As a veteran teacher, one of my requested forms to share is my syllabus. This is a basic template of my syllabus that can be used and edited to suit your needs (for any subject). I included an editable Microsoft Word version, Pages for Mac version, and a PDF of my completed syllabus dressed up with different fonts and pictures to offer a little inspiration to play with the template to suit your needs and personality. by sheila.moose

I took the 2nd Grade Standards and turned them into student and teacher friendly “I can” statements. I used those to create these records. They have been updated to allow users to enter data using Acrobat. They can still be printed up and filled in by hand if you prefer. I made two types of records. One for tracking an individual student’s progress and one for teachers to track when they have taught/reviewed each standard. Use the checklists as a quick reference for your whole class. $ by sonja

Within the enameling world, Ricky always returns to his true love: cloisonne. "It offers an easy way to balance my need for being in control and letting go," he says. And as a teacher, Ricky gets to reconnect with the feeling he had 35 years ago when he started working with enamels as he watches his students struggle between freedom and perfection. by sherrie

This was a fun one to create. I used some journaling cards that I got at Michaels, cut them down to size, then embellished each pocket with various odds and ends from my scrap stash. I filled the back of each pocket with an assortment of goodies for my new Pocket Letter Pal, like a tea bag, die cuts, stickers and other goodies as well as a letter to introduce myself. #PocketLetters #PocketLetterPals #ArtandWhimsy by rosella

Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service, only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food - NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit n the back. He greeted people to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation. "We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek." The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him. He walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment then he recited, “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’'The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame. He then said, "Today I see a gathering of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?" He then dismissed service until next week.Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It's something you live by and share with others. by sherri

took an old window and painted the back using paint and my star stencil. I used both house paint and craft paint that I had on hand. I added a touch of brown to my white because I wanted a more distressed look on my old window. I started with the white, wait for it all to dry then paint blue over the white stars in one thick stroke. Do another coat when it drys if desired. Then paint the red stripes by Carrie Pittman Nance
