Avoid this summer slide...

Michele Lepe

Have you heard of the dreaded 'Summer Slide' before? I'm NOT talking about the slide  your kids want to play on this summer! Many children, especially early and/or struggling readers, lose a lot of progress they may have made during the school year if they don't read over the summer break.  They may 'slide' out of practice and find it even more challenging to get back to where they were during the previous school year.  Pretty much every expert recommends that parents prioritize reading as a summertime activity. So let's do it together!

I found this very informative article from Scholastic with 3 tips to prevent the summer slide:

  1. Reading just 6 books over the summer could (click blog post title to continue reading)

Story Time Book Club!

Michele Lepe

Hello everyone! Looking to motivate your kids to keep reading through the summer? I am too, so I've decided to launch a kids book club on Facebook (Story Time With Michele - Book Club) and, in collaboration with Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), I'll have a suggested summer reading list for all of your PreK - Grade 3 readers. Beginning June 4, week by week I'll post a video of each book read aloud. If you can't find the book at your library or book shop, no need to worry as I will also include subtitles on the videos so that your child can read along with me!

Happy Mother's Day - Feliz día de las Madres

Michele Lepe

It's Mother's Day and I want to send some special love to all the mamas out there working hard for their families and raising healthy, bright children! Just wanted to say that I think you're doing a great job :)

I'd like to share a special little tribute to my mom, too. She has battled breast cancer twice and is very lucky to now celebrate 5 years cancer-free.

Let's Party (Moana style!)

Michele Lepe

As a mom of 2 girls whose birthdays are within 5 days of each other I am fully committed to throwing only 1 birthday party for the both of them. We'll see how long they let me get away with that! Last birthday theme was unanimous: Moana! Thankfully, it's pretty easy to locate and create 'luau' styled decorations so it was really up to me how far I was willing to take it...which was pretty far! I don't know who gets more excited about putting together a party, them or me!  (Click blog title to read more!)

Love to Read!

Michele Lepe

Hi everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted but I’M BACK! And I’m super excited to share my latest project, Story Time With Michele! I’ve had so many fans reach out to me over the past year recounting special, touching family memories involving The Good Night Show. Thank you for continuing to share those stories with me. Sadly, I can’t bring the show back since it was never mine in the first place. I have, however, figured out a way to stay connected to children in a meaningful way.  The Story Time channel on Youtube is my first attempt at creating something, on my very own, for kids.
