Parent & Teacher Communication Made Easier

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of StartSomeGood. All opinions are 100% mine.

Okay, so my background is in education. I actually taught high school in Fayetteville. One thing I could always remember was trying to reach out to the parents of my students so they knew what was going on in class. As an educator, parental involvement is key to have a smooth year with your students. It seems as kids get older more parents stop staying as involved. Often it feels as if you are left alone with the students without the help of the parents to further their children's education.

Now as my daughter approaches her pre-K year, I am actively involved with her class and constantly asking the teachers for feedback about her day, her lessons, progress, etc. I hate being THAT parent, but she is my daughter and I want to make sure they know there is open communication in case there is ever a need from me. I never know how much of a bug I am being when I am always asking. Sometimes though it would be nice to have an effective way to get meaningful feedback from our teachers without bugging them constantly.

So, imagine my intrigue when I read about Dash -- an iPhone app (Android app coming soon) designed for teachers to track meaningful contact with their students' parents. Dash has already raised over $3,000 on StartSomeGood -- a crowdsourcing site where you can go support your favorite cause, product, or campaign to help bring amazing ideas and businesses to reality.

Stop by and check out Dash. How easy is it for you to talk to your ked's teachers? Would you benefit from an app like this?

Spring is in Bloom with Miracle-Gro Expand 'n Gro Concentrated Planting Mix

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.
I love the spring time! Warm weather. Longer days. And the annual ritual of planting my flowers and herbs. An herb garden is my all time favorite to plan each year. So, this weekend we hit up the local store for some pots, soil, and herbs to get our garden started. Just before this annually anticipated trip, I learned of a new project from Miracle Gro, Its called Expand ‘n Gro™.
EnG Product Shot.pngExpand ‘n Gro™ is a concentrated planting mix that touts 3x more flowers and vegetables than native soil. It is combines both plant food with a coconut coir fiber. Expand ‘n Gro™ works by locking in more moisture than your basic potting soils using absorbent coir fibers to ensure the water is used efficiently. The plant food in Expand ‘n Gro™ helps to feed your plants up to 6 months! When tilling this mix into your native soil, it can help by creating more air space. The result is more workable native soil with better water holding ability. So, it can really be used for your potted plants or in your garden to improve your native soil.
Check out this video!
So for me, I am going to try Expand ‘n Gro™ in my herb garden this year to produce a more bountiful herb crop this year for some of my husband's favorite recipes. And when I get my annual flower potted later this season, I will be sure to use Expand ‘n Gro™ to keep them happy, healthy, beautiful, and watered throughout the spring and summer seasons.
