The University of Florida created this amazing blending board tool which will be an excellent resource for classroom teachers and parents to utilize during distance learning.

UFLI is proud to unveil our latest digital resource for teaching reading: The Virtual Blending Board! Have you ever wondered how you could engage your students in practice to reinforce their decoding skills in a virtual learning environment? The Virtual Blending Board allows you to do all the things you would do in person with a low-tech blending board and more! A special thank you to our friend, Dr. Angelos Barmpoutis, from UF’s Digital Worlds Institute for collaborating with us to bring the Blending Board to life!

Creativity might be defined as putting things together in novel ways, or seeing the world, or a given problem, with fresh eyes. While some people are born with talent in certain mediums -- an artist’s eye, for instance, or perfect pitch, or a writer’s way with words -- everyone has the capacity to be creative. All of us need access to our creativity to solve the problems of daily life, and all of us need to express our creativity to engage our whole selves and feel fully alive... The same parenting that helps kids become emotionally healthy encourages creativity...

5 Steps to Get Re-Energized

"I now take orders only from my inner Knowing... It feels to me like a loving, playful guide, like the reason it will only reveal the next right thing is that it wants me to come back again and again, because it wants to do life together." - Glennon Doyle

The Importance of Bare Feet | Maggie Dent

Surely one of the cutest parts of newborn babies is their feet. They are like little blobs, soft and squishy and yearning to be covered in kisses. Part of the reason they are so cute is that when they are born these little blobs are made up of a mass of cartilage rather than fully ...

44 Phonemes

When teaching students the 44 phonemes (sounds), it is important to show them where the sound is articulated in the mouth. When I am teaching sounds to my students, I give them a small mirror so they can see what their mouth or tongue is doing as they make each sound. For our teachers, Discount School Supply sells a pack of twelve small wooden mirrors that is perfect to use when teaching the 44 phonemes!

I’ve been told that I “understand” toddlers (and nothing could be a greater compliment). This might be because my own emotional development was partially arrested as a toddler for reasons I haven’t yet unraveled, but it’s probably also because after all the time I’ve spent observing todd...
