Learning Toys at the Bookstore ( Momimhar posted on March 16th, 2017 )

It’s been a while since we gone out to the mall.  My daughter thought of going to Firewheel Town Center today since it’s her Spring Break. She wanted to go to Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Besides children’s books, she also finds nice learning tools and kids’ toys there.

Guest Reader Today ( Momimhar posted on February 28th, 2017 )

I was a guest reader in K’s class yesterday.

In participation with the Read Across America Campaign week, K’s school PTO asked parents if we’re able to come to the school and read to the students or listen to them read.  I came to her school yesterday and read a book to two First Grader students and to K’s class.

It was a great feeling to be able to share a little time reading to the children and see them interact and share their reactions about the story I read to them.

Learning How To Use Technology At The Library ( Momimhar posted on January 28th, 2017 )

Checking for books.

If I remember it right, this is the second time K and I visited our local library since the school started in August.  We couldn’t attend the Story Time for All Ages on Tuesday evenings because our bedtime is around 7:00 P.M.  and the story time is scheduled at 6:30 P.M.  The story time on Wednesdays and Fridays are for toddlers and are scheduled during school hours. So obviously we’re not able to go as well.

This afternoon we got the chance to go to the library because K wanted to borrow DVDs. We have a collection of kids’ movies on DVDs at home but it gets boring, you know.  She enjoys being at the library.  She reads a few books. Sometimes  I read to her. What fascinated her most was searching for books and DVDs at the computer kiosk.  When K started to try using the computer kiosk, she used a step stool to reach the keyboard.  Now, she doesn’t have to use one anymore.  She can reach the computer keyboard and she’s very happy about that. This way K will know if her favorite books like Pete the Cat and Hippoposites and DVDs like Kubo and My Neighbor Totoro are IN or OUT.  The library is one of the places to take your children for learning and reading.  There are activities and special events for kids’ according to age and interest that local libraries organize all the time.

I need to allot more library time on the weekends.  As for the story time, we will catch up on that in the summer.  We always participate in the Summer Reading Club.

The 3 Essentials of Powerpoint Presentations ( Momimhar posted on March 1st, 2016 )

PowerPoint presentations are essential to many businesses. They’re used to deliver information, make proposals, and train employees. The success of a new business deal can depend on it, and the competency of a new hire can suffer from it. With how important it is, every presenter should be aware of three essential parts of a PowerPoint presentation.

Message

The message is the point of the presentation. Why is it there? What is the viewer going to get from seeing it? A presentation without a well-defined message is just a pretty dumping ground for information. Everything in a presentation works together to clarify the message, but all those other things have no form without a unifying message.

Content

Your content is all the little facts and figures used to deliver your message. With the message, you’re making a claim. With the content, you’re backing it up. The content includes facts, numbers, statistics, charts and graphs. You need to separate that information, group it into the appropriate slide, and arrange it in a logical way. It sounds simple, but this can be a complicated, stressful and time-consuming task. If content is your second step, you’ll end up with well-organized information on boring slides. That’s where design comes in.

Design

The design is how you present your content and message. This incorporates things like text, size, images, and layouts. Things with different messages can have different styles. For example, a presentation on company figures might have blue tones and clear lines while family services training might include brighter colors and personable photographs. You have to create a design that fits the tone and audience of your message. You also have to figure out how best to make your content work with the design when considering the essential images and the available space. For non-designers, this can be the hardest step. There are companies out there that offer custom PowerPoint design so that the client only needs to supply the message and content.

Message, content, and design are three different points to remember, but they work together. Give each area equal attention. If you’re working with a partner or design company, make sure your ideas are in sync. If you manage that, you can get the interested and receptive audience you want.
