Learning is not a one-size-fits-all system. Students with physical, mental or learning disabilities often benefit from an unconventional approach to education. These three tools can help them get through each school day with a sense of achievement.

1. Rules and Rewards

Rules provide a necessary amount of structure to a child's day. Stating rules and expectations clearly and having a visual reminder of what those expectations are will help kids navigate their choices. Placing a colorful list of rules up at home or in the classroom can be really helpful. Pairing rules with rewards for good behavior is also a great motivational tool. It helps kids learn that actions have consequences and empower them to make good choices.

2. Tactile Tools

Though many classrooms cater to an auditory learning style, not all students thrive within that kind of environment. For kids with visual or auditory impairment or for kids who have trouble focusing on their schoolwork, getting through class can be even harder. Tactile games like braille mazes help kids with sight limitations build their spatial awareness. Similarly, using cheerios to practice addition and subtraction can help students improve their conceptual thinking in a more engaging way.

3. Visual Additions

Having photo flashcards that supplement storytelling or language acquisition exercises can help struggling students grasp new concepts at a quicker rate. Pairing a visual with each word or concept strengthens that connection between letters and meaning. It can help students create a memorable mental picture for the next time they have to recall that word's meaning, put together a sentence or write a story.
There are myriad tools, apps and exercises available to help kids with unique learning needs succeed in school. Getting kids up and moving, engaging them in activities and incorporating each kind of learning style can help create a more accessible environment both at school and at home.


Resting in God's promises

It's so hard to get up this morning, the weather is gloomy because of the coming typhoon..and because i have a cold allergy, my eyes is watery and my nose is so itchy, these makes me all the more glued to my bed. But I need to get up and go to work. :(

I really look forward to the day where I can  sleep and take a rest as long as I want..without thinking or worrying about anything. I just thank the Lord for always reminding me that through Him, we can find strength, peace and rest. 

And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. ~Exodus 33:14

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. ~Isaiah 40:29-31

In times like this, I just quiet my spirit, meditate on His words and take a rest in God's promises.

Simple Ways to Make Her Smile

They say that women are complicated. They lie. While men and women both have their mysteries that neither gender will ever fully understand, it’s unfair to say that women are a more complex species than men. In fact, it takes very little to make a woman happy. If you’re shaking your head in disagreement, try one or all of these simple ways to make her grin. You are guaranteed to get a reaction from her.

Have Her Favorite Snack Delivered

She loves it when you show her random ways that you care about her, so if you’re thinking about buying her flowers, that’s a very sweet gesture. If you know her favorite snack, that’s an even better gesture! 
  • If she’s a cookie fanatic and you look into cookie delivery Atlanta. There are so many flavor choices that her favorite is definitely a click away!
  • Bread is one of the best gifts that mankind has given the world. Instead of ordering a full-on pizza, have different kinds of breadsticks delivered to her door. Cheesy, buttery deliciousness covered in garlic is not something you can really argue against.
  • Look on apps like GrubHub or DoorDash and see what meals are in her area. Pick her favorite dish from her favorite restaurant and surprise her. Pancakes at 10:00 pm might be the best thing you ever do for her!

Leave Her Love Notes

There’s something so romantic about a good-old-fashioned note from your sweetheart. Leave her little notes to find with sweet messages on them. Not sure where to start?

  • I love you!
  • Have a great day, I’m thinking of you.
  • I appreciate you and all you do for us.
  • You are the love of my life!
Women are not as complex as the media might have you believe. It’s not hard to let your girl know that you love her; taking the time to do it at all is what means the most to her.
