Why is an omega-3 supplement company concerned about kids, schools, and education, you might ask?
Click this image to enter your school

Nordic Naturals, a global company based in Watsonville, CA, is committed to giving each generation what it needs to grow healthy and strong. That begins with exceptionally pure and fresh omega oils–essential for optimal health at any age.

Omega-3 fish oils are especially critical for children and students because of the many ways they support brain health.

In Amazing Grades, contributor Dr. Keri Marshall, Chief Medical Officer for Nordic Naturals, writes:

“Recent research suggests that the brain’s frontal lobe, which is associated with impulse control, planning, organization, and decision-making abilities, continues to grow well into a person’s twenties.

“We need all those skills to succeed in life, but especially to succeed in school.”

Dr. Marshall goes on to explain that extensive clinical research shows that the omega-3 essential fatty acids found in fish oil help nourish the brain and offer key benefits in these areas.

Unfortunately, Americans of all ages consume too few omega-3s, found in cold-water fish like salmon and sardines.
This problem is made worse by the fact that most people also consume too many omega-6s–essential fatty acids that compete for space with omega-3s in our cells and contribute to poor health. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in processed foods and in vegetable oils like corn and soy found in so many of the foods we eat.

“This imbalance in the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats,” Dr. Marshall says in Amazing Grades, “can promote inflammation and may contribute to a variety of health problems, including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, and other behavioral and psychological issues.

The good news, Dr. Marshall says, is that a growing number of studies indicate that omega-3 fatty acids can have powerful, positive effects throughout the body, including in the brain.

Some of the impressive findings include:

Attention and Behavior: In a University of South Australia clinical study, 132 children with ADHD between the ages of 7 and 12 who were not on medication were given fish oil capsules. At the end of the study, they were calmer, less impulsive, and showed improvements in attention, behavior, and vocabulary.

Higher Grades and Test Scores: Studies show that just the simple addition of cold-water fish to the diet once a week improves grades and leads to higher scores on intelligence tests.

Learning and Literacy: Improvements in verbal learning and spelling, better information retention, and even taking fewer sick days from school were some of the outcomes noted in a group of children who regularly took omega-3 fish oil supplements. That research was conducted with 355 children between the ages of 7 and 12.

Memory and Problem Solving: During pregnancy, mothers preferentially transfer their own stores of omega-3 to their developing babies. “Researchers have found that children whose mothers consumed enough of these healthy fats while pregnant are more likely to score higher on tests of memory function,” Dr. Marshall writes, “while other evidence suggests that babies who receive formula supplemented with EPA and DHA do better at problem-solving tasks than their peers.”

Lasting Benefits: Research also supports the fact that taking omega-3s has lasting cognitive benefits. Eighteen-year-olds who ate more fish at 15 outperformed their non-fish eating counterparts on tests of combined intelligence, verbal performance, and visiospatial performance.

Dr. Marshall summarizes, in Amazing Grades, “Studies like these demonstrate just how important it is to get omega-3s throughout childhood and adolescence. Yet most people aren’t getting anywhere near what they should. That’s why I and many health care experts recommend supplementing with omega-3s in the form of fish oil (algae oil if you’re vegetarian).”

Dr. Marshall recommends Nordic Naturals award-winning supplements for children because of their exceptional purity and freshness, delivery systems kids enjoy (gummies, chewable soft gels and liquids), and great taste.

“I can read!” – Doc Meek

Today I am full of gratitude that I live in a literacy culture. I am so glad that my mother learned to read as a child. She is 95 years old now and can’t do many things, but she still enjoys reading! Even when she’s confined to her bed. – Doc Meek

Re:  Fix the most common reading problem in 5 minutes
Dear Doc,
Today’s article is from our reading expert, Bonnie Terry, of
Kids that take a long time to read or do their homework typically actually have a reading problem known as reading fluency problems whether they have a learning disability, dyslexia, or ADHD. In fact even kids that are gifted can even have reading fluency problems.

In all my years as a learning disability specialist and educational therapist I can easily say that about 95% of the students I’ve seen in my 35+ years of teaching kids with reading problems have had reading fluency problems. Reading fluently describes how a skilled reader reads aloud.

Let me give you an example…I met Jason in March; he was in 4th grade.  He had brown straight hair and a great smile, although he didn’t smile very often then. He was floundering; it took what seemed like ‘forever’ to read. He repeated, skipped, and substituted words when he read, too. It was painful to listen to his stilted repetitive reading.  His classmates were zooming right past him. His mom Kate was losing sleep over what to do and how to help him. She had already been told by the school that Jason would most likely be held back.

Kate, at a loss for what to do contacted me and told me what was going on. First I reassured her that there was much that she could do as a parent to help Jason. Then we got started.

I knew we needed to work quickly to get his reading level up so that he wouldn’t be held back. One of the keys to Jason’s improvement was reading fluency training which helped him to sound out words more quickly and read accurately without repeating, skipping or substituting words. By the end of his third session of specific fluency activities he had already improved his reading speed and accuracy. Within several days he went from 30 words per minute to 60 words per minute. His confidence soared.

What Causes Reading Fluency Problems

Reading problems are typically due to a combination of learning skills, areas of perception, that aren’t working as well as they could, should, and can. And you can have a reading problem without having dyslexia or a learning disability.

So, what specifically was going on with Jason?

Jason did not have an actual learning disability or dyslexia. What Jason did have was a variety of areas of perception (visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic) that weren’t working as well as they could have been which impacted his ability to read fluently.

Jason was very bright; he just couldn’t read quickly enough to gain meaning from what he read. So, to improve both Jason’s speed of reading and his comprehension, a major component of what we did was reading fluency training which improved his speed, accuracy, and comprehension as well as the areas of perception that were not working as well as they should have.

“What? Me disorganized?” – Doc Meek

Today I am full of gratitude for disorganization! It gives us a chance to learn to create order out of chaos. – Doc Meek
This is your Newsletter from Pat Wyman:
Today: In her continuing series, our expert Susan Kruger of has a new article for you about organization and how to make is simpler for your child or student.
Dear Doc,
Disorganization is one of the top complaints I hear from parents and educators.
Teachers tell many stories about students who fail classes because they lack the organizational skills to keep track of their assignments.

School counselors and psychologists tell about the huge number of students referred to them for suspected learning disabilities, only to discover that a large percentage of these students simply lack organizational skills.

Parents are totally dismayed because they try to keep everything organized, but they aren’t at school to oversee organization, when it seems to matter most.

Why Is This Happening?

There are three main reasons students have trouble staying organized:

  1. They have too much “stuff.”  Most students have 12 to 16 different folders and notebooks to keep track of across a whole lot of transitions: from home, in the car/bus, to school, in the locker, back into the book bag, into class, back to the locker, and then home again.  (Elementary students may only have a half dozen folders, but that’s still five more than they should have!)

  1. Everything looks alike.  When those folders and notebooks are stacked in the locker or book bag, they all look the same!

  1. Any time students are managing papers, they are in a hurry.  Whether they are rushing out of class at the end of an hour, rushing from their locker at the end of the day, or rushing to finish their homework at home, they are always in a hurry.

Read the full article here:

Let’s Relate This to Our Lives as Adults

Imagine having 12 to 16 different email accounts to maintain every day.  Imagine if you were expected to log into each account several times each day, respond to emails and retrieve old/sent emails at the snap of a finger?  It would be overwhelming to transition between them quickly.

This is what students deal with every day, managing so many different school supplies.  They have the added burden of managing these materials across several daily transitions.  Teachers have good intentions when they ask students to maintain a separate folder and notebook for their class; they think that separate supplies will make it easier for students to keep science papers organized in the science folder and math papers organized in the math folder.

However, this traditional system is actually creating the problem.  The sheer volume of folders and notebooks (not to mention textbooks and workbooks) makes it hard for students to find the right ones, especially when they are in a hurry!

As a result, students haphazardly throw papers the first place they can.  Later, they have no idea what they did with their papers.  Papers can be anywhere…

“Learning Personality Tests are Important.” – Pat Wyman

Today I am full of gratitude for the differences in student personality.  – Doc Meek, Sat, Aug 17, 2013, Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA

There are 8 learning personality types. Find out which ones your kids are and coach them toward greater school success.

“Parents, teachers and tutors worldwide are raving about our award-winning Playbook for Learning.” – Jen Lilienstein

This is our guest Newsletter from Pat Wyman. Thank you, Pat!

Today: Why Learning Personality Tests are Important
Dear Doc,
Our Learning Personality expert and author, Jennifer Lilienstein, tells why learning personality tests are important in her most recent article.
In high school and adulthood, we often look to personality tests for information about who we are or to discover why a loved one or colleague acts a certain way, but there are many reasons why learning personality tests are important in elementary school.
Susan Cain’s book Quiet highlighted just how important the introvert-extrovert dichotomy is, but there are many other personality type facets that are equally important.
1. Administering learning personality tests at the beginning of the school year can help teachers create richer, stronger relationships more quickly with students because they have a greater insight into who the child is and what interests him most.
And as Piaget, Vygotsky, Dewey, Czikszentmihalyi, Renzulli, Gardner, all the way through brain-based educators like Sousa and Willis have been saying for decades, affective education–or education that creates an emotional response in learners–is the most effective education.
2. It may not always be obvious to a teacher which children would score as introverts or extroverts on learning personality tests. Knowing this can help a teacher identify which kids naturally think out loud versus the kids that prefer to reflect first before contributing to a discussion.  One of the things I come across most often in my interactions with both parents and teachers is a misunderstanding of what an introvert truly is.
Parents will say things like “my child is extroverted–she just takes some time to warm up” or teachers will report, “that child is clearly an extrovert–he is by no means a loner at recess or during lunch.” The difference between extrovert and introvert is much more in line with how kids recharge their batteries. Does he draw his energy from groups of people or alone time? If he is the former, he is an extrovert, while if he is the latter, he is an introvert.
3. Knowing whether your child scores as a judger (slow-and-steady wins the race personality type) or perceiver (energized by deadlines personality type) on learning personality tests can help you play to their strengths from both organizational and time management perspectives and turn homework headaches into study success.
At a high level, judgers perform better with outboxes and day timers, while perceivers do best with inboxes and at-a-glance calendars. But the differences go even deeper than this and have been studied by social scientists for decades.
4. Getting a sense of how your class as a whole prefers to learn can help teachers plan or seek out curriculum that will engage and motivate their current class mix. It’s easy–and free–to administer learning personality tests for your whole class in the computer lab in under 30 minutes by using a tool like Kidzmet’s preference profile.
While there are a variety of ways to stretch students beyond their comfort levels, most of these techniques are based upon meeting learners where they are academically. Using temperament to differentiate instruction can take these insights a step further and provide you with a framework for curriculum upon which you can design more engaging lesson plans… read more here…
