“Listen Up, Kids!” talks MJ, Skylanders and Power Rangers

Listen Up, Kids!

I am not a sports fan at all.

So when Deandre told me he wanted to talk about Michael Jordan, all I could remember about him were the Hanes ads. But Deandre did a great job explaining M.J.’s career and his awards.  Devin talked about the different Power Rangers and their colors and what they do to make the world a better place.  Luke talked about his recently acquired Skylander Trap Team game and the figures.  He has already beat Chaos but he needs a rap to contain him!

The secret word of the day was “ball” so we went nuts every time the word was mentioned.  Deandre said it many times during his segment.

The book we read this week was “Froggy’s Halloween” by Jonathan London.  This week, Luke and Deandre took turns reading from the book.  We got hysterical when Froggy said,

“Trick or treat, smell my feet.  Give me something good to eat.  If you don’t, I don’t care.  I’ll pull down your underwear!”

Gotta love the Froggy books!

We also mentioned some Halloween Safety Tips which can be found here.

Walk Safely

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to
    the left as possible.  Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
  • Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Trick or Treat With an Adult

  • Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups

Until next time…
