When I looked at an online fun holiday calendar I noticed that September has two pizza days! September 5th is Cheese Pizza Day and September 20th is Pepperoni Pizza Day.
I’m pretty sure that my kids learn through their stomachs. Food, especially treat foods that we don’t eat often, seems to be a big motivator. They will happily stay engaged in lessons if there is food involved. I promise I do feed them!

I’m pretty sure that my children learn through their stomachs, so I try to match educational foods to food any chance I get.
