As a first time homeschooler only a couple months in I still worry I may not be doing enough each day for my kids. Then I think back to several weeks ago and see the progress we have made. My sweet Hadley (six and doing kindergarten), has struggled with fine motor issues. We have spent years in weekly occupational therapy to help strengthen her core and work on fine motor skills. A year ago she still did not have a dominate hand she would write with. She still held her pencil in a full fist grasp and switched between hands when scribbling. Today she independently finished her entire workbook page in a timely manner, forming every number, holding her pencil correctly (second picture). When we started in August she barely could do a line of numbers before tiring out and they were much messier (first picture) She is drawing all the time too. I love seeing her creations knowing how hard she works and how far she has come (third picture- fairy she drew today) #magnoliaschoolky
How do you explain infinity to a kid?
Or how do you get them to conceptualize the difference between 100 or 1000?
Or 1000 and 10,000 or even 1 Million!!! Want a visual to help?
Watch our video!! (Link in bio and below)
It was a GREAT visual Ellie and I got to use in her math lesson! Hope it helps!
1. anxiety provoked in a young child by separation or the threat of separation from their mother.
38 days ago Weston started preschool and the first two days were awful and very traumatic. Lots of tears from both of us. He kept telling me, in his sweet yet shaky voice, that he wanted to go but he was nervous. I knew if we (his teachers & us) could get him over the separation anxiety hump he’d thrive. I am happy to report that we got over the hump and he is really enjoying himself! The most remarkable thing is that he is sooooo much more independent.
Today, on my blog I share more in depth the exact steps we took to help him get over the hump.
Both my boys are more reserved and very slow to warm in new situations. Are your children attached to your hip or more independent?
Y's Owls Preschool had their Back to School Night earlier this week. Parents got to meet our teachers, see the classroom, and hear about what their children will be learning this year. #preschool#prek#mercercounty#ymca
I’m babysitting today so craft time had to happen lol. We’re all going to #monsterjam tomorrow night, so I thought I would hype the kids up with a monster truck craft. I glued the popsicle sticks together and cut out the tires, windows and other pieces. The kids painted the popsicle sticks and we worked together gluing everything down. Then they got to pick out stickers to decorate.😊 #momsohard#artsandcrafts#toddlercrafts
Upper Preschool had lots of fun finding different nature objects in the garden to create a face. The children worked together deciding what they was going to use and created the face and had fun choosing the name ‘Ruffles’. We discussed Autumn and why there was lots of leaves around our garden. 🍂

My daughter loves tracing and since everything is more fun when it is Halloween themed 👻🎃, I made her this packet of tracing cards! It has letters A-Z and a fun Halloween picture and word to go with each letter. I laminated and cut out each card and attached to a binder ring so she could use these over and over again. She has really enjoyed them and is learning some new words as well! 👻 Etsy link in my profile for the instant download. And check my stories for a video. 🎃
I am so grateful to be able to give these busy parents the protection and peace-of-mind that comes with an estate plan.💙⠀

Without intervention at this critical time, the trauma of homelessness can cause young children to suffer lifelong social, emotional and educational deficits.
-Between 3 and 10 million children (depending upon the study) will witness domestic violence in this country this year.
-The more often violence is used against a parent, the greater the risk that the children are also abused.
Most children who witness domestic violence manifest some symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
41% of parents served at Vogel Alcove last program year acknowledged having a history of domestic violence. However, we served MORE parents than those surveyed. Therefore, it's very probable that this percentage is even higher.
We're pretty sure that this picture is next to "JOY" in the dictionary...
If you ever want to put a smile on a child's face just bring them cupcakes! That's exactly what we ask you to do when you become a "Birthday Buddy" at Vogel Alcove.
When you sign up, you'll be paired with an infant, toddler, or preschool classroom and you'll be asked to bring cupcakes for the birthday child and their classroom friends. It's that simple. You can even bring a present for the birthday child if you'd like.
