HUNTINGTON LEARNING CENTER- SMITHTOWN

Have you visited a Huntington Learning Center?

 

“For more than 40 years, Huntington Learning Center has offered several different types of tutoring programs for children ages 6-17—including reading, writing, math, study skills, spelling, phonics, ADHD, Common Core, and test prep for ACT and SAT to name a few. Their mission is to give every student the best education possible and realize “I can” when it comes to school success.”
We recently visited the Smithtown location and had such a wonderful experience. My husband and I want my daughter to be more confident in herself and in her schoolwork. We know she can do it and we want her to know she can do it, too. I want her to love learning and not get frustrated whether she is at school doing her work or at home with us when she is doing her homework after school or just reading a new book.

Great Papa Turns 90!

Our lives from birth are filled with those around us who influence us, love us, and help raise us. The people who inspire us can be any age and can hold a special place in our hearts. 

I feel grandparents and great grandparents have very significant roles in children’s lives. It is a love that can be indescribable at times. Children look to their grandparents for not only love, but for wisdom and confidence to be themselves. I was very blessed to of known my grandparents but, I lost them at a young age. I have very fond memories of them and cherish those memories very much. I am sad that my girls have never met my grandparents because they would of loved them but, they are blessed to have two sets of amazing grandparents and two amazing sets of great grandparents on my husband’s side. Their grandparents and great grandparents cherish them and the feeling is very mutual. I see their excitement when I mention any of their names and it warms my heart. Everyone teases I take so many pictures and I do this so that our family can look back and enjoy the moments we have spent together.

Pillowland by Laurie Berkner

Do you love Laurie Berkner as much as we do?

We love watching her you-tube channel and singing and dancing to her music (whether we are at home or driving in our car). But, did you know that Laurie has a couple of children’s books out, too?

We are the Dinosaurs was our first children’s book by Laurie Berkner and now we are enjoying the adorable story, Pillowland. What we love about Pillowland is that it is a whimsical adventure story with a soothing and relaxing tone. We love pretending “we are riding a pillow train… Choo Choo!”  A perfect bedtime story. It is one of our new favorites and I think it would be one of your new bedtime favorites, too.
