Do You Pay It Forward?

Standard

During the past year, I’ve connected with many wonderful writers and authors in blog sphere who inspire and encourage me.

Today, I’d like to pay it forward and help Vivian Kirkfield, teacher and author, promote her new book.

Show Me How!

“Show Me How!” will appeal to home school mom’s. And of course to mom’s with children attending main stream schools.

I’m also reblogging Vivian’s post. Take it away Vivian.

The school bells are already ringing, announcing the start of a new school year.

Here at Positive Parental Participation, we are joining the celebration.

We believe that building self-esteem is of critical importance. Do you?

Studies show that children with a positive self-image:

Are more likely to take on new challenges
Have greater school success
Make friends more easily
Do not become bullies or the victims of bullies

Many children are in school for eight hours a day. Little ones in daycare facilities while their parents are working may be there for even longer periods of time.

Isn’t it important for teachers and other child-care providers to have the best resources available to succeed in this important task?

“SHOW ME HOW!”

BUILD YOUR CHILD’S SELF-ESTEEM THROUGH READING,

CRAFTING AND COOKING

Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking

Not only an award-winning parenting resource…it’s also a wonderful addition to any classroom bookshelf.

“It will be an excellent resource for our Family Literacy Center’s programs” – Rhonda Cooper, Program Director, Literacy Volunteers of Leon County, FL

Many local teachers have purchased their own copy to place in their classrooms…there is even a copy on the shelves of the teacher-education department at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

“We will add it to our collection in support of our Educational Studies Program.” – Celia Rabinowitz, Director of the Library, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Show Me How! is a book that every nursery school, preschool, kindergarten, first grade, KinderCare and other daycare facility needs to have for their teachers.

“It is a great tool to help our children become successful.” – Mary Newquist, Assistant Principal, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School, Selma, TX

“Show Me How!” is a framework of carefully crafted, multi-sensory lessons that will promote a willingness to try new experiences.” – Peggy Hicks, MA, Special Education Teacher, Pikes Peak Boces, CO.

What school would you like to see receive a copy of Show Me How?

If you’d like your favorite school to win a copy, just leave a comment on any blog post at Positive Parental Participation this month.

On September 8th, National Literacy Day, Vivian will announce the twelve lucky winners.

“This book is an incredible resource for fostering a child’s sense of self-worth.” – Jodi Harap, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Chicago, IL

EVERYONE IS ELIGIBLE TO NOMINATE A SCHOOL OR CHILDCARE FACILITY!

So hop over to Positive Parental Participation for more ideas on how to be a positive role model.

I’ll be back later to post my Week 5, Summer Short & Sweet challenge.

  1. WOW! Thank you so much, Tracy! What a lovely thing for you to do. 🙂 I’ll be extending the close of nominations to the end of September…I realized that lots of people are away…or away from blogging until the end of August…so that gives folks a few more weeks.
