Celebrate Carter's 150th Birthday and Win!

“I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
  
 I love birthdays! It is just such a special time to celebrate the time of one's birth, and I am excited to help celebrate Carter's 150th Birthday! Carter's knows what most parent's have figured out over the years: sometimes it is better to give than receive! For that reason they are offering 2 lucky winners $150 gift cards to go on a shopping spree in their stores! During this time, Carter's is also sponsoring 150 parties for homeless children which will celebrate 750 birthdays that will be celebrated with 9,000 children in shelters across the country. WAY TO GO CARTER'S!

Khan Academy launches Pixar in a Box


I heard Pixar in a Box and I had to keep reading. What has Pixar come up with next? So to make a long story short Pixar in a box is: a “Free online curriculum shows how Pixar filmmakers use science, technology, engineering, art and math to create movie magic” How does that NOT sound amazing?



Starting today, students can access Pixar in a Box and learn:
  •       How combinatorics are used to create crowds, like the swarm of robots in WALLŸE.
  •       How parabolas are used to model environments, like the forest in Brave.
  •       How weighted averages are used to create characters, like Buzz Lightyear and Woody.
  •       How linear and cubic interpolation are used to animate characters.
  •       How trigonometry is used to create the worlds in which Pixar stories take place.
  •       How simultaneous equations are used to paint all of Pixar’s images.

This entire project sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to get my daughters into it. I know both of them will love it, especially my 12 year old who like all kids loves not only Pixar but also movies. She is always intrigued on how things like this work.
“Our mission at Khan Academy is a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere,” said Sal Khan, Founder and CEO of the not-for-profit Khan Academy. “Sparking student interest in math and other academic fields is a key part of that, and we’re delighted to collaborate with Pixar to achieve this goal. Pixar in a Box gives students a new way to engage with key academic concepts and see how creative these concepts can be.”
“These lessons are the first phase of the project,” said Cruise. “While the first year focuses on math, future Pixar in a Box lessons will explore science, computer science, arts, and humanities.”
All Pixar in a Box resources are available free of charge at PixarInABox.org. The site will be updated as additional lessons become available.

Table Time Look & Learn

Education is huge in our home. I like quizzing my kids while we are spending time together, and try my hardest to make learning fun! That is why I jumped at the chance to review the the Table Time Look & Learn. This mostly math tablecloth is great for pre-school kids and kindergarten aged kids. It teaches some basic math in a very colorful and FUN table cloth!

This awesome table cloth sparks conversations about math, and helps kids with:


  • Comparisons, counting, addition and subtraction

  • Hours, days, months, seasons

  • Names of common and uncommon shapes

  • Greater than, less than

  • Plus one and minus one counting

  • Counting to 50 by 1's, 5's and 10's.  

  • Counting backwards from 50

  • and much more!
