Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats (which my family loves! Especially the new Blueberry flavor!) sponsored the development of the MSN Mom's Homeroom site where Moms can connect online to find ideas and articles on topics such as reading, attentiveness, learning, and memory. The site features four Moms from diverse backgrounds: a teacher, a psychiatrist, a former marketing coordinator, and an obstetrician/gynecologist. The Moms participate in online discussions and post unscripted videos of their views on helping kids succeed academically.
MSN Mom's Homeroom includes great resources such as:
* Scholastic and Encarta articles, tools, and activities
* Tips on reading comprehension
* Ways to work with your child's sports coach
* Articles on the meaning and importance of community service
* Memory tricks to help kids in school
There are also some great quizzes and, in my opinion, the best part is the community, where you can interact with and meet other moms! Another favorite of mine are the tips that I can use to help my child who has ADHD! The videos are also fun, and you can upload your own!
If/when you get some time, be sure to stop by MSN Mom's Homeroom and join in!
