Nothing last week, which was deliberate because I had little to say. This time there’s more but then no more for a while because we are off to Spain for a couple of weeks. The promotion for Roselli’s Gold with ENT went well. I sold 87 copies on the day of the promotion, and a few more after that. Not a huge amount, but at least the royalties will cover the cost of the promo. I shall be going quiet while in Spain, but when I get back, there will be…Continue

Officially titled "An Act to Organize the Territories of Nebraska and Kansas," the Kansas–Nebraska Act of 1854 created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska, opening new lands for settlement, and had the effect of repealing the Missouri Compromise of 1820 by mandating “popular sovereignty” – which allowed the settlers of a federal territory to decide the slavery question without interference from Congress. http://bit.ly/1KOKtbj

As parents, we often worry about how we can actively help ours children’s education. Most of us aren’t teachers; we do not work in schools. In fact, we do not always even understand the standards they are supposed to learn, let alone know how to help them. But there is one activity we can do regularly that keeps us engaged with our kids, and helps their education at the same time: reading.
Reading is the most important academic activity you can do with your child.

How do you define a “soul mate”? Is it somebody we share a special bond with? Is it the one man or woman, as cliché goes, who is “destined” to walk life’s smooth or bumpy road with us?

Each one of us has a deep-seated fear. They come in all forms whether it’s fear of heights, to the more absurd, such as the fear of beautiful women (yes, there is such a thing. Look it up!). Well, there is one fear that is quite common. That is the fear of creepy, crawly insects. Surely, you can agree with me on this. Insects are so unpredictable and they can sneak into tiny space or any part of your body. Typing about that already makes my skin crawl, sheesh!…Continue

With all of the changes that the Common Core has ushered in, keeping up professionally has been extremely difficult for most teachers during the school year. However, many teachers use the summer months for professional reading, reflecting on past practices, and planning new and improved lessons and activities for the upcoming school year: with that in mind, take a moment to check out the opportunities that are available to ELA educators this summer:…Continue
