    I would say the use of technology needs to be limited like television, video games, reading, etc. Too much of something will eventually take its toll. The part of the article that stood out the most to me was where it said that younger siblings have strain on their eyes because of too much technology use. As a previous kindergarten teacher for 8 years, skills like coloring, writing, cutting are essential to the development of children. We have muscles in our hands and when we’re little, those muscles have to be strengthened. With coloring, writing, and cutting, the muscles in a child’s hand become stronger and they develop more coordination. I would like to see more children coloring and writing while waiting in the Dr.’s office, in church, in the car than playing on an electronic device. I love technology, but I think it should be used in moderation.

    I think it’s important to teach students to be “Career Ready”! Students are having trouble creating Word documents to type research papers, they cannot type, spell, and some cannot even write in cursive. I feel it’s important to bring back teaching these skills. Students are graduating from high school not knowing how to effectively do these important skills!

    When I taught Kindergarten, I always took my students to Lexington to a pumpkin patch. This was always a challenge because we had to fundraise the monies needed for bus travel, food for the students, admission to the event, etc. After traveling 3 hours to get to Lexington, the kiddos couldn’t spend much time at all enjoying the pumpkin patch because we had such a long way to travel back home…Needless to say, by the end of the day we were all exhausted…but we all had pumpkins, apple cider, and doughnuts!
