My Students Need Your Help!

My Students Need Your Help!

What do you remember about 6th grade Social Studies.  Chances are, if you’re not a history buff, you don’t remember much.  Why?  Because if the lessons were not made to be exciting and relevant, we remember just what we need to in order to past test and quizzes, and then forget it.

Scholastic News helps makes Social Studies exciting and relevant.  It’s an excellent resource that is aligned to Common Core standards.  However, it’s a resource my school can no longer afford due to budget cuts.  As a result, our subscription has been cancelled.

I’ve created a DonorsChoose proposal to obtain the magazine again.  I now need donors.  Won’t you consider donating?  Will you share it with your friends and family so they can donate?

Help bring Social Studies to life for my students.

30 Days of Gratitude

30 Days of Gratitude

It’s November and for many, it’s the month symbolizes the season of Thanksgiving.  Our fellow blogger & friend, Fenixrizes, has issued the “challenge” to daily list at least one thing you’re thankful or grateful for.  Post it on your own social outlets – Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, etc…but share it.  You’ll be amazed how much you have to be grateful for!
