All Aboard! The August issue of Story Monsters Ink has arrived!

When my son was a preschooler, he loved Genevieve and DC from Disney Junior's Choo Choo Soul.  So when I saw that there is a magazine called "Story Monsters Ink", I was excited it.  It brought me back to do the days of my son's preschool age.


Time flies when you're having fun, and Five Start Publications have shown this.  What started out as an idea for a newsletter has turned into a major magazine featuring authors and performers who have made significant marks in the literary world, such as Rosemary Wells, Garcelle Beauvais, and more,  with subscribers across the globe.

The Impact of Title IX on Women's Equality in Sports

The record-breaking viewership of the Women’s World Cup final this year showed how far women’s sports have come since Title IX, which was a law enacted in 1972 to prevent gender discrimination in sports.

 In fact, the year before Title IX was enacted, there were only 310,000 girls and women in America playing high school and college sports; today, there are more than 3.3 million.  Below is  an infographic, created by Ohio University’s Athletic Administration program, which illustrates the importance of Title IX and the monumental strides that it has helped achieve in women’s sports. While women only received 2% of college athletic budgets in 1972, by 2010, women received 40% of budgets.

Geography Lesson 
How to make geography lessons stick - Educents blog

How do you teach geography? Do you spend hours creating a map, labeling, cutting and pasting? It's so fun imagining all the ways this Mona MELisa reusable US Map can be used in the classroom or at home. All the states, capitols, and geographic information is ready for you to stick on to the map!



Here are a few geography activities to try:
  1. Playing "Name That State" with family and friends during the holidays. What better way to get the whole family together than a game for kids of all ages. Work in teams or alone to identify states and challenge seasoned family members in lightening fast rounds.
  2. Need a little direction? Use the compass to have children in the class describe where states are in relation to each other. Let your kiddos take turns directing each other around the country by using the directions on the compass. They'll have an awesome time walking their fingers from east from west in search of the correct state-- but be sure to watch out for the oceans!
  3. Guess and reveal state capitals by peeling away the brightly colored shapes. Remembering capitals can be tricky, but the easy to peel states with state capitals hidden underneath offer up a great way to ditch the flashcards and take the learning to the walls!
  4. Keep track of where you've been (or where you're going). I love this one! Use the state names to label the states where all of the students in your class have been.


What a cool tool for your geography lessons! Don't miss out on all this time-saving geography tool, so be sure to check out the discounted Peel, Play &  Learn sets on Check Us Out!

  2. Education and technology plays an important role in the development of our skills; therefore we accept both education and technology simultaneously. Now days where technology rapidly increases we have found that people are able to develop their skills in both technical and non-technical field; in every education organizations also students are getting extra-curricular activities in order to develop their skills and build a suitable career. So the importance of education and technology is really important.
