God has given us salvation & a glorious eternal life through His Son Jesus. Yet we so often procastinate & equivocate. Don't wait for the perfect time; it will never come. Accept Jesus & invite Him into your life today. Because to be sure everyone has eternal life but we decide where we want to spend it. As it is written eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him (1 Corinthian 2:9). Truly His love is great by lolita

Starting early works: My girls are fluent in Spanish. They can read and write in Spanish, too. I do not speak it, though. They learned starting in preschool and continued in Dual Immersion. My 7th grader reads at a college level in both English and Spanish and my 5th grader translates for me with our Spanish-only speaking neighbors. This is a great way to open the world to your children. by dianna

This is a great reading chart to have in any grade, including 4th - 8th grade classrooms! It is a chart that talks about goals students have for their reading and when they achieve different steps they can move up on the poster. I think it would be a great incentive in the classroom for kids to want to read more! I would probably make mine a little more colorful and creative, but I love the idea! by MOSCARDO

Integrated Strategy Units in 4th & 5th Grade: Reading notebooks are a great substitute for strategy sheets for fourth and Fifth graders. This notebook allows them to record their thoughts and feelings toward the book, ask questions, consider changes, experience problems, and analyze characters. I love that it is called a reading journal and not a reading log because it makes the journal more appealing for students to express themselves. by SCmom2

Korpiklaani - Metsalle - It's a new Korpiklaani song, which needs a bit better recording quality, but it's a very good song nonetheless. The lyrics have not been released yet, but it is about Lemminkainen's hunt through the woods to hunt the magical moose of Hiisi, from the Kalevala (which is a really good read, by the way). by melva

In The Woods by Tana French. One thing I have to say about Tana French, is her characters are great; they are human, yet you still like them. The mystery plot line was not predictable, nor was the character interaction plot line which made it feel real. The case was full of detail and facts not necessary to solving the case, which I always appreciate. I like a realistic mystery, even though it felt drawn out at times. Overall very good, I hope by graciela
