Keeping Children Engaged: Fun Summer Activities for Kids and Families
Summer is a great time of year — the sun shines, days get longer and our schedules loosen. This makes it the perfect time to have a little fun and a lot of R & R, but how much of your family’s downtime is being spent in front of the TV or the Xbox?

I am proud to be a YOUNG REMBRANDT’S teacher!!
I am thrilled to see your article about visual learners. When I was in school, 100 years ago, I struggled in my classes and never knew why. I knew I was smart; what I didn’t know was that I was a visual learder. When the teacher ‘lectured’ I tuned out. When the board was used I ‘got it’.
Through my 20+ years in the classroom I always taught as though every student was a visual learner. Thank you for your article:)
