Teach Me How To Factor quadratics(WSHS Math Rap Song)
Love this idea to teach kids giving a book a chance. "Blind Date with a Book" Activity for independent reading. Wrap up books and decorate with key words that relate to each. Students pick a book, unwrap it, record it and read for 30 pages. Good date=keep it, finish it, review it. Bad date=return it, and write about why it wasn't the book for you. Great "get to know yourself as a reader" activity! I am SO doing this!

सु Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings, my spirit. Teach me how to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear and this walk more in balance with the passing of each glorious sun सु --Lakota Prayer
A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents. Reading this just makes me want to do everything to be a better Mom. 1. My hands are small; please don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. My legs are short; please slow down so that I can keep up with you. 2. My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; please let me explore safely: don’t restrict me unnecessarily. 3. Housework will always be there. I’m only little such a short time—please take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly. 4. My feelings are tender; please be sensitive to my needs; don’t nag me all day long. (You wouldn’t want to be nagged for your inquisitiveness.) Treat me as you would like to be treated. 5. I am a special gift from God; please treasure me as God intended you to do, holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and disciplining me in a loving manner. 6. I need your encouragement, but not your praise, to grow. Please go easy on the criticism; remember you can criticize the things I do without criticizing me. 7. Please give me the freedom to make decisions concerning myself. Permit me to fail, so that I can learn from my mistakes. Then someday I’ll be prepared to make the kind of decisions life requires of me. 8. Please don’t do things over for me. Somehow that makes me feel that my efforts didn’t quite measure up to your expectations. I know it’s hard, but please don’t try to compare me with my brother or my sister. 9. Please don’t be afraid to leave for a weekend together. Kids need vacations from parents, just as parents need vacations from kids. Besides, it’s a great way to show us kids that your marriage is very special. 10. Please take me to Sunday school and church regularly, setting a good example for me to follow. I enjoy learning more about God. I know that when the kids are driving me crazy, I can sit down and read this and feel so much better! Where was this yesterday!?!?! :) *Feel free to print off and put on your fridge for a daily reminder of how to treat your kiddos! **A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents, by Dr. Kevin Leman
