Looking forward to a cosy, quiet day after Christmas Eve festivities. I ate my weight in ravioli and 7 fishes. I‘m cheating with my #publicdomain pick for #booked2019 just cause I can. Merry merry, Happy happy.

MicheleinPhilly @Cinfhen I realized I only have a week left and started to panic. Just downloaded Kindred graphic novel for my last prompt. 🤓 2mo
MicheleinPhilly @eanderson Whenever someone asks my aunt, “May I bring a friend, co-worker, significant other? Will there be enough food?” she just laughs like, “Are you new here?” 2mo

MicheleinPhilly @Bookzombie How many prompts do you have left? 2mo
Bookzombie 2 and a half. I‘m in the middle of one. Then have public domain and Muslim author or main character. If I don‘t let time get away from me, I should be okay. I also need to post several that I have completed. Procrastinating is kind of my thing. 😂 2mo

This P by Clement Moore is a great way to introduce poems especially if it is around the holidays. I would implement this as a RA or CR in my classroom. The UDL 2.2 in order to better clarify how to read this poem fluently. The ESOL strategy I would focus on is 8 to go along with the UDL in understanding how to read a poem with the pauses and flow. #UCFLAE3414F19

So I used to just put a Hershey kiss in each box of this advent calendar, which worked great when we only had one kid. But it's too small for three kisses. So for the second year in a row, we have picked books from our personal library (only a few are Xmas), and put slips with the titles randomly in the boxes. I like this idea better than activities, because I'll actually follow through with it. Lol #Advent #kids #Xmas

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight from Texas.

Kaye Your tree is pretty. Did any of your star ornaments hold up to use again this year ? 2y
Aloisi_tribe @Kaye probably? When I put the tree away last year, I packed the stars in a special box so they won't get smashed or damaged. Then I put the special box in a special place that was not with the rest of the Christmas decorations. I have no clue where I put the box with the stars. I've looked all over the house. I'll find them when we move next year. 2y
Kaye I was wondering if you‘d be able to use them again. Unique because the pattern was passed down through the years from my Uncle Em, to me, to you, to your girls. I wish you could have known him. He made you feel very special and really listened when you talked, even though you were just a kid. A really good guy. 2y
