Last year was the first time my family and I attended Our Kid's World Fun Fest in West Palm Beach and we had a really great time. I recently found out the event is happening on Saturday April 26 & Sunday 27 and that I can even get FREE tickets for the kids online. Not only are my kids excited about this event but they are eagerly looking forward to meeting their favorite Nickelodeon characters. Here is the link where I accessed free kids tickets www.adayforkids.com/free-kids-ticket.cfm or you can visit their website www.adayforkids.com for more event details.

Carrie Peterson said...

Oh my gosh, Tamara, these ideas are brilliant!! You are so creative!


How frequently are you on the Mom Squad? This will give me a reason to start watching a little news :)

Tamara L. Chilver said...

Awww, thanks Carrie! I am usually do one Mom Squad segment per month. :)

Carrie Peterson said...

Is it on random days or something fixed?? I guess I can always just watch the videos here, but there's just something really exciting about seeing your friends on TV!

Tamara L. Chilver said...

It is random. Sorry about that Carrie. I would love for it to be a regular segment, like once a week at a particular time. Maybe in the future.

I have 2 kids ages 8(girl) and 10(boy) and they are interested in starting to write a pen pal. Does anyone know how I can get this started. I prefer snail mail.

Renee Harris said...

There is a lady at my church who's granddaughter is in 3rd grade and struggles with dyslexia. I didn't know which direction to do with helping her out as what to use. So I am turning to you for advice as far as suggestions to pass on to her so she can help her granddaughter. Let me know. Thank you

Tamara L. Chilver said...

Hey Renee! I would recommend a very strong phonics program, such as Explode the Code. Also, the dictation program that I discussed in this post- http://www.teachingwithtlc.com/2013/10/transform-your-childs-writing-using.html does wonders for kids with learning disabilities. Look at the sample image of the progress one child made using the program for the first time. Amazing!

One of the things that make kids excited is art time. These materials make art more inetresting and fun. Thanks for sharing ideas that will work for preschoolers to students belonging to higher grade levels.

Lydia said...

This project looks so clean, clear, and crisp. Mine didn't turn out as lovely as your examples, even though I tried several times. I'm using the cream, acrylic paint, thick card stock paper, waiting the 10 seconds in the mixture, and 5 minutes out of the mixture, after which, I gently scrap with a ruler. The results are still smudged somewhat. I would greatly appreciate your insight, Tamara!

Susen Kuchta said...

All these shaving cream projects of yours came out beautiful! We did it once with pumpkins and my daughter was not thrilled with the shaving cream but I'll try again since she's a year older now!

Leslie @KindergartenWorks said...

You found a book or two that I hadn't seen before! Thanks!

Tamara L. Chilver said...

Hmmm Lydia. I am trying to think of why they looked smudged. I usually have the best of luck with poster paints. Also, when you scrape off the shaving cream with a squeegee, don't press down too hard. BUT I am wondering if the brand of shaving cream you used could have been a factor? Maybe try another brand? Sorry it did not come out the way you wanted. Hopefully, you will figure out the cause soon. Fingers crossed :)

I love these ideas, I think they work perfectly well with young learners. I am actually thinking of using some of them while teaching my own kids
