Liquid Dano reunion! Dana Lawrence Music and *EXTRA* special guest Pino Farina of Pünsapaya, live in concert on Cinco de Mayo!

Dana and Pino began playing, singing and writing songs together in the early 90s when they were teenagers. They recorded their first two albums of all original music (Liquid Dano I and II) on cassette tape, on a mini TASCAM in Pino's basement. Almost 25 years later, Dana and Pino are bringing their musical stylings together again, in hopes of reliving the epic jams that once filled the Denny's parking lot. Who's with us?!

May 5th, 7:30-10:30pm

t2t Topic of the Week: Writing by Hand Makes You Smarter

Did you know that using pencil and paper benefits your brain? Writing by hand increases neural activity and productivity, and is essential to brain development and cognition.

The motor control and focus required to write engages more brain regions involved with thought, language and short-term memory, helping kids hone fine motor skills, learn how to generate and express ideas, and increase information retention. This brain-engaging task naturally encourages creativity and increases learning comprehension, and maintaining a good writing habit helps to keep your brain balanced and sharp as you get older. This is all scientifically proven!

How do you develop a good writing habit when so much is done on the computer? Unplug and find a reason to write: keep a journal, compose a letter to a friend or family member, make up a story, write poems, keep lists (grocery, to-do, favorite things, places to visit, etc.); any reason will work!

want to learn more about how writing by hand benefits your brain? check out johanna silver's "9 incredible ways writing by hand benefits our bodies and brains" at https://www.littlethings.com/benefits-of-writing-by-hand/ #thinkfeelgrow #tunes2teach

t2t Topic of the Week: Study Habits for Success

Students who create effective workspaces outside of the classroom are more likely to succeed! The wrong environment can amplify frustration, hinder productivity and block understanding of work.

The right environment can increase output and efficiency, support comprehension and even inspire extra effort. Work smarter, not harder!

To create an effective workspace, keep in mind 6 simple "C"s: Keep it Clean, Consistent, Comfortable, Clutter-free, Cut off from distractions, and Close to someone who can help.

want more tips on how to create an effective workspace for your child? check out abc 7's august 2013 article "how to create a comfortable, welcoming workspace for your child at home" at http://abc7ne.ws/2kRDkVr #thinkfeelgrow #tunes2teach
t2t Topic of the Week: Anxiety at School

It's not all in your head! Did you know that students who experience anxiety at school are less likely to learn and perform to their potential?

Recognizing and acknowledging feelings is essential to a child's mental health and cognitive function. Teaching children how to understand and respond to their feelings is as important to growth and development as any academics!

want calming strategies to share with your kids? check out rachel poetker's blog post "four strategies to help students cope" at http://bit.ly/2iRobBv #tunes2teach

sometimes all that separates confusion from comprehension is courage. remind your children to speak up for themselves and ask questions when they're unsure of anything. #tunes2teach
t2t Topic of the Week: Brain Balance 

Are you "left-brained" or "right-brained?" A balanced brain makes a child's digestion and immune system function properly, and increases intellectual ability.

How do you achieve a balanced brain? Try physical balance activities that literally cross the midline of the body, play category games to develop word fluency, encourage imaginative play, inspire critical thinking by asking "what if?" questions, practice yoga, learn to juggle, engage in physical activity, arts and crafts, and frequent relaxation.
