The daily, two-minute video arrives each weekday morning in your email inbox. Each video shows a math, language arts, or vocabulary activity in English or Spanish that you can do with your child. These two-minute activities are simple, easy, fun and help you connect to and build on your child's learning. You and your child can do the activities at home, at the grocery store, at the park, or on the go.
EatPlayGrow recently finished a series of 12 workshops that taught families about healthier habits using books, art, music and key messages to help children become healthier as they grow. Nearly 100 parents and children were reached over the 12-week period.

During their last workshop, students at Logan Community Child Development Center made pillows and learned about healthy sleeping habits.

Research shows that reading comprehension in ELL students gets a boost when kids are exposed to culturally relevant books. "Story is both individual and collective," says Candis Grover, director of literacy and Spanish development at ReadyRosie, an educational web site.

The new research is the first to ever take a look at family structure routines and health outcomes in their preteen years.
