Feed the Hungry While Learning for Free

My sons are playing vocabulary games from this site called FreeRice.com.  They love it.  At first they are only learning about vocabulary words, then Math.  They used to have only the vocabulary games on this site but now they also cover subjects like Art, Chemistry, English, Geography, Language Learning and Math.
Just look at how learning new vocabulary (and the other subjects) can benefit your kids:
  • Formulate ideas better
  • Write better papers, essays and writing composition
  • Speak more precisely and persuasively
  • Comprehend more of what they read
  • Read faster because they comprehend better
  • Get better grades in high school, college and graduate school
  • Score higher on tests like the SAT, GRE, LSAT and GMAT

What's great about playing here is that for each correct answer you get, they will donate 10 grains of rice through the UN World Food Hunger Program to help end hunger.  My sons have already donated a total of 9,500 grains of rice.  And we learned that we get to help our country, the Philippines, through this program. That is wonderful!

Not only are they getting smarter playing the games but they actually build their character in the aspect of sharing, giving and social responsibility.  Why not help end world hunger at the same time help your kids become smarter. Play for free!

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
