Word-finding, Stress Management, Awesome Authors, and School Tips: A Fabulous Friday Round-up

A few posts that I think are great....

  • Ever have that "tip of the tongue" feeling, when you know you know a word but can't quite find it? Caroline Bowen posts on word-retrieval (word-finding) difficulties. She explains a bit about the problem, talks about how to assess it, and provides tons of practical tips and suggestions for helping children work on it.  She also directs readers over to two other super duper websites: Word Finding Difficulties and The Word Finding Lab. Awesome stuff.
  • Moving Smart Now discusses how stress can impact a child's ability to learn and how a parent's stress can impact a child's-- a powerful reminder that, in taking care of ourselves, we are taking care of our children.  She also gives some important suggestions for helping your little one deal with stress, which leads to better learning, growing, and loving for everyone involved.
  • No Time For Flashcards share Five Great Children's Book Authors. I love their choices! (And, for what it's worth, I adore the book I Love You Forever. Still can't read it without crying.)

Happy Friday!
