I'll end up losing my almost 2000 posts and become a new member again, but oh well... feel it's the best thing to do.

Changing Names

I'll be "outed" pretty soon if I don't change my name. My fault - I've mentioned this site, albeit vaguely, and now colleagues want to know what it is.

So look for me, but under a different name.

Acrostic Poetry

When our principal retired a few years ago, we developed an acrostic poem. We made a 12x18 poster of each of the letters in her name. Each student stepped forward as the poem was read. It was very...

I have an old Kerr canning book. Paperback, paid $2 30 years ago! It's been an excellent resource. I do believe the Ball or Kerr books are still available. I usually see them around canning season in...

We had a second grade teacher last year who qualified for retirement a long time ago, but kept teaching. It was becoming problematic, for she was losing her edge.

Come to find out, she didn't know...

Limited Vision Student

I second the motion on getting this student a 504 accommodations plan. You want to give him the best edge possible on state testing, and if a plan is not in place no accommodations can be made.

Metropolitan Opera

I traveled out of town this weekend to attend "La Triviata" performed by the Met Opera --- in HD at a movie theater. It was an amazing experience.

What a marvelous gift technology has provided!...

I, too, just use Word. I created a table about 5 years ago. Tweak when needed. Color-code, shade, etc.

Our older daughter had a couple on her hands removed (frozen off) about 12 years ago. It was simple, relatively painless, and the warts did not come back.

Last summer, our youngest daughter (19)...

Be sure to go to the Corning Museum! A little bit south, but sooooo much fun! We spent almost the entire day there! Besides the museum, you can see art glass created (blown), and you can even go to...

Novel Study

Be sure to double check with the older grade levels to prevent reading aloud a book that another teacher may be doing as a novel study.

Granted, it's fine to read a book twice, especially if one...

Received the sad news that a student of mine lost her father suddenly today.

He was diagnosed with pneumonia, life-flighted out of town (we are very rural), and passed away about 2 hours ago.

Microfiber - UGH!

Microfiber is a combination cotton/polyester.

It has come into "fashion" because the cost of cotton has climbed so much. (Have you noticed how much your jeans have gone up???)

I really dislike...

Commercials using MacBook

Oh my! Each group had a different camera!

There was a Flip, which I was totally unfamiliar with. I really did like it - simple to use and good resolution. I liked the fact that there was a USB...

Lots of good suggestions previously posted.

Regarding walking down the aisle - she could go down the aisle solo. Many are doing it, one escort will not be chosen over another.

Just a thought......

Craft/sewing supplies

I know exactly what you are saying about kids get "into" homework!

See if the kids can bring in buttons, yarn, rick-rack, and other sewing notions. I encourage the students to ask aunts,...
