Better Together!

Happy Math and Music Monday!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Can you believe it’s already April!? I can’t. This year has gone by so very fast. It’s mind-boggling that this month we will release our 12th Math and Music Video/Activities. I feel extremely blessed to get to share these videos and activities with you. I LOVE working with our amazing team of people that make these videos happen! And I am so grateful that I get to do these videos/activities with our girls. We are having so much fun and the best part is they are LEARNING! They are taking the concepts we cover in the videos/activities and applying them to their everyday life, most of the time, completely on their own! I hope you’re experiencing this in your home too. If you’re not, don’t worry… keep doing what you are doing and it will happen!

Fun Fact

“We are Better Together!” – erin hines

I felt this was the perfect saying/quote for this week because these are the very words that came to me when thinking about this week and the goal behind this blog.  It’s so true. We are “Better Together!” Our families are better together. Our classrooms are better together. And our Ally Dog Depot community is Better Together! When we work together and share our ideas, our experiences and our stories, we are BETTER TOGETHER! This is exactly why I do what I do. I want to be an encouraging voice to all parents/caring grown-ups out there. It IS possible to make Math and Music and Learning a part of your everyday lives and interactions with the special children in your life.

This week is the “Week of the Young Child!” It’s designed to “celebrate early learning, young children and their teachers, families and communities.” –NAEYC

As you know, young children, their teachers, families and their communities are SUPER important to me! So make sure to enjoy this week and take time to say THANK YOU to all the important people in your young child’s life!

I hope you will also be inspired by the photos and stories below to share Ally Dog Depot with your friends and family this week. Please think of one more person or friend (right now) that isn’t using our resources and share it with them. We can’t do it without you and your support. We are BETTER TOGETHER!
