  • Time to Play: My Favorite No-Battery Toys for Kids

    By Serena Norr

    In our heavy tech-loving world it may seem like the only toys out there make a buzzing or a beeping sound. With two kids ages 5 and 22 months, it has been incredible to see just how quickly they gravitate (and understand) tech. While I appreciate its many benefits, I try not to rely on it for everything related to education and discovery. Some of my kids' favorite toys are those that actually don't talk, buzz, or beep, but rather they are those that have no batteries and focus on building everything from hand-eye coordination to literacy to imaginative play and so much more.

  • Time to Play: Making Math Fun!

    By Nancy Johnson Horn

    Did you like math growing up? I absolutely hated it. I didn't start liking it until I started teaching it to 2nd graders in East Harlem. I didn't want my students to dislike it, so I found ways to make it fun. As a mom with two elementary school-aged children, I try to make it fun for them, too. Whether it's for math homework or playtime, you can make it fun, too! […]

  • Time to Play: Being Girly is OK

    By Yolanda Machado

    Growing up in the '90s meant a lot of things. It was a time of grunge, it was a time where things started getting more open, and it was a time where women began to shed being "girly" and opted more for being one of the guys. Being overly feminine at the time was often looked down upon and seen as going a step backwards for the feminist movement (even though my 15-year-old self had no idea what being a feminist meant). I held onto this ideal well into adulthood, and when I became pregnant with my daughter, I was determined to keep my "non-girly" ideals intact. […]
