MSN Homeroom/Mini-Wheats Blog Tour

Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats sponsored the development of the MSN Mom's Homeroom site where Moms can connect online to find ideas and articles on topics such as reading, attentiveness, learning, and memory. The site features four Moms from diverse backgrounds: a teacher, a psychiatrist, a former marketing coordinator, and an obstetrician /gynecologist. The Moms participate in online discussions and post unscripted videos of their views on helping kids succeed academically.

The site includes great resources such as:

  • Scholastic and Encarta articles, tools, and activities
  • Tips on reading comprehension
  • Ways to work with your child's sports coach
  • Articles on the meaning and importance of community service
  • Memory tricks to help kids in school

I have read over this site and found some helpful ideas! One of them for example was helping your child ace the next spelling test. My daughter is home schooled and I believe in testing. I feel it is very important. The MSN Mom's Homeroom site gave some great ideas to try out! More articles I found interesting is how to have a successful reader. I am glad I learned about this site and look forward to learning more.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

It's a great website for everyone, even those of us who's kids are grown up already, because they still call for advise... Mine are 18 & 21 and still look to mom when they have questions, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Thanks for the review.
BTW - Mini-wheats are one of my faves... I wish they still made the vanilla flavor!!

My friend and I were recently discussing about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about all the time.
