Group Expectations. $ I really liked this poster because it's fun and pleasant to look at. I think it's important to have classroom rules and expectations up around the classroom so the students have reminders about acceptable behavior. I would probably hang this by a group work area in a classroom for a younger grade. -Joanne Jablonski

Inner Strength, The Women, Mothers, God, Heart, Don T Understand, Women Cry, Little Boys, Tears
This is a nice tribute to the women in our lives... A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” “Because I’m a woman,” she told him. “I don’t understand,” he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.” Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?” “All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say. The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?” God said, “When I made the woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort. I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children. I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining. I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly. I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart. I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly. And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.” “You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides.” Author: Unknown

Monthly Student Led Bully Prevention Lunch | Alton Middle School | 6th graders participate in monthly discussions on ways to prevent bullying and how to promote a safe and welcoming school environment. These lunch periods are student led, which allows for open, honest discussion about the issue. Students learn appropriate responses to bullying and a common language for preventing bullying as well as having fun activities, such as making anti-bullying slogans.

DIY "Magic Slushies" without the kit from TV. No crushed ice, just salt, Kool-Aid, and one minute of time -- I just did this because Grant has been begging for the magic slushie thing. I had snack size bags and sandwich bags, but it still worked. I'm going to try again with gallon sized bags. I used apple cherry juice for the slushie.
