Staying Organised At School: 3 tips

So, in my last post we covered staying organised and successful at online school, but what about when we return to face to face learning? Well, in this post I am going to share how I like to stay organised when we get back to face-to-face learning.

1. Try and get to class on time. Getting to class on time ensures that you do not get in trouble and do not miss any information that may be of use. I try to get to all of my classes on time and it is much better than being late, I always have time to prepare for class and sometimes to have a chat to my friends. If you do not know where your classes are or when they happen, ask a friend who knows to go with you or ask your teacher for a schedule. [ 1. 2.]

2. Take Time To Study. This is especially important to do if you do not understand the lesson. Studying with friends, by yourself, with help from parents or even with your teacher is a smart idea to ace the next quiz. By studying your brain is able to take in more information or understand it more if you memorise or practice the subject you are studying. I spend at least an hour studying subjects that I have tests or quizzes on. Sometimes I spend more time studying if I do not understand a certain subject, and it has helped me a lot. [3. 4.]

3. Limit Screen Time. By limiting screen-time on weekdays ( especially before bed ) your brain functions better. My parents do not allow my brother and I to play video-games on weekdays and even if we get annoyed sometimes, the rule helps us focus on school and homework instead of how much health we have in a game of Minecraft! [5. 6.]

4.Ask Questions. The most clever students in classes are always the kids that ask questions when they don’t understand. You can ask the teacher, your friends or even your parents. The kids who do not understand but say nothing never do well in quizzes or assessments because they still have no idea what to do. So when you are listening, you can ask yourself the question: ‘Do I understand this?’ This is called metacognition or thinking about your thinking. You should not be afraid of asking questions, because even the simplest questions help you learn more and grow into becoming a smarter and better person. [7. 8.]

Successful Online Learning: 5 tips

Lots of kids struggle to be successful when learning online. Personally, I find with online there is often more work and its harder to get things to the teacher. I had a hard time when I was new to online learning, but now I am one of the best students in the class when it comes to turning in work and getting things done. Today I will be sharing my tips on how to be successful during online learning.

  1. Be Prepared. Before the day starts you might want to make sure you have everything you need such as: your computer, pens and pencils, sharpeners and anything else you might use at school that you could use now. Also, it is useful to check any Google Meet or Zoom links that you many need to access. If you have to run around the house getting supplies you will most likely miss important pieces of information. This has happened to my brother and I many times, we think that being prepared before the classes, is definitely something that you should do to stay stress free and successful.[1. 2.]

2. Know what you have to do. Knowing what you have to do and when you have to do it helps with becoming more successful too. For example, if you do all of your assignments at once without needing to then you will burn yourself out.Try creating a timetable with lessons and when items are due, so that you can pace yourself and ensure things are completed in a timely manner. Remember also, that if you do not know something, communication with your teacher is important so that you do not get yourself into a pickle trying to figure out what to do.

3. Turn things in on time. Getting your assignments turned in and done before they are due is something that you should try and do. This way you will come out with less homework, meaning you can get off the screens sooner. Getting things in on time also prevents late grades which can lower your average. Again, I recommend a timetable or calendar to make a note of dates when assignments are due.[3. 4.]

4. Take Breaks This is one of the most important things to do when you are online learning. Taking breaks is very important because if you do not you may get eyestrain or a headache. I think you should take a break for about 5 to 10 minutes after every hour online at least. This way your brain gets a break, making it ready for more learning. I take breaks when I can and it has helped me calm myself when I am confused or stressed. Then when I have calmed down, I get back up and try again, often with better results. Examples of breaks are: getting a glass of water, riding your bike or walking, doing a drawing, playing with a pet or taking them on a walk and anything you like doing away from the screens.[ 5. 6.]

5. Good Routine. Having a routine is something that helped my family and I through online school. Routines are especially good for children from ages 4-12 because it is something that the kids can count on in times of uncertainty and stress. When designing a routine, remember to focus on a balance of screen time, food breads and screen breaks. Staying on screens for longer than a few hours is not healthy for kids. Kids who have a routine also get in better moods when they know what they are doing, this makes it easier to get things done without a hassle. [7. 8.]

Pen Pals During COVID-19

For the past two years we have had to suffer lockdowns and hours of boredom. My family and I have been in lockdown more than twice and we think that getting bored is horrible. So I think that if you’re someone in lockdown or maybe just someone looking to get creative, pen paling is a great way to do it.

How Do I Find I Pen Pal? Finding Pen Pals can be one of the hardest things about starting pen paling. There are so many websites, so many offline accounts and lots of things to do! But don’t worry, I can offer some tips.

Websites. Finding a website is hard because there are numerous of options to choose from. I found all of my pen pals on the website Global Pen Friends. It is a free website that allows you to search for your ideal pen pal in no time. All you have to do is make an account, search for your ideal pen pal, choose one other online person from the results of your search and then send them a message and wait for a reply. The website is for all ages from 5-99 years of age so if you want to sign your kids or even yourself up, you can! If you are interested in finding your pen pal on global pen friends then click the link on the right: https://www.globalpenfriends.com [1.]

How to Identify A Hacker. Hackers like to pretend to be normal people like us. This way its easier to drag people into clicking viruses or trick them into being scammed. Hackers often use things like online video games and common apps like face book but they also sometimes have accounts on pen pal websites. So to make sure you know what to do if you encounter a hacker here are a few ways to identify them:

1.They often don’t have an account photo: Hackers do this a lot because it hides their identity so its harder to track them down if you call the authorities. But also remember that just because they don’t have a photo doesn’t mean that they’re a hacker, they may have just not uploaded one yet.

2.They will ask for personal details before getting to know you: This is a common thing hackers also like to do. This way they can access your personal information without having to reveal too much to you. If someone asks for your details straight away you have two options, either you can ignore them and delete their contact or you can change the subject. But either way, be careful before you reveal any information. They could be using you just to get information to hack your sites or computer.

What Do I Send Them? I personally like to send my pen pals little gifts in the letters I send them. I give them things like sticker pads, temporary tattoos and other flat gifts. But you do not have to send them anything if you do not want to, I just think it makes the letter extra special.

Speaking of letters, I suggest it is a good idea to write one. It doesn’t have to be long or complicated, if you like you could just ask a few questions and tell them a bit about yourself. You can look up ideas of what to write on the internet if you need too. So personally I think its a good idea to just send one small, flat gift and a letter, that makes it nice and balanced! [2.3.]

Is It Worth It? I think that it is worth getting a pen pal, especially if you’re bored at home. Its a great way to get creative and have a bit of fun. But you have to make sure that if you are going to get a pen pal you have to stay fully committed or else you will end up loosing contact and then you will have to find another pen pal. So in conclusion, I believe that having a pen pal is a great idea as long as you are willing to put a lot of effort in and try your hardest. If you do all of this, then you will begin to build a great relationship with your new pen pal.

Why You Should Adopt Your Pet From A Shelter…

Today I am going to talk about something that is very important to me and I’m sure, to many other people as well: Where you buy your pet from?

Expensive Pets, many people choose expensive, posh pets instead of buying a pet from a pet shelter. I think that this is extremely wrong, especially when there are so many sad, unfortunate animals that are looking for a home. But if you currently own a pet that you didn’t buy from the animal shelter or pound then please don’t kick it out just because that was where you bought it, please just try to think ahead in the future. [ 1. 2. ]

Please don’t adopt if you aren’t ready! Pets that live at the animal shelter are there in the first place is because their owner couldn’t take care of them. It is a common for pets to be kicked out or sold because the owner couldn’t take care of them. If you are planning on adopting a pet you have to make sure you know how to look after it and care for it. If you are unable to care for a pet then I think you should wait a while before you decide to adopt. So kids, even though it might not seem fair I think its easier to get a pet fish first… [ 3. 4. ]

A Pets Lifestyle. If you do end up buying a pet you need to know how to look after it. There are a variety of pets that you can buy or adopt. But they all have different needs. As an owner, you will need to spend some time learning what your particular pet needs to be happy and healthy. For example -for a cat, you need to clean its kitty litter and let it outside for fresh air. For a dog you might need to play with it and take it on a walk with you. A bird will require a suitable cage so it can fly around to get exercise and for a fish you’ll need to clean its bowl and feed it daily. Pets have different needs depending on what type of animal you have. You also need to clean their living area on a weekly basis. Whether its a dirty kitty litter or a large fish tank, you need to make sure everything is clean and ready for your animals to enjoy. If you don’t know how to do this then you should be able to find some articles and videos online.[5. 6.]

Thank you for reading my post and please remember that if you buy a pet you have to be fully committed and cater for all their needs, Thank You. By: Lily Hall

Should Your Kid Start A Blog?

This question crosses many peoples mind when they think about child bloggers. And to be honest, its a really hard question to answer. But in this post I am going to try as best as I can to explain the down sides and the upsides of whether your child should start a blog.

The Down Sides. Being a blogger myself, this isn’t something I often like talking about, but every blogger knows that there’s always a downside to blogging. Let’s start with a pretty common problem can become quite annoying, You eventually run out of ideas! I have had this happen to me many times but eventually you’ll be able to find something to write about. Although it may not come to you straight away, after some thinking you will find the inspiration you need!

The second problem that is unfortunate and is harder to find a solution for is Cyber-Bullies and sometimes, hackers. Every parent knows what a Cyber- Bully and/or a hacker is. Parents may know how to avoid and get rid of them, but with kids it’s another story. Before giving the child their own blog, you should educate them about hackers and Cyber-Bullies so that in-case it happens they will know how to deal with them. In case you are wondering more about cyber bullying, here’s a short video that will briefly educate you about it:https://youtu.be/6ctd75a7_Yw [1. 2. 3.]

Writing Skills and Typing. Some kids dislike writing as they think its pointless and boring. But if your wanting to change your child’s view on writing and grammar, I think that a blog may be the way to do that. Kids these days love devices and technology, so they can’t understand the point of writing stories and essays on paper. Well, a blog is a place where they can practice writing and typing as well as sharing their stories and point of view about the world. [ 4. 5.]

How Do Help? Helping your child to start a blog is easier than you think, you simply need to support them by doing things like: Giving them a few tips and advice, sharing the blog over all of your social media accounts and you could also helping them find pictures and/or videos for their posts. Remember these are just a few ideas and ways to help. Remember, the possibilities are endless all you have to do is try it!

A Trip To Chiang Mai

A few days ago my family and I went on a small vacation to Chiang Mai. In this blog post I am going to tell you about my time in Chiang Mai and some activities you can do there.

Our Experience. As I mentioned in the first paragraph, my family and I recently took a small trip to Chiang Mai. I have to say, although the drive may seem long it is definitely worth going to Chiang Mai. The city of Chiang Mai is one of the biggest and well known city’s in Thailand. And although the city is ginormous, it is extremely quiet. Due to COVID-19 not many tourists have been coming to Chiang Mai making it much less busy, meaning that if you do decide to go there is less chance you will come in contact with COVID-19. Even though the empty streets are a good thing in some cases, if you decide to visit you have to be prepared to walk a long or short distance just to get a meal. But even though there may be a few minor setbacks, I personally think it is still worth going.

What You Can Do There. After reading that last paragraph you’re probably thinking ‘Why should I visit if everything’s closed?’ Well, not EVERYTHING is closed. There are still some places you can go with the family or maybe you could book the kids in for some activities. Either way, here’s my opinion on places you can go in Chiang Mai.

Temples. Temples are a very popular tourist attraction all around Thailand and I think you would be happy to know that most of Chiang Mai’s temples are still open! Temples are a place you can take the whole family to. For those of you who like photography then I would definitely recommend taking a camera to a temple. There are so many unique photo opportunities. My father is a very skilled photographer and has taken photos at lost of temples around Chiang Mai. He believes the temple where you can get some great shots, is a temple named Doi Suthep. Doi Suthep is a temple high in the mountains and it overlooks the whole of Chiang Mai, allowing you to get stunning photos of the beautiful cityscape from above.

Summer Camps
An activity that is available during the hot, summer season, are Summer Camps. You can research the different types of camps and choose one that suits your needs. There are lots of different types of camps and they start from the age of 4. You can get adventure camps, animal camps, sport camps and IT camps. My brother and I are trying out a farm camp in the next few weeks. I will write a post about it with some more details.

Shopping Centres
Shopping Centres are places, that even with Covid 19 restrictions, seem to be always open. Although, some attractions in the shopping centres may be closed (like ice-skating), most of the shops are still open. My family and I quite enjoy a little shop and we love exploring the malls in Chiang Mai. We especially recommend Central Airport Plaza as it has a variety of shops and restaurants for all different tastes. The other malls are Maya and Central Festival. They are all worth a visit, especially when other tourist options are closed due to Covid 19!

Travel Essentials For Kids

If you are thinking about booking a trip a nice vacation spot but have never been before and are wondering about what to bring then you’re in luck. In this blog post I will tell you what you should bring if you’re planning on taking a vacation.

  1. 2.

Must Have Items For Beach Vacation. A common choice for a holiday spot, is the beach. Most kids adore beaches and will spend hours playing there. Here are some things you might need at the beach:

1. Sunscreen! When the kids are playing out in the sun it is quite likely that they will get sunburnt due to the heat. But if you make sure to apply sunscreen every hour or two it will decrease the chance of that happening, so the kids can have a sunburn free holiday. If you are planning on swimming for long time, I personally would recommend waterproof sunscreen. It tends to stay on longer than usual sunscreen. Being sunburnt is not fun, so go for prevention rather than experience!

2. Rashes (swim-tops) This is another way to prevent sunburn for kids that is quite common, Rashies! For those of you who do not know about rashies, is it is basically a swim-top. They come in long sleeve or short sleeve but either way they are very useful. You can just slip them on or over the children’s swim suits and they are good to go! My brother and I almost always wear rashies when swimming, the result? We barely ever get sunburnt when swimming! So I would suggest buying one for your child if you plan on swimming.

3. A bottle of water. Although it is quite simple, I think taking water almost everywhere you go is a great idea because it is very common for kids to get thirsty. You can take usually one water bottle, but if you are going on a long trip or plan on spending the entire day somewhere it’s a bit different. It might be better if everyone takes their own water supply. Sometimes running out of water can be a problem and the kids can get dehydrated and start having headaches or tummy troubles. My family and I don’t take water bottles everywhere though. If you are just planning on spending an hour or two somewhere then you will most likely not need to take a water bottle. I think taking water on long trips mainly is just a good idea since it so often happens that a child or children end up sick due to dehydration. 3. 4.

Airport Must Haves. Unfortunately to kids, airports are boring old buildings…with almost nothing to do. For lots of kids it’s natural for them to run amuck at the airport! With nothing to do they can be really annoying and sometimes with siblings they even end up irritating each other. Well these essentials are going to stop (or at least temporarily get rid of ) this sometimes frustrating behaviour.

1. Sliding puzzles Now, the kids have had enough screen time for one day so they shouldn’t be allowed to play on devices again today. What else could we do though? Well the answer is simple! Sliding puzzles are the key! These helpful play toys are a type of portable puzzle that come in pictures or numbers. The objective of the puzzle is …you guessed it! To solve the puzzle and order the numbers or fix the picture. Sliding puzzles are for boys and girls and also come in many different shapes and sizes. You can get pictures, numbers and sometimes even letters in the sliding puzzles. My brother and I use sliding puzzles not only at airports but quite often besides that as well. You can get the sliding puzzles to fit your skill base by getting them in different shapes and sizes too. I believe sliding puzzles can solve the problem of annoying kids at the airport and can help to make the trip there a little bit easier and more enjoyable for both kids and adults.

2.Chewy Lollies and other treats… Something that my brother and I always like to have in the plane or at the airport is some chewy lollies, gum and other sorts of sweet treats. I think if you are on a plane, then gum is the best option since when planes take off your ears can get blocked easily. If you want to stop this from happening to you or your child then gum can help. If you chew the gum whilst taking off, the chance of getting your ears blocked decreases. Personally, I like to use chewing gum when this happens but lollies like mentos also work well too.

3. A Handbag Or Small Backpack Now the kids have their suitcases packed and ready. The flight is just about to take off but you hear the sounds slowly coming out of their mouth… “Muum!, Daad!”Please don’t tell me… you think in your head. “Can you get my toy out of the suitcase please? I need something to do!” You sigh, here we go again… Is anyone familiar with this scenario? Of course you are! Well this essential is going to help and fix this annoying problem. All your child needs is handbag or a small backpack. You don’t need to pack any clothes or anything important in the backpack. All you need are some toys, accessories and books for the child to play with. With this essential item, you will never have the annoying boredom problem again! 5. 6. 7.

3 Best Ideas For A Fun Family Outing.

In this post I am going to give you three great ideas for fun outings with your family and sometimes even friends too!

3# Cafe or Restaurant. This sort of outings is commonly used by families all over the world. All you have to do is take the whole family to a nice cafe or restaurant for dinner lunch or breakfast… whatever is easiest! This sort of outing is very easy and simple. So simple in fact, that when my family and I were living in Australia we went to the local cafe almost every morning! I think visiting a cafe and/ or restaurant with your family is a really fun and nice experience. My family and I also visit restaurants together but most of the time that is only on special occasions or celebrations. if you are planning on visiting a cafe or restaurant with a small child then I would suggest bringing a colouring book and crayons or some other form of entertainment with you. Some young children can get easily bored when there is nothing to do and bringing these things with you can be a life saver. When by brother, Eddie, and I were little we used to bring colouring books and pencils everywhere we went because when the adults were talking and we were waiting for our food and drinks we would get extremely bored luckily when we had our colouring books we became entertained and happy. Then we could wait for our drinks and food without having to be bored and annoying to the adults. 1.

2# A Zoo Or Theme Park Another very common thing that families often do together is going to a theme park or a zoo for a day. The kids love doing this because its very energetic and fun. My brother and I have only been to about one or two theme pars in our life but from the previous experiences we have had with them it is defiantly worth going. Zoos are a more common place where my family and I have visited a few more times the we have visited a theme park! I think that when you have small children zoos are much easier and better to go to beside a theme park. When you have young children it quite often seems to happen that the child or children are much to young or short to go on barely any of the theme park rides. As well as this the child may get bored and wander off. In this case big theme parks are a problem as the child or children could get lost or even hurt. So in my opinion a zoo is a much better place to take younger children then a theme park. As for older kids…its a bit of a different story! Older kids at around the age of 12 or thirteen and older are known to get awfully bored whilst looking at animals in zoos. They will most likely spend most of the trip on their phones texting or playing video games. I think for older children especially a theme park is a very good place for them to have some fun. The first reason I think theme parks are better suited for older kids is that they should be tall enough to go on all the rides they like without worrying about breaking the rules or not being allowed due to their height or age. I also believe a theme park is great place for older children because they will not be able to use their phones unless they want to potentially lose them. This way the children with talk and interact with the rest of the family which is much better then having them on their phone all day. 2. 3.

1# Pools and Beaches This is the number one best and most popular family outing that I believe is the best thing to do together on the holidays or weekend. Going to the pool or beach is something that ALL kids of every age love to do. Whether they prefer staying on the waters edge building sand castles at the beach or sun-baking at the pool or if they want to go in the water and go swimming or at the beach even surfing. This activity also solves the problem of teens and their phones and or devices. At the beach LOTS of things are able to break these devices like sand, water, over heating and others. So I wouldn’t suggest bringing a phone and or any other kind of device near the waters edge! Little kids also love the beach and pools because for them there is so much to do! They can look in rock pools, go swimming in the shallow waters, give surfing a shot, try out their luck on a boogie board, play with diving toys in the pool, have a go on the pool floaties and HEAPS MORE!!! There are so many possibilities and so much fun to be had that some people don’t even know what to do first. The last thing that you need to know if you are planning on taking a trip to the beach or pool then you NEED some sunscreen. My family and I always need sunscreen because in sunny places like at a beach or at a pool it is normally very, very hot. Sunscreen will save your skin so don’t forget to pack it! 4. 5.

Reasons Why You Should Get A Pet

Now I’m pretty sure everyone in the world has asked for a pet at least once before. Whether you were a little kid or maybe your a grown adult! Everyone has asked to get a pet. I know that most parents certainly won’t be very keen on this idea, but in this post I am going to give you lots reasons why you should get a pet.

Best Friends Forever… Everyone has felt lonely and sad at least once in their life. Whether its when you’re at school or when you’re at work feeling lonely is sometimes part of life. There is a simple solution to this problem…you guessed it, getting a pet! Although dogs are among the most popular pets to have as a companion, it isn’t the only pet that cures loneliness. It could be any pet like a cat or a bird. Pets are the perfect friend. If your child is lonely at school or seems to be sad, then the perfect birthday present is a pet. If you’re child is only little then I would suggest a fish as a pet. Although they do not cuddle or make noise, they can still help by relaxing the child and giving them something to do once in a while. Another reason pets are the perfect friend is that they cannot do things like gossip or spread rumours! Even though they cannot do this, some people still tell their pets their biggest secrets.

Keeping Active. Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, you may have noticed that kids are not going outside much and instead are playing video games and watching TV. If you live with a child or children, then you will especially notice the kids strange behaviour. If you wish to stop them playing games and watching silly shows, then getting a pet is just the way to do it! Especially with dogs, pets need exercise and need to have at least one walk per day. If you want to kick the kids outside but haven’t really got a good excuse, then a pet just the excuse you’ve been looking for! And if you still aren’t too keen on the whole dog idea, cats also need exercise. Give the kids a cat toy and kick them outside with the cat to play, this way the kids and the pets are getting their daily exercise making both of them healthier and stronger.

Life Lessons Have you ever told your child to do something like unload the dishwasher or take out the trash but have just been ignored? This seems to happen often since children these days do not seem to be very responsible. But a pet can teach the children to be responsible and helpful as they will have to clean up after the pet as well as doing things like: feeding them, looking after their living area and with certain animals even bathing them! Pets are very good with this sort of thing as they need many things to keep them healthy and happy. The child will be taught to be responsible and if they do the jobs well they will most likely have a very good looking pet! As well as teaching children to be responsible pets teach many other lessons such as: Trust, respect, patience and many, many more.
