Really hope we can be part of the winner presentations again this year!
Part of the Common Core ELA Standards requires students to be able to read informational text and determine meaning. We think this reading note can be really handy and useful!
Causes of the War of 1812 This is a great video and a good starting point on wars - why they start, what we think will be the result and how it ends up. It is an interesting war in that there really was no winner. Remember there is No unbiased opinion. If you are the winner your views are always different from the loser. If you are one pulled into a war your view will be different again. Have each child look at this war from a Canadian, American, British and even the Indian viewpoint.
I just love how much respect the majority of our fandom shows Benedict. I know we can be a little over the top and seem to be over obsessive but I think we really do care. Everyday I am very thankful to be a part of this beautiful fandom family as we continue on this journey, supporting Benedict and encouraging each other on in life. I know, I know it's a little sentimental but I mean it. ~ Proud member of the Cumbercollective
I like how she lays out the pages. This would be a good review of part 1 of American history before we jump into part 2 this year. #Homeschool timeline of US History from @Elly Kohs-at-Home
Maybe if I can handle sunflower seeds again (I really hope so), then I could try this recipe (minus the vanilla.)

*~*Save and Protect the Elderly! We are their only hope they have. Please Spread the word. Be a part of the SOLUTION, not the PROBLEM.
But really we should make everyday special, we will never have this day again, when we are x age, on the xxth day of xx month in 20xx year! Kind of scary to think of it like that but more reason to keep this in mind and do at least ONE thing to make the day special
I ❤ crazy quilts . . . We are now up to block 12 on this grid, of the “I dropped the button box” quilt. Once again I hope people will enjoy
Letting feet stay busy..... students can push on the band while sitting in their chair. This will help the child who needs constant movement. (We used these with a couple of our boys last year, really helped)
Kindergarten Art Project Ideas
Beautiful cake! Great idea to have lyrics of love songs on here! We want our theme to surround music so I think this could be really special. We will have to see if the DuPont baker can do this!
This is one amazing theory and I do hope we can some kind of explanation for it in the future
WHEN WE WRITE WE OFFER THE SILENCE AS MUCH AS THE STORY.WORDS ARE THE PART OF SILENCE THAT CAN BE SPOKEN. - Jeanette Winterson
“Anything compared to Harry Potter is probably going to be quite shocking, I suppose. Because we’ve grown up (on screen), because we started when we were 11, people think we’re still 11-year-olds. But it’ll be something that’ll always be with me. I’ll always be the ginger one from Harry Potter, but I’m quite OK with that. I’m proud to be a part of it, really.” - Rupert Grint <3
We never know where we will be at the end of our journey. We do however, know where we are today and from there we can use our hope and
Sometimes we come across items that make so much sense that they should really be a part of the original product and not some add on

The Truth About College: Tips from a Graduate. This is a must read for any college student. Seriously, I'm in my senior year of school & have been overwhelmed for awhile & this post gave me hope that my last year can be great!!

Loving this homemade unconventional gift for Valentines especially since we don't really celebrate by giving gifts.....but this can be cost effective because many of the gifts can be enjoyed by the whole fam. I know it's for the husband but I'm sure he won't sharing his bag of chips :)

"God, if you let me be the Easter bunny this year, I promise to never make fun of the Cadburry bunny ever again!"
I made this today and we really liked it. I added a can of mushrooms and skipped the fresh parsley.
[gifset] I’d love to work with this actress Danneel Harris again. The chemistry, it’s tangible chemistry, always nice to have that. You can really sell the part if you have that kind of chemistry with someone. Right honey? She’s so red right now. #Jensen on his wife... <3
