I wish I could tell you that Lani and I planned these postings – but that would suggest far more organization than we even come close to having. Nevertheless, Lani penned a great post inspired by a Lifehacker find of Wendy Piersall’s Educational Games for Kids. I will follow up with one inspired by the newest Joyful Jubilant Learning author, Angela (not her first name) Maiers. Angela also writes a blog of her own – you should go check it out.

As a parent, I find the data shocking. Unfortunately, I know little about how to combat it. The major reason for this post is to do the same thing as Angela did – ask for ideas. There seems to be a disconnect somewhere…bureaucracy maybe…I don’t know. But there has to be a proactive idea out there that has worked.
I am wondering – is it time to reinvent the wheel? Or, has it already been done and not enough people know about it?
I know I have some educators, parents, and all around smart folks that honor me with visits here. If ever there was a time to kick in your two cents – now is it.
