Long Ago & Now Social Studies Unit
One of the very first units that I created was a Long Ago & Now Unit. Our social studies curriculum is sadly lacking in rigor and engagement, so I had to remedy the situation. Recently, I completely overhauled this unit and added additional elements to it making it more complete than ever! The Long Ago & Now Unit is one of my favorite units to teach now. It teaches students to compare and contrast on a variety of different levels. It is scaffolded for students who need a lot of help or also…

Summer Fun: Whirligig
I remember making these whirligigs as a kid. They were quick to put together and fun to play with for a long time after. I got the idea as a child out of my "Fold, Paste, Whittle, Paint and Hammer" book by Robert Pierce. I used the same exact copy today. It is hard to come by these days, so maybe check your local library. The supplies are very basic - yarn/string and a button. He actually suggests in the book that if you don't have a button to just cut a circle out of cardboard and put two…

reading in the kitchen - vanity cake
During the past few weeks I've been writing about myself a lot as I answer interview questions and assemble guest posts for my upcoming Chick Lit Plus blog tour for The Marrying Type. Consequently, I'm feeling pretty vain right about now, so this next Reading in the Kitchen recipe seems fitting. In On the Banks of Plum Creek, Laura Ingalls Wilder describes the vanity cakes Ma made for a party as honey-brown, puffy circles. Once again, I'm using The Little House Cookbook by Barbara M. Walker…
