HOW IS EVERYTHING GOING?

Well guys, it has been such a whirlwind of events and activities for me. But we are almost four whole weeks into the new year and I am so glad!

Got a few questions:

  1. Have you continued to read and visit the library?
  2. Have you become a true friend to a special needs student at your school?
  3. Is your GPA – grade point average a “B” or better?
  4. Are you reading to your little brother, sister, cousin, niece or nephew?

You gotta keep reading if you want to open up the world for yourself.

Special  needs kids are just people like you and me. They love friends and laughing just like you do. Please sit with them in class and even at lunch.

It doesn’t make any sense to go to school, do class work, have homework, projects, presentations and do speeches to get any grade below a “B”. You were made by God, and a “C” is just average. Blah! You are so much more than average!

If you read to the little kids in your life, you’ll help them to learn to read better and you’ll see that they, too, will be lovers of books.

So guys, remember that I am rooting for you. I want to hear from you, too. Besides my own books, here are a couple of book to read to kids.  Talk to you later.

GOOD STUDY HABITS ARE FOR WINNERS!

getting-organized

Hi Guys,

Well, it’s been a few weeks since school has started and I am sure that there has been some homework and projects given to you already. I just have a question. Has it been hard to get back into the study mode since the summer is over? I can understand that. Here’s a couple of tips to get you back into the good habits you had in school that got you those high test scores and good grades at card markings:

  1. When you get home from school, if you have any homework or reading do it immediately, because you’ve been in school and study mode already for the day. Keep it up and soon, you’ll be finished with your work and can relax and do other things.
  2. Keep a list of your school work on a white board or a cork board in your room or even on the refrigerator at home. That way you won’t forget important work that has to be turned in.
  3. Make going to the library part of your week or weekend. It keeps your mind working well and you will be at the right place to get the answers you need.
  4. You’re not too young for this next tip: Keep a list of all of your daily activities and check them off as you complete them.  (get ready for school the night before, make your lunch and put in the fridge, get your instrument and backpack ready and put them where you won’t forget them in the morning; get your gym clothing and shoes cleaned and ready for  physical ed.)  All of these things will get you back into the right mode of studying and organization. And you can’t help but be a winner! Talk to you later.

DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED!

Hi Guys,

Well, it won’t be long until the Summer vacation is here.  How many of you did great in school?  What I mean is how many of you got A’s and  B’s in  your classes.  I hope all of you did.  But I want to tell you something, please, please, please take time and get to the Library where  you can check out at least one book on let’s say, social studies and read it, so that you’ll be able to keep up when you get back in school.  Here’s a little quiz for you all.  If you need to, ask Mom and Dad or big brother or big sister to help you with it.  Send the answers back to me in the comment section below and I’ll check it for you.

  1. What city do  you live in?
  2. How old is the city that you live in? (you can find out this answer at the Library)
  3. What state do you live in?
  4. What county do you live in?
  5. Do you like the Library?

Well guys, I’ll be waiting to hear from you all.  Until next time, remember, “keep it simple and read a book”.
