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
Maybe if I can handle sunflower seeds again (I really hope so), then I could try this recipe (minus the vanilla.)
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
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
"The Best Part of Me" end of year project- can be adapted from Kinder to 5th! precious
Word of the Day
*~*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.
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
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!
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
This is one amazing theory and I do hope we can some kind of explanation for it in the future
We created a FREE 49 slide PowerPoint interactive activity that will help explain the components of the Daily 5 to our students. The students will be actively learning through think-pair-share and whole group discussions. We hope this will be a great way to start the year for ourselves and our students!

“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
WHEN WE WRITE WE OFFER THE SILENCE AS MUCH AS THE STORY.WORDS ARE THE PART OF SILENCE THAT CAN BE SPOKEN. - Jeanette Winterson
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
Wow, I feel like this is me. We're all stuck following the rules of social culture and we can't be who we really want to be. I have a gothic mindset and I'd much rather dress goth or emo, but society says it's wrong to do so and so I'm stuck playing the part of the good, normal little girl.
This will be the first page in our interactive notebook.. lobe it. Had students ask me last year what was the point of social studies. We can start the yr with them knowing

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
Bag lust! I really hope I can find this at the new outlet in Chesterfield!
Love the dimension of this color and shape of the cut! Best part is it can still be pulled up!
14 days of Valentine's for husbands. 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 :)
We're going to ignore the part where we, like most humans, would not be able to pull off this kind of high-waisted, printed flare, and just focus on how flawless Kendall Jenner looks right here. Why don't we look like this again? via StyleList
Mastectomies, or surgical removals of all or part of a breast, can be life-saving procedures for people suffering from or at risk of developing breast cancer, but the scars they leave behind can be both physical and psychological. A website called P.Ink has helped tattoo artists connect with women who want to tattoo their mastectomy scars. One such tattoo artist, David Allen, had inspiring things to say about the process; “What was clinical became beautiful again… we turned sterile into sensual.
