However, the temptation to stay within the walls of the fabulous HMV Ritz to see the very much buizzed about Dog is Dead was too much and proved not to be a disappointment. After a quick bit of tucker over at Oddest - a lovely little Oxford Rd bar with a fine selection of ales - it was time to get into the evening of the festival. The highlights of the night, which ran into the very early hours indeed, had to be the always entertaining The Drums at The Ritz, the incredible Lulu James over at Joshua Brookes and finally Islet at the Sound Control live lounge. It has to be said, that as the music shifted the latter hours at the club, things may have gotten a little blurry for some of us - but after a day like this I think its fair to say we deserved it.
It has been a long while since I last wrote. I really miss it when I cant put my thoughts to paper (or keys... as it is). Last week I was teaching a bunch of kids aged 4-8 about the importance of mindfulness. This is a class which I teach every week. If you have never taught little kids before, it is much like trying to herd cats. The mindfulness class is one hour and for one hour I need about ten to twenty different activities as their attention span is so fleeting. Last week I had prepared a very exciting lesson using vinegar and baking soda to demonstrate how, when your mind is racing, it is like bubbles in the jar. I LOVED my new experiment and the kids were mildly amused for thirty seconds. I taught them to put their hand on their belly and breathe down the "bubbles of anxiety in their minds". Naturally as the acetic acid reacted completely with the sodium bicarbonate, the bubbles settled. Seemed like a compelling lesson? But, as with the others, it was... on to the next lesson!

Third- Hold their arm and direct it into large circles. Then, let go of their arm and guide their arm into creating lines, circles and marks on the paper. He or she will love the tactile, warm, interaction with you, and be thrilled that there is color on the paper. Fourth- Praise your child, and point to the marks and let them discover that they have created something by themselves. Smiles will abound. Now you are both ready to draw a person! Whether a child is from Asia, Africa, or America, a pre-school child sees a person as a circle with a face. It is universal. The arms radiate from the sides of the circle. The legs sprout from the bottom of the circle. Take their hand and have them feel their eyebrows, and look into a mirror and point out eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, ears, and hair. Have them feel their arms, legs and feet. As a child draws and grows, their person will have more detail. Your child will have more of a body concept. Draw eyebrows. Put their hands on their ears, and help them draw the ears. Ask your child to draw hair. It usually will not be attached to the head. To them, the hair is above the head.
Highly portable, dot to dots, like coloring pages, are great for travel. Theyll keep kids busy and guessing for a fair amount of time. Be sure to provide a good pencil and plenty of crayons. Dot to dots are such a proven favorite that there are now versions available for adults as well as online dot-to-dot activities. The Internet makes it especially handy to instantly download and print dot-to-dot puzzles, often for free. Whether youre just looking for a fun activity or youre looking for ways to build fine motor skills (where the small muscle movements work in coordination with the eyes), its easy to "connect the dots" and see why dot to dot puzzles and activities are a great choice for home or school.
Reynolds story, which has been translated into 22 languages including Braille, has been inspiring the creativity of students and teachers around the world. Reynolds has also been one of the main inspirations for teacher Angela Maiers, who began the World Movement Choose2Matter. What would happen if children and adults not only believed that they had the power to take on the world, but chose to use it? Maiers asked at her TEDx Conference in Des Moines, Iowa this August. She wholeheartedly believes that encouraging others and the self to understand that "You Matter" can make teachers and students more responsible and empowered. Reynolds teamed up with Maiers this year to kickoff the Dot Day event at the Boston Childrens Museum this Saturday. This year more than half a million students participating in 15,000 classrooms worldwide registered online for International Dot Day.
