The one thing that saves me from going crazy over whether or not our schooling decisions are the right ones for the year. The one thing that keeps me from obsessing over whether or not the shoes will last for more than one season. Or whether I should have bought the mechanical style pencils or not. That one thing…. is prayer.

Persuasive OREO Writing: Great idea for middle school! The students could even be given Oreos as a treat. It's a way easier way to explain persuasive papers to a younger crowd. I also feel that it could maybe only be a prop because any paper writing require more attention and more description than that.
Have a student sit on chair in front of white board and have others write a positive phrase about them, then take a picture. Don't let them see it...till they get the photo! Such a great end of the year activity or for those days when students are using unkind words about one another.
