Christmas break is almost over, but the kids will still be in the house for a few more days. Northstar Elementary Principal John Keitges says that there are lots of ways to make sure your kids stay sharp without being overbearing. Keitges says teachable moments are available in everyday interaction with your children. He suggests something like tossing a ball at a target, with points assigned to how close the ball is to the target. Keitges also says that reading every day with your child is important, whether it be a book, magazine, or something else. Overall, he says to just relax and enjoy time with your children.
