My friend, Kathleen, brought the salad with this dressing on it. Oh my gosh, one of the very best salads that I ever! (Oh, I made it at home, too. It tasted just as good.) She told me that the key is to use more dressing than you think you need. And yes, she is right. Put more dressing than you think you need! by nanette

Five Finger Rule. This is also another great idea for students when it comes to picking out books they want to read. However, you should encourage reading different material instead of books that they can easily understand. They may need help with the books but they are able to look at different books. This can be used for when they are picking books out individually. by Sarah Grant z8SYU
