Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut- I bought this book just so I could read and reread "Harrison Bergeron" whenever I wanted, but I discovered another gem of a short story: "The Manned Missiles."

Harrison Bergeron is my favorite short story ever. I read it in college. First, though, I saw the movie with Sean Astin as Harrison.
If you have any appreciation for the art of the short story, you must read this book. He is a master.

"When I read great literature, great drama, speeches, or sermons, I feel that the human mind has not achieved anything greater than the ability to share feelings and thoughts through language." --James Earl Jones
James Earl Jones. Desde niño desarrolló un tartamudeo grave por lo que se negaba a hablar en voz alta, hasta que, a los 13 años, uno de sus profesores hizo que descubriera que tenía un don para la poesía e insistió en que leyera cada día una poesía en clase para que fuera corrigiendo su problema. Irónicamente, dos de sus papeles más famosos han sido prestando su voz: a Darth Vader en la saga de La Guerra de las Galaxias y a Mufasa en El rey León.

Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 13 November 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, and also frequently as H. H. Munro, was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirised Edwardian society and culture. He is considered a master of the short story and often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll, and Kipling, he himself influenced A. A. Milne ël Coward. “Discipline to be effective must be optional.”

Blog post explains article of the week homework and links to a ton of free resources for implementing them...love it!!! Nonfiction reading, informational text, close reading
Bulletin Board, Homework, Blog Post, 4Th Grade Classroom, By
Blog posts in our classroom could be used to give an idea of what we are doing that week. We could also maybe have the homework posted up there for that day, so that you could grab it on the way out the door.
I love the idea of teaching my students how to analyze and relate to different types of writing. This activity will allow my students to get used to reading the news and will teach them how to interact with current events. Great real world application while practicing reading/annotating skills.
I think that if I had this in my own classroom I would use this to post articles from the student friendly websites, that were focused on current events in other parts of the world. I would have students read and report on the weekly article.
Have students respond to current events each week. They can choose a relevant article.
My new favorite homework: Articles of the Week! Also work for shared reading
Love use of font and triple border colors
Love the bulletin board.
So, are you itching for winter break to get here or what?!? I am drowning here, people! Between report cards, conferences (for my students and my own kids!), shopping, baking, parties, wrapping... DROWNING! Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year... but, seriously?! Such a crazy time! I don't know how my parents pulled it off every year. ******************* Anyway, today I want to do a shout-out to some of the best teachers that I've NEVER met: the fine, fine folks at Vale Middle School who put together these fabulous Articles of the Week and post them FOR FREE on their website for teachers everywhere to use. If you are not familiar with Articles of the Week (AoW), they are a great way to get students reading and interacting with lots of interesting and current informational texts. Kelly Gallagher (swoon!!) is a huge proponent of them and writes often of their use in his classroom. When I decided that I was going to scrap all other forms of homework and focus solely on AoWs, I turned to my besty, Google, to look for a place for great, kid-friendly articles, and lo and behold, I stumbled upon Vale's collection. Guys, seriously?! I can't even explain what a time-saver this site has been. Not only are these teachers scouring the net for great reads, but they also include scaffolded questions for each article based on the CCSS. So, basically, all you need to do is hit print, copy these babies, and send them home for homework!! AND... they are also editable, so you can modify any article/questions to fit your students' needs. I've been giving an AoW each week since September. It is the only homework that I assign. I can't say my students love them, but, they've gotten sort of amazing at close reading and analyzing them. And what's more, they are learning so much about the world! Vale has a huge collection of these AoWs. My favorite ones are those that also include a little video to go along with the article... it makes the whole experience like a mini-RST (if you are not a PARCC state, RST stands for Research Simulated Task). Vale also provides a rubric and a sample piece students can use as a model (I sent a copy of this home with each student in the beginning of the year so they knew exactly what was expected of them each week). Additionally, they provide a blank template so that you can create your own AoW using the same format. I have become a giant fan of the AoW... I actually can't imagine going back to more traditional homework. So, folks at Vale Middle School, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!! You are amazing! Keep up the great work! Ever try using the Article of the Week in your classroom? Think you might give it a try? I'd love to hear from you!! Happy Teaching!! (And Happy Holidays! This might be my last post until the new year because, you know, drowning and everything!! Thanks for reading, and I'll see you bright and early in 2016!!)
Article of the Week
This is one of the best concepts I've ever heard
Tumblr Post, Tumblr Humor Post, Movie Timer, Writing Prompts, Short Story Prompt, Write A Book, Soulmate
Soulmate Countdown Hmm, I don't know if I would want this. But it's chock full of good story ideas and conversation starters.
The picture is from the movie Timer. All these stories are very similar to the plot of the movie. The timer only starts counting down when your soul mate gets a timer.
If a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate, would you want to know? Tumblr post
WRITE A BOOK, PLEASE. Omg. I just can't. If your wrist counted down the moment you met your soul mate.
QUESTION!!!-This was beautiful. Would you guys want one of these? I'd actually be really scared because what if my soulmate was expecting something else, ya know? Or I was too? Idk, it would kinda be nice because you know that IS the one. Theirs no guessing but and no mistakes but honestly, I would think you would need to make mistakes to really find your soul mate. I think that part of life. What do you guys think?
Soulmate Countdown. This is amazing. Someone should write a book about this. Someone, please.
I want to write a book about this. What if when the clock stops your soul mate pasted on.
Writing Prompt: Born with a timer that tells you when you meet your soulmate..
Soulmate Countdown. Someone write a book about this. Now.
Great quote from my favorite writer.

(independent work) Students fill in the missing vowels to finish the story. All of the words have short vowel sounds, as well as pictures to help students figure out the missing vowel. This may be more of a kindergarten level activity.
Although the children may not be able to put the letters in the empty space, they can interpret what is supposed to go in the box because of the pictures.
