About the Author
Hi everyone! I’m Sandy Fleming, your hostess here at Holiday Learning for Kids. I’m so glad you stopped by!
Holiday Learning for Kids is my “fun” project. It’s the one that I’m excited to work on each and every day because it tickles my funny bone most of the time. For example, I’m writing this post on November the ninth and it’s Chaos Never Dies Day. How cool is that?? I’m sure every single person visiting has that feeling every now and again. If you have children in your life (your own or other people’s) then I am positive that you can relate. The Chaos really does never actually go away…it just grows and diminishes with each day’s circumstances.
Holiday Learning for Kids is a great way to take some of that extra energy that children always seem to have and channel it into great learning activities. Some of the ideas will relate directly to academic skills and others turn more to important life skills like charity and interacting with others. The one thing they have in common is motivation value. Children who would normally balk at practicing math skills will happily calculate the average ‘sourness’ rating for various sour foods in a survey on Sourest Day (October 25). Most of the time, they’ll never even notice that they are practicing!
In case you were wondering, I am a special education teacher and private tutor by trade. I work from home with clients of all ages and stages and I also do tutoring online, through email and via instant messenger. I specialize in literacy development with students of all levels, working happily with young elementary students who have a hurdle to overcome on their reading path to adults who need to improve reading skills to gain job prospects or achieve an educational milestone. If *you* need a hand with academic pursuits, let’s talk.
I live in southwest lower Michigan with my husband and an assortment of pets. I’ve got three grown or nearly grown daughters at various stages of blasting off into their own lives. I’ve worked as a teacher or tutor for over 30 years and I’m looking forward to another few decades of helping students achieve dreams.
Drop me an email at sfleming1235 at gmail.com! I love to make new friends. Or, leave me some comments here at the site. And if you’re interested, I run several other (perhaps more serious) websites, too. I’d love for you to check them out:
