Kindergartners are receiving more and more homework from school and are expected to know a certain set of sight words upon entering Kindergarten. The academic requirements for reading preparation now begin in Kindergarten. No longer do kindergartners play most of the day, instead they are required to do school work. This new academic outlook is surprising to some parents. Are we helping our children to develop academically or our we creating a wider gap in academic success? Does learning to read in Kindergarten help prepare you for 1st and 2nd grade literacy or are we creating a pool of 2nd and 3rd graders who don't meet the new standards? Our guest speaker the Director of Georgia Education Consulting will be here today to discuss that with you. Stay tuned

"What is MOPS?
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.
We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another.
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it's a little confusing so let's just stick with "MOPS."
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world." (http://www.mops.org/)

Host Jethro Smith and Dena Flanagan Topic Psychic Healing
Jethro Smith, part Native American Indian and part Dutch, was born psychically gifted and has always been able to see and hear metaphysical energies and the spirit realm. His gift was recognized and developed from an early age and enhanced after a near-death experience. He began in kindergarten reading his friends' auras, listening to their guides, angels and loved ones who had crossed over and communicating messages and future events.
Through his unique personal life and experiences from the other side, Jethro has developed a refreshing approach to both life and the afterlife. He is nonjudgmental, empathetic, and not easily taken by surprise. He is an exceptionally accurate reader with a sense of humor gleaned from the perspective of seeing the larger picture of life’s experiences.
Jethro Smith has been professionally reading for over thirty years and is registered in the World's Best and Most Trusted Psychics, Mediums and Healers 2012. He is the founder and host of the blog-talk radio Psychics Gone Wild.
Author of Living in the Psychic Realm, Jethro seeks to enable others to understand the sixth sense. Written through the eyes of an eight-year-old, it is a must-read for anyone growing up "different,” and it easily serves as a how-to manual on developing one's own psychic skills.
