1. Monday –  

  1. “Finished files are the result of years of scientific study combined with the experience of years.”  

How many F’s did you find?  

Answer: SIX 

Solution:Most peoplesay three. Why? We often dontcorrectly process the word OF for two reasons. First, the letter F usually makes the f sound, like in fox. However, in the word of, it makes a v sound. Second, you have probably read the word “of” so many times in your life that you process it as one unit, overlooking the second letter/ sound.   

2. Tuesday 

  1.  Of the 100 people at a recent party, 90 spoke Spanish, 80 spoke Italian, and 75 spoke Mandarin. At least how many spoke all three languages? 

Answer: 45  

10 could not speak Spanish, 20 could not speak Italian, and 25 could not speak Mandarin. So there could have been 10 people who spoke none of those languages.  

However, that would maximize the number of people who could speak all three, and the problem asks at least how many speak all three. Therefore, we must assume that these 10, 20, and 25 people are all separate people. Having identified 55 each of whom is missing one language, the remaining 45 speak all three.

Mindfulness for Teens: Practices 

  1. Tech Detox 

Devices contribute to our stress in numerous ways: they distract us from our direct experience, the emails and notifications aggravate our worries, and social media contributes to fear of missing out (FOMO) and lots of unhelpful comparisons. Encourage your teen to pay attention to how spending time on his devices makes him feel. Invite him to take frequent breaks (minimum 20 minutes at a time) when there’s NO technology — no phone, no TV, no computer, no iPod.   

Disconnecting from technology reconnects you to your experience!

Choosing a college is a serious step in reaching your future career goals. Doing research on your dream school will help you make the decision on whether that school is for you!  


  1. The first step is deciding which college or university you would like to attend one day. Take some time to look through some schools that you have heard of and look up some you have not. 
  2. Search through the internet and find photos of the university you selected.

Photos can include…..
