“… How beautiful it is to be alive
so that even in our most lumbered days

The resource spotlight of this blog post encourages conversations with students on their personal spending. The authentic, primary resource “hook” are receipts with history references. Among the most interesting are a 1861 receipt showing President Lincoln’s monetary gift contribution to a monument in honor of the early Plymouth Rock settlers.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 12

A wealth of research suggests that by framing learning with student interests in mind, teachers can increase student motivation and learning” (National Council of Teachers for English, 2015)

The natural habitat for a child is the creative world… being outside, making shapes out of clouds, having fun, throwing a ball against the wall. It’s not about sitting in front of a screen.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ March 23
