, Kim, and Marti. I really appreciate it.

Floss Like A Madman!Emilio “Parent/Teacher Conference By Myself” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
