Homeschooling Young Children? Here Are 5 Key Benefits to Adding a Good Art Program

Homeschooling your children? I assume this means you want the best for your kids. An opportunity to give your children a rich multi sensory, personalized type of education ……… Is art included in your curriculum?

If you want the best type of education for your children then ART must be included in your day to day curricular activities

When I say good art I am not talking about the standard traditional arts and crafts that is done in so many preschool and kindergarten classes all over the world. That may be something you do with your kids on a spur of the moment thought when a Holiday is coming up, or you need to make something for Grandma.

But that's not what I'm talking about.

Nope, you left that. You left that along with the traditional world of education because you wanted something better for your kids, something that they cant get in most traditional classes with upwards of 20 kids …..

You probably spend quite a bit of time looking for curriculum on line for your homeschooling curriculum and that's great because you get to choose what and how your kids will be learning.

You do not even realize how necessary and valuable it is for your kids to make sure that there is a solid art program being integrated with the rest of your homeschooling curriculum.

Many parents have some kind of vague ideas about why we give our kids art and some of its benefits.

Oftentimes traditional preschool teachers have just as vague ideas and below are some of the reasons I've heard from some traditional educators, preschool teachers as to why they give their students arts and crafts

  1. They need the children to remember their lessons and figure that an art project will help them do that
  2. They want them to learn to follow directions so they give them step by step directions on how to follow cookie cutter art projects
  3. They need to fill up time in the day, so what better way than an art project
  4. They claim that this is what the Mothers want

So tell me Moms, you are some of the mothers they are talking about (well maybe you're not actually really not since your kids are being schooled) but is this really what you want?

Do you want your kids to follow cookie cutter instructions that turn them into little robots for them to make projects that look exactly like everyone elses?

No! I did not think so.

But I do think that you may not know any alternatives and in working so hard trying to put together some good homeschooling curriculum for your children sometimes art gets lost in the shuffle and that's too bad.

That's too bad because art gives adds such depth to any curriculum that it would be a crying shame when you have the opportunity at home to give such great activities to have your children lose out on these experiences.

Art is not only fun, it's lifesaving and life building and I would like to share with you 5 reasons for you to include really good art into your homeschooling curriculum

  1. Art helps build physical coordination. Art is good for both gross motor coordination and fine motor coordination. Gross motor coordination, the development of large muscle is not only helped by things like ball playing and beam balancing but young children also use their arms during art with wide sweeping movements ans they paint and draw that help build those large muscle. Of course fine motor coordination is better understood as benefit ted from art .. Cutting, gluing, painting, drawing. Your child's small fingers are developing each time they use these art tools
  2. Emotional development – There is no question that art can help a child through many difficult emotional experiences. If a child is jealous of a new baby sibling, she or he can pound on some clay and color furiously instead of pounding on the baby herself. Children also end to use art to work through issues that bother them such as a death in the family, a fire or other disturbing event. (I once taught little girl who had a fire in her home and for weeks that's all she talked and drew and painted about until she calmed down.)
  3. Intellectual development (often known as cognitive development). Children learn to make sense of their world as they use art to count, classify, sort, make their own decisions and learn to follow directions without doing cookie cutter art.
  4. Creativity … Of course children's creativity takes a flying leap if they are allowed to do art that allows them to create at their own level, which allows them to be creative in more ways than one
  5. Integrating curriculum And last but not least art in a home school curriculum can help integrate the curriculum and help them learn. Children learn best through their senses and the more art is integrated with the homeschooling curriculum the more their learning will stay with them.

Internet Marketing – The Honest Truth

Lies! I tell You. If you really think that you can make money without doing any work you need to just quit right now. Do not waste any more of your time or energy, because you need to realize that if you want to compete with everyone else out there who's earning money online you've got to put in at least enough effort to keep up.

Maybe you've just got to find that nice little niche to dominate, maybe you've got to create a product so good that you have JV partners lining up to build your customer list. There are a ton of ways for you to achieve success online but do not fool yourself, it's going to take some work.

It's going to take some effort to promote anything, and sometimes trial and error to get it to work. You can not expect too much or you will want to give up. It's best to just set a small goal for yourself as far as promotion goes. Like you're going to write 1-5 articles a day, everyday, and submit them.

If you're not a writer outsource the work, but whatever you do just be consistent. Promote one thing until you see results, there are a ton of things you can do with articles and rss feeds to build links to your articles. Just like I've added the feeds of the many places I've published articles to my blog.

If you're not sure where to start it can be good to pick up a guide. However information overload is a common problem for people trying to start out in Internet Marketing. It's really easy to fill your head with information instead of your website. This is the wrong move! Sure you've got to learn some things, but it's not that much. It's all about putting whatever content you have gotten out there and seeing what kind of results you can get. The worst thing that happens is you fail, and learn.

Life goes on, some things do not work out as you might have hoped. You need to be able to take defeat and move on with it as a lesson of what not to do. If you fail at least try and learn something from the experience.

Consistent effort will pay off, just set yourself a reasonable goal and stick to it! You'll see profits in no time! Enjoy Your Success!

Powerful Domain Names – Announcing 6 Marvelous Ways to Impact Your Domain Names

Your domain name is an integral part of your ebusiness and plays crucial role in your marketing campaigns. It is through this name that your potential customers will remember you and the product you promote. That is why; it is very important that you give your website a name that is easy to remember so you can easily generate traffic and increase your sales potential.

1. Short vs. long. Typically, short website names promote easy recall. However, if your products and business are well-known in your industry, you can use them on your domain name regardless of how many characters they may require.

2. Insert relevant keywords. If you are selling iPods, you better include iPod on your domain name to make it search-engine friendly. Then, you can add adjectives which can best describe your products or your services.

3. Pick the best language. If you are targeting people who do not use English as their primary language, you can create a domain name using their local dialect. This will make your website name more appealing and targeted to your potential clients.

4. Never use trademarked names. This can result to online disputes or worst, legal actions. Check the words that you would like to use first and verify if they are already taken to avoid such dilemma.

5. Special characters: to use or not to use. I'd say, stay away from them as much as possible. Online users do engage using special characters when they search for website online and generally prefer typing alphanumeric symbols.

6. Solicit feedback. Ask for the opinions of domain name experts and possibly people from your target market before registering your desired website name. What may sound profitable for you may not even be appealing to your potential clients.

How Rigs for Water Wells Operate

To find new artesian wells, technology absolutely has to help us. With technical and mechanical innovations together with hydraulic engineering it has been possible to build rigs that are more and more efficient and are able to go to very important depths while drilling even more resistant layers of rocks. An artesian well is an under earth rich reserve of pluvial water: it is about natural resources that are hidden in the earth’s ground, the precious water supply of an area can be more or less extensive. The drilled hole of an artesian well lets water spontaneously come up to surface, without the use of submersible pumps. To find this underground water it is thought necessary to use a rig that is appropriate to our aim. Modern rigs, designed and realized by companies from this sector, are able to drill into the layers of the earth for many hundreds of meters. We are talking about mobile rigs, i.e. mounted on trucks or trailer either big or small depending upon the dimensions and weight of the equipment; this will let us move the rig inside the working yard without too many problems.

The choice of the correct rig to drill water wells is a choice of fundamental importance. Depending upon the well’s depth the rig will need to be more or less powerful. The best way to find the most appropriate rig is to trust and search the internet. You just need to open the browser on Google or Bing pages and type “drilling rigs for sale”. Over the world there are many companies that are operating in the sector of designing and realizing rigs. There are companies that are specialized in building rigs dedicated to water research. Others do have rigs to drill inside mines. Others specialize in oil exploration in the deepest layers of the earth from either marine platforms or on the mainland. There are also bigger companies that offer a wider range of drilling equipment. It is not always necessary to buy a new drilling rig. Most companies suggest and offer to their clients the option to hire and sell used rigs which can be recommended for small works when it’s not necessary to use equipment for a long period.

It is possible to find rigs that are fit for any purpose; it is though important to know that not all rigs are equal. For instance there are mechanical rigs which normally operate by diesel engines. There are electrical drilling rigs powered by energy sources generated in the work place, often they have engines with internal combustion. There are hydraulic drilling rigs that are using hydraulic oil flow operated by diesel engine. The system includes one gear box on which are connected different hydraulic pumps. Moreover modern rigs do differentiate themselves for their drilling method; these rigs can work a percussion system or rotary drilling method. The first ones impact the ground vertically drilling a large diameter hole in the ground; these rigs are mostly used when searching for water at low depths, but with very large diameter. Other types of drilling rigs instead, operate by rotating movement with a specific tool, normally called a bit.
