FIRST FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL ARE GREAT!

 

Hi Guys,

Well, I know that things have settled down for you now that school is in session.  I am sure that many of you have chosen clubs to be in before and after school, too.  I heard that at one high school they had a robotics club, where the students spend the semester making a robot that they can enter into competition to see who wins!  That sounds so exciting!  

Then I heard that there is a reading club at another school.  You know that’s the one I love the most. Reading opens the world up to you.  Just think if you want to know more about robotics, just grab a book at the library and read it.  You’ll learn a lot.  

I know a woman who is an author and she travels once a year to a reading conference and sits with students of all ages.  These students all have a desire to be writers themselves.  Say, that’s a good idea.  Have you ever had the desire to write a book?  Drop me a line if you have.  I’d like to talk with you about it.  Make sure it’s all right with Mom and Dad.  Just leave me a comment on this blog so I can get to you, and I’ll be glad to talk to you about it.

Do you see the picture above, with all the kids raising their hands to answer the question?  That’s what I want to make sure all of you do.  Reading makes you smarter, too.  So, keep it simple and read a book.  Talk to you later.

REMEMBERING THE BRAVE….CHILDREN

Hello guys, it’s me Jenny.  I was thinking about Memorial Day and all those who have protected us in America with their own lives.  Wow, I appreciate them and I really love them.  We can talk to each other and go places because of them.

I want you to look at the picture below.  It’s of some kids just like you.  They lived in 1865.  The one holding the flag is in the lead and they are honoring, saying ‘Thank You’ to some soldiers who died a long time ago.  Now, you know that kids in every age can be good patriots, too.  Just like you.  Ask  mom and dad about Memorial Day if you need to.  They’ll tell you that it’s a time when the entire country remembers men and women who fought in wars for our great country so that we can be free.  Do you want to honor them?  Then make it the best life you can and help others.  Talk to you soon.
