Getting Ready for Full Day Kindergarten

I cannot believe that one week from today, the children will be heading back to school and summer will officially be over. Back to school time is always a very emotional time for me. I remember the nerves that escaleted within me, when I was a child, during the month of August as school approached. Then, when I became a teacher, those nerves turned into an anxious excitement. I never sleep the night before school, to this day! And now, as a parent, the nerves and anxiousness has taken on a completely new feel. My daughter will be heading into … Continue reading

Use @CommandBrand Clear Hooks to Get Organized for The School Year! {#GIVEAWAY} #Canadian

As I mentioned earlier this week, this time of year marks organization for me! It’s all about starting new routines and getting organized for a new school year. One product that I have found very helpful in our home is Command Brand hooks! I love how the new Command Clear hooks are easy to put up, removable, damage free and invisible. The clear hooks are less intrusive than other coloured hooks, but become very useful when the need for a hook arises. We use hooks in our closets and in the kitchen to hang the kids’ lunch bags.Would you like … Continue reading

@IndigoChapters Annual “Adopt a School” Program Helps Fill School Libraries

A book can change a child’s life forever!When I first started teaching, I taught in a high needs school with a VERY limited budget to work with for resources, materials and books. The library was sparse and what was in it was ripped, torn and out dated. It made me so sad to know that these children who desperately needed to be reading had nothing to choose from! This is why I am so excited to announce that from September 16th to October 6th, Indigo, Chapters and Coles across Canada will challenge Canadians to put new books into schools of … Continue reading

Back To School with Reebok ZigLite Comfort! {REV!EW}

We had quite the challenge this year with regards to footwear and my daughter who was entering grade two. Last year, she had started to learn how to tie her shoes and had decided that although she found it challenging, she had to wear lace up shoes to school this year. When a pair of Reebok ZigLite shoes showed up at the door, this gave her just the right amount of motivation to learn real fast how to tie her shoes up so that she could wear these as her indoor pair of shoes this year. She was SO excited … Continue reading
