Things We Say Today Which We Owe To Shakespeare- fun stuff. who wouldda known!!??
Phrases We Owe to Shakespeare Becky, a 20-year-old English Lit geek living in London, scribbled out this list in a Moleskine notebook at 3 am a couple nights ago. She posted it on her Tumblr page, and within 24 hours, more than 11,000 people had saved it in their favorites file. She was astonished. “I still don’t know how something I scribbled in a hurry at 3am got so many notes in the space of a day? Shakespeare is clearly too awesome,” Becky said in an update on the post today. “I spelt “bated” wrong, awk … Someone said this looks like a serial killer’s notebook, which made me laugh a lot. They’re not wrong, I’ve been a sleep deprived zombie lately.” She certainly is a girl on a mission. On her birthday on August 30th, she set a challenge for herself: Read a book every week until she turns 21. “Lately, I’ve gotten into the terrible habit of buying books but never reading them. Gradually I’ve been reading less and less,” she said. She put together a list of 52 books (heavy on Palahniuk, Murakami and Hemingway) and posted it here. “I thought it would be a good way to encourage others to read more too.” Want to take the challenge? The details are here. She’s also giving away the books she reads. Awesome.

#1 Michael Jordan (1984-93, 95-98, 2001-03) Of course his Hall of Fame career was about more than numbers. He transformed and transcended basketball as a global icon. His talent, charisma and passion were incomparable. No one's ever played basketball better, and no one's meant more to the sport than Michael Jordan. NBA'S TOP 10 SHOOTING GUARDS.
Michael Jordan: Most people wouldn't believe a man often lauded as the best basketball player of all time was actually cut from his high school basketball team. Luckily, Jordan didn't let this setback stop him from playing the game and he has stated, "I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

Letting feet stay busy..... students can push on the band while sitting in their chair. This will help the child who needs constant movement. (Trying this in my classroom considering most of the kids I teach have attention problems)
Letting feet stay busy..... students can push on the band while sitting in their chair. This will help the child who needs constant movement. It's a thera band. Now how can I get some....free?
***Zach autism idea*** There is a simple trick that school therapists and teachers use a lot for kids who have trouble sitting still. It is to put some Thera-Band stretched around a chair’s legs so that the student can push on it while sitting in their chair. It can help a child who has to be moving much of the time. The child can push on it with their feet so that they are moving while sitting at their desk doing work.
Letting feet stay busy..... students can push on the band while sitting in their chair. This will help the child who needs constant movement. Alternative to velcro and wiggle seats! Therabands to the rescue!!
