OHS’s Favorite Things

There are times when I’m traveling around the city, I come across some amazing stores that have great resources for our children. I am a firm believer that as parents we are our children’s first teachers and every other teacher that comes into our child’s life is just to augment the foundation that we have already laid out. I believe that every resource that you ever need is right in front of  you. I found this to be particulary true when it comes to educational resources. My motto is if it’s not fun don’t buy it.  Here are a few of my favorite places where I found to have great toys, games, books,experiments and much, much more. Have fun and remember learning is about having fun and being engaged it should not be viewed as a chore or a punishment. If  you come across any resources that would benefit the larger community of parents and educators, please share and I will post it on my blog.
