10 Expectations - YouTube: We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools. Students' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools. -- This would be good to share at our back-to-school inservice meeting. by otakukitty74

"In his own mind, with Moriarty speaking his own thoughts, he doesn’t even consider that his brother would be sad if he died." Mycroft would be sad, but I doubt he would cry. "What I really love about Sherlock’s reaction to Mycroft saying that isn’t that he seems to disbelieve the sentiment, but that he’s shocked Mycroft would actually say it out loud. “Mycroft! We don’t say these things to each other!” by liliana

These are stamps made out of rubber bands and cardboard. This would be such a great project to do in the classroom to tie in art with recycling! We could also use recycled paper for the material we put the stamps onto. The students could make a large mural of their  stamps like the black and white print collage that we saw downstairs in McMaster. This rubber band stamp project is the perfect recycled art project for early childhood classrooms! by KastleKitty

Love this idea! Our Elf arrived with a note from Santa and an empty box for each girl.  They were instructed to fill their box with toys to donate to other children, so Santa would have room to leave new toys.  The girls loved it, and boxes were filled within hours. by victoria

This was actually a really common thing in Roman times. Instead to fearing the time when death would come, they would just enjoy themselves and assume the gods had plans for them. They also put this in dining room so people would be reminded that they can eat what they want by leann
