By: Donna Chaffins | Date: January 2, 2013 | Categories: Children, Education, Infographs, Parenting, Technology

We recently had an open meeting at my son’s elementary school with our county’s superintendent… and many of the 4th and 5th graders wanted to know when each of the students would have their own iPads. I don’t think the kids even thought about the iPads (or any tablet, for that matter) taking the place […]

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: December 19, 2012 | Categories: Education, Guest Posts, Infographs

Guest Post A lot of subjects that people learn in school seem pointless at the time of the lesson. However, this does not mean that you will never again use the information.

Image Source Rush, rush, rush. This is what mornings used to be like in our home. My son would get breakfast, but usually my husband and I would just skip breakfast. Who had the time? Now don’t get me wrong, mornings are still busy here during the school year. But now that school has been […]

No more ‘Lost’ in the Lost and Found with Mabel’s Labels
