Creating A Love For Learning

By

Creating a Love for Learning – by Terri Tura Simply put; Engagement + Learning =  Success When we engage our children in the classroom, we foster a love of learning.   Imagine how that will benefit every child throughout their lifetime! So, just HOW do we engage our children to learn well? The Education Initiative (TEI) going to ballot in November 2014 can certainly help foster a love of learning in every child in Nevada.  When passed, TEI will fund Nevada K-12 schools with $800,000,000 million annually.  These funds can give teachers more time in the classroom, increase the student ratio in every classroom, raise salaries, add technology and provide new textbooks, to name just a few benefits.  Read on… The best way to learn is when we are absorbed, focused, interested –time passes and we don’t even notice.  In fact time seems to stand still. When students are involved in a...

It’s CyberMonday Where Are Moms in Vegas Shopping?

By

If you are like me, you love to shop online – convenience, convenience, convenience.  I am not knocking the wonderful feeling of walking around stores aimlessly browsing or trying on clothes – I love that!  But when I am looking for specific gifts, I turn to the web.  So, before Cyber Monday ends, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite online shopping haunts – some new and some old.  Enjoy! LATHER AND FIZZ –  Find your gifts before they sell out! – Lather & Fizz carries some of the hottest pajamas and candles on the market.  They also have adorable bath gift sets for kids and adults.  I was surprised to find how much the men in my life love the deeper, sexier KOBO candle scents – candles were not my go to present for men, until now.  My kids just love the surprise bath bombs and bath cupcakes.  I love Bedhead PJ’s and wear mine all...

Let’s talk about a woman’s body image / food / life …. Here are a few of my beliefs: Pick what you want to be and be it – but know that if you are heavy and unhappy, you have the power to be happy Know that our world is very visual… it just is. You can change your body, but only if you want to – not if someone else wants it for you. Sometimes when you are heavy –  it is like a blanket. When you are ready, the way to remove the blanked becomes apparent Life is a journey – every experience teaches you something You can be fit, healthy and thin and not obsess about it – revolutionary concept! I won’t bore you with the details of my life.  But, just know that I was an overweight kid from 4th to 6th grade.  Kids were mean to me.  It made me more compassionate and more understanding, but it also made me more determined.  I thinned...

Town Square Las Vegas is about to get so much better ….

By

Every once in a while, I get the opportunity to go on a date with one of my kids – just the two of us.  On this particular day, we decided to go to Town Square and walk around. I must say that I am so glad we did!  We saw sign after sign for new and fun shops coming into the development and I wanted to share them with you. First of all, did you know that the Sugar Factory will soon have a restaurant at Town Square near the movie theater?  This is our favorite place to go for birthday celebrations, but we don’t love taking our kids to the strip to do it.  Now they are open a location that is great for locals and visitors right in Town Square.  We like to order one or two big sundaes with a group of us and marvel at the size.  We can’t wait for them to open! We also noticed that Panda Express and Capriottis both have open shops in the movie theater section of Town...
