Praises of a Wife and Mommy was created for mom's like me. I like to share secrets, parenting advice, deals, the many arts and crafts that we do at our at home preschool, and most importantly share my faith. My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower. Praises of a Wife and Mommy started small but is cotinuing to grow. I love to review products and hold giveaways.

The Missing Alphabet- A Parents’ Guide to Developing Creative Thinking in Kids by
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
The Missing Alphabet is a new approach to teaching just for parents! I am a certified teacher (staying home with my babies for now) and the book was right when it said our education system was created during the Industrial Revolution, where we focused on Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. The three R's are important but we live in a digital age and our teaching and parenting should change to reflect that.
Parents don't freak out in a panic thinking this is going to be a challenge. The book outlines great ideas to use in your every day life.
The balance is making sure you allow your kids to get creative and using that creativity during literacy times.
The book gives examples and great ideas for all parents to try with their child/ren. Some categories include: line, rhythm space, movement, texture, color, shape, light, sound.
If you want your child to have the extra edge in education then parents help them out. Get your hands on this book and let the creativity flow! Once you get going on some of these things you start to naturally flow with these ideas in your every day life and teaching your children becomes natural. I received this book for free to review. I was not paid for review and all opinions are 100% mine.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
