Teacher Appreciation Week

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Honoring Teachers on May 4th - 8th!


It is hard to estimate the value of a good teacher on the lives of his or her students. Teachers touch so many lives, in so many ways.

Here are three reasons why I am thankful for educators:

  1. Most of their work goes unrecognized and unappreciated.
  2. They give selflessly of themselves and put the needs of their students first.
  3. They are wonderful, intelligent and loving people with an amazing calling on their lives!

Education has such an impact on ourselves and our little ones. Educents is here to help you pay it forward. In honor of Teacher Appreciation week, Educents & Peekapak have teamed up to provide your favorite educators with a gift basket worth over $40, which includes a FREE $10 Educents Gift Card & 3 months of Peekapak lesson plans (3 digital storybooks, 12 in-class lessons & 12 at-home activities) that teach Character Education and Language Arts.

So, whether it's your mom, your classroom teacher, your neighbors, or another special human being who taught you important lessons, thank them by giving them a FREE gift basket, on Educents!

Fill out the form here to send this freebie to an educator you know.

Books for Boys

Do you have a favorite book series for boys?  As a parent of three sons, I searched high and low for books that would encourage my sons to develop a sincere love of reading.  Here is an interesting blog article about 50 of the best books for boys.  

While my sons enjoyed many of these, their favorite series was the Sugar Creek Gang series by Paul Hutchins. This series was written in the 1940s and is wholesome and full of adventure for boys! Check out this blog post about the top 50 books for boys.

Check out a sample story on CD of the Sugar Creek Gang! You won't be disappointed! We got ours here for $3.95 and that is that is what got my sons hooked on this series!

Teaching Students with ADHD

For years, teachers have been trying to get kids to "sit still" to listen and learn. This is an almost impossible task for students with ADHD. New research is showing that these students need to squirm to learn. Check out the article here!
