Hi everyone,
Gail has kindly agreed for me to write here and tell you about a new educational game I have created called Eco Warriors.
Eco Warriors - a new educational “Treasure Hunt” card game that motivates kids aged 6-12 to take care of the environment, their home and belongings. Children care deeply about protecting the environment but don’t always know how. With our new kit they will learn 20 ways they can care for it- at home.
The added “bonus” is that many of these actions also equip them with life skills that will benefit them (and you!) for life.
All items in the kit (including delivery) are eco-friendly and responsibly sourced.
10 flashcards with a different rhyme and super-action on each side.
“Treasure Hunt” clues for each of the cards
A reward chart plus stickers
Our premium set also includes a treasure chest plus seashells
Child & parent instructions
The game is sold on Etsy
Standard pack (£12): https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/731508812/eco-warriors-flash-cards-and-treasure
Premium pack which includes a treasure chest plus seashells (£18)
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/731486610/eco-warriors-luxury-pack-eco-friendly

Many thanks! Shiri Helpful Kids
This is really interesting stuff. Looking for my 6 year old .

Gail! We have come across one another before professionally - would be lovely to re-connect on FB - I am at Hampstead Dyslexia Clinic - book looks great!

“Noise can interrupt thinking processes and cause dispersion and frustration. To work properly, we all need quiet at times and to respect others by not interrupting them when they are thinking.”

From my book “100 things to learn before you’re 10”.

https://lessonsalive.com/a-100-things/

100 Things to Learn before you’re 10 draws on 40 years of teaching and life experience.

It answers a hundred questions or more from the best of that experience about the stages of core development and what a growing human needs.

“Just a Second” by Steve Jenkins is a really fun way to think and talk about time.

Did you know that in one second, a meteor entering Earth’s atmosphere can travel 44 miles (71 Kilometres)??! No, neither did I?!

Teach your 5-7-year-old to be a Brilliant Reader (and Love It!) - Lessons Alive

We can use books to teach essential learning skills as well as have fun!

📙 'Who’s Hiding?' by Satoru Onishi is great for memory training.

📗 Show your child that even after looking at something 13 or 14 times, they still cannot remember it all!

📕 This is a wonderful way to teach them about themselves and to encourage them to focus in school as well

📘 Children love this book and will enjoy ‘reading’ it with you and developing their memory skills.

Many naturally bright children develop low self-esteem, lack of confidence, frustration, boredom and more, because of disconnection or distance from the core of themselves.

It really doesn’t matter what nationality you are; the one thing everyone has in common, wherever we are in the world, whatever faith or lifestyle we adhere to, is that we are all HUMAN AT CORE.

You can find out more on my Human at Core website: https://www.humanatcore.com.

From “Through The Looking Glass”, sequel to “Alice in Wonderland”.

Did you know that in 1931, this book was banned by the Chinese governor of Hunan Province because “animals should not use human language and that is was disastrous to put animals and humans on the same level”?

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

A 100 Things - Lessons Alive

“In general, we tell children to ‘listen’ without explaining what that really means; we say they need to ‘concentrate’ without telling them how, in any way that is meaningful to them; so it is not what we say or teach that leaves a child’s development vulnerable to confusion. It is more often what we don’t say or do that leaves the way wide open to misunderstanding and misalignment.”

From my book “100 things to learn before you’re 10”.

100 Things to Learn before you’re 10 draws on 40 years of teaching and life experience.

Teach your 5-7-year-old to be a Brilliant Reader (and Love It!) - Lessons Alive

Want your child to have fun when reading?

📚 Keep a library of gorgeous activity books.

📗 'Where’s Wally?' is one they like!

📕 If that’s a little too busy for your 5-7 year old, try 'Where’s the Meerkat?' which is easier.

📘 Let your child know that when they look at one of the pages, they are training their brain to spot things that are very small.

📙 By telling them that they are 'training their brain' with each activity, they will intuitively know that this is useful!

The most critical time of each human life is the first twelve years when the framework for life is created. Children often feel as though they must ‘wait to grow up’ before they can DO anything during this time.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

Hello, I’m Gail Hugman

Contact me if you need help to motivate a child. I help children understand the learning process so they are empowered to be an enthusiastic and driven learner and stay at the top of the class!

Recent client testimonial:

Gail is not your typical 11+ tutor: she gets clear academic results while bypassing the traditional repetitive approach.

She starts her sessions explaining the children how their own brain works and how they can be in charge of their own future for example by planning their revision timeline. She really focuses on motivating the children, letting them identify their strengths and weaknesses and praising their improvements.
