Processed foods harm your body and seriously impact learning.

4:27 AM 2
Educate yourself on process foods!

Let’s eat better so we can help our children become better educated, make healthy choices and live a better life. This will improve their brain function and mean that they can get on with learning those all-important multiplication facts quickly and easily!

Food that has been produced without pesticides or chemical fertilizers is known as organic food. Do you often feel unwell and do your children lack energy and vitality? It could be what you are eating and what you are feeding them. If we want our children to be alert and able to learn, not just multiplication and times tables but a whole range of skills, then it is important we get their nutrient right.

Why else would you choose to eat organic food? We pay a lot in terms of flavor and nutrition to eat perfect-looking food. Organic food might have an occasional bruise on its flesh – but so does food that’s been sprayed with harmful chemicals. Organic food, though, are generally fresher and more flavorful.

Your body has to process everything you put into it and eliminate what it cannot digest. If your food contains toxins in the form of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, your body has to figure out a way to get rid of the toxins. When the body cannot get rid of toxins fast enough, it stores them until it has time to eliminate them. This can lead to many health problems.

Most farmers use harmful pesticides to produce food. Many of these have been found to be carcinogenic. It figures, then, that by reducing our exposure to these harmful toxins that we can improve our overall health. The body works hard to eliminate toxins. The body should not have to work so hard to do this as it has other important jobs to do such as fight off bacteria, viruses and cancerous cells. Toxins are bad for us and we and our children would feel a lot better if we did not have to fight off excessive toxins every day. Some people are more sensitive to toxins than other and so it would be a much better choice to eliminate them from your diet whenever possible. Start with fruit and veg and then move on to organic meat. I have noticed the difference in vitality, health and my skin is a lot calmer than it used to be. Give your child a fighting chance, go organic wherever possible.

Help with Multiplication Skills with Superfoods for your Brain

11:36 PM 0

In order to help your child, you need to be fit and healthy both mentally and physically. There are many super foods for the brain that can help you achieve this. Multiplication skills need you to have a good memory. Your kid/s also need a good memory.  It figures that if you eat well, then your kid/s  will eat well. You cannot control what kids eat at school, but you can control eating habits at home. Here are some super foods that will help you keep your brain and those multiplication skills in top shape!

Make Your Brain Amazing!
Salmon and deep-water fish are an excellent choice, as is freshwater fish.  They all have high levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are essential for healthy brain function.

Blueberries are said to help with stress, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.   Research has also shown that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills.  

Avocados, which have good ‘fatty fruit,’ are beneficial to healthy blood flow and decreased blood pressure, reducing the chances of developing hypertension, which can lead to a stroke.

Nuts and seeds are fantastic sources of vitamin E, an important vitamin needed by your brain to stave off declining cognitive functions. Drop in a few bags of nuts into your supermarket trolley! Cashews, walnuts, sunflower, peanuts and sesame seeds and almonds are all beneficial for a fit and healthy brain! Again this will help with your maths skills.

Whole-grain breads, brown rice, and oatmeal are a valuable asset to a healthy brain by reducing the risk for cardiac disease.  By maintaining a healthy heart and improved blood flow, the brain will perform at its optimum level because of the increased oxygen and nutrient delivered via the bloodstream.  Complex carbohydrates are also found to deliver the brain with a continuous flow of glucose that enhances your brain function. However, simple carbohydrates, such as those in junk food, give the brain a quick and very short sugar high. This makes you feel tired, hungry and irritable. When you are less irritable you are more likely to be able to help your child with homework and learning multiplication.

Dark chocolate has powerful antioxidant properties, contains several natural stimulants, which enhance focus and concentration, and encourages the production of endorphins, which helps improve mood. Again, moderation is the key.

Tea is a powerful antioxidant – freshly made tea as it promotes healthy blood flow. Be careful with black teas as they contain caffeine.

Kids Printable Multiplication Games - Kids Playing Board Games

8:16 AM 0
Learning the multiplication tables is an important element of maths. It is the cornerstone whereby kids can go on to develop their mathematical skills. This skill will allow them to manipulate numbers and understand the basic concept of skip counting and adding on. However, this can be a boring and tedious process for many children and one that parents and even teachers may shy away from, particularly if a child having problems learning the multiplication tables. I, as a parent, totally understand the frustration. If parents understood just how important learning multiplication facts are, then they would spend more time and resources ensuring their child understood and could recite most of the times tables by heart and the rest by a process of deduction.
Kid Printable Multiplication Games
When my son was younger, I decided to start to teach skip counting as soon as I could. We would do a little each day. I would also combine this with basic multiplication tables such as the 1s and 2s. He then became familiar with the concept of grouping and skip counting but at the same time he was learning them off by heart. By the age of 9 he knew the times tables by heart.  I know that practice makes perfect. There is no need to bore your child to tears with endless lessons one day and none another day. Instead do a little each day. As my gran used to say, ' little and often is better than none and then loads!'

 I  have  also found that my students respond to little and often. Parents tend to panic; this is normally right after parents' evening when they have been informed that their child does not know the tables!  Having not taken much interest prior to this, all of a sudden parents are scouring the internet, looking for maths books, workbook or just about anything that will help. I have done this with my own children!
I wanted a way for my students to learn and have fun. I also wanted to have fun! I decided that playing multiplication games was a fun and cool way for kids to learn. Yesterday, after playing my football times table multiplication game, another student challenged a student to a rematch! That says it all! Printable Multiplication Games Are The Way To Go!
