Well September is Back to School and boy have we been prepping in my house. Memorizing bus stop names, setting up home work stations, getting into new bed time routines and more. Back to School brings structure and routine back to our house and gone are the days, weeks, months of no exact bed time, free for alls and tv with breakfast. I have been trying to ease both kids back into the learning mode. To get their brains boosted and back into thinking mode and not just swimming mode.
To prep for back to school learning I started to refocus on the subjects both Hayley and Derek like. The number one favorite in our house is SCIENCE!! Both love science, want to do experiments all the time, figure out cures for their toys ailments and learn about space, the sea, the human body and more. One of Derek’s absolute favorite books is his SUPER SHARKS ENCYCLOPEDIA by DK Children. We read different facts from this book all the time. Derek loves to just sit around and look at the pictures too!
Since I work for a scientist, both kids are always asking me to bring home “science stuff” and in an effort to get them back in the school swing I have been bringing home lots of test tubes, syringes, gloves, masks and more and giving it to the kids with water, salt, food coloring and whatever is around. They LOVE creating their own science experiments.
To boost Hayley’s love of problem solving she got to check out the super cool A.D.I.S.N. Journal: With A.D.I.S.N (Advanced Digital Intelligence Spy Notebook). The Journal helps Hayley transform into a super top secret spy and go on missions to solve our family super secrets. She is obsessed with Project Mc² the new Netflix Original Series, that features four supercool teen spies who show how girls can use their science smarts and math problem-solving skills to save the world.
It appears Ne R Dy is the new COOL and Hayley’s new bracelet doubles as a secret key to open up her spy notebook.
You can image the amount of times Hayley has opened and closed her notebook!
While Hayley and Derek are busy “doing science” or on a “spy mission” Hayley is taking notes and now mimicking her new favorite characters from Project Mc². I love that she finally has some super smart, super cool girls that solve problems to look up and watch on tv. Showing Hayley that not all scientists are boys and it’s cool to be smart!!!
Catch a first look of Project Mc² here.
