Top 5: Holiday Movie Night (kids edition)

From the Winter Solstice springs a plethora of holiday celebrations and here in Canada we’re pretty much all in from November 1st (somber moment on the 11th for Remembrance Day not withstanding). The snow has already started falling (intermittently) in most provinces, and the temperature is dropping quick. Movie nights are a great way to…

Top 5: Halloween Movie Night

Plans are dicey this year. Let’s not pretend that it’s going to be a normal Halloween. Trick or Treating will be off the table in a lot of communities and parties are pretty much a hard no. That doesn’t mean Halloween is cancelled. Halloween is a state of mind, folks. It ain’t going nowhere! So…

A solid Book Report can encourage reading comprehension, help understand broad concepts, and help a child learn about different story elements. That being said, they can also be a source of frustration for children which, in turn, can make them not want to read at all. I am very pro-reading for pleasure when it comes…

Carib Collection: Social Studies Worksheets

When I read this quote from Dr. Best it really resonated with me. Growing up I don’t remember really learning Black Canadian history in school. Sure, there were mentions of slavery, the Underground Railroad, and a handful of (mostly) American historical figures, but I don’t remember anything about Africville, about Dr. Best, about Viola Desmond.…

Top 5: Family Self Care

Self Care is starting to become a loaded phrase. Beautiful Insta feeds and curated blog posts would have you believe that Self Care is only for the rich. That if you can’t afford lavish “girls weekends” and spa days you aren’t doing it right. Another growing misconception is that the only way to care for…
