Celebrate July 2

Guess what!  It’s I Forgot Day!  Make a list of the best excuses for forgetting things.  Write a story about a time that you forgot something important. 

More importantly, it’s Freedom from Fear of Public Speaking Day.  That means it’s a perfect day to hold a talent show!  Gather up as many kids and adults as you can, and let everyone prepare a short act to do.  You might even want to have everyone share a spoken piece, whether it’s a short joke, a poem, or a long soliloquy.  Try some story-telling or reading out loud, too.

Have fun, and keep on learning!

Celebrate July 1!

Looking for a reason to celebrate today?  It’s more than just frivolity; it’s EDUCATION!  You can use international, little-known, and absolutely bizarre holidays to teach all sorts of things. 

And today is a great day to start-it’s Second Half of the Year Day!  Try these activities to have fun and promote learning:  Put the year in perspective.  Write a summary of what you’ve been doing the past six months.  What’s been good and what’s been not-so-good?  How are you doing on those New Year’s Resolutions?  Maybe it’s time for some renewed vigor in that direction, or even a time to make a few new mid-year resolutions.

It’s also Canada Day.  Do a little research to find out what our neighbors to the north are celebrating today.  How is the holiday celebrated?  Uncover facts and info about Canada.

Try this one for some cool fun today: July 1 is Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day.  What unique and delightful flavor can your child come up with?  You can actually try this one out, or try for the most bizarre suggestion on paper.  Turn it into an experiment, a survey (with graphing), or a writing exercise.

And it’s Build a Scarecrow Day.  Try it out, either by building a real scarecrow with old clothes, broomsticks and straw, or with an art project.  How about a Scarecrow Contest?

Finally, July 1st is Zip Code Day.  What can you do with Zip Codes?  Try checking your junk mail and making math problems out of them.  Which are larger or smaller and by how much?  How many pieces of mail did you get from the same Zip Code?  If you multiply that Zip code by the number of pieces of mail that you got containing it, what’s the answer?  Try this one, too: tell or write a story where the Zip code is actually a secret code for something besides moving mail efficiently.  What’s the code for and who is using it?  What happens?

Whatever you choose to do, have a wonderful July 1.  And don’t forget to visit http://sandyfleming.info again for more holiday fun!

The Learning Nook Forum is Up and Running!

June 25, 2008 · Filed Under Miscellania, Parents' Corner, Teachers' Corner, Tutors' Corner · Comment 

I’ve always wanted to do this!  I’ve finally got a forum going where parents, teachers, literacy workers, homeschoolers, and anyone else who is interested in education or has questions can gather and chat.  I hope you’ll visit soon!  I’m putting a link in the sidebar, but here’s one for now: The Learning Nook Forum.

Hello and Welcome!

June 25, 2008 · Filed Under Miscellania, Uncategorized · Comment 

I’m excited!  This is the very first post in the Learning Nook.  I’m planning to build a stellar education site that will provide parents, homeschoolers, and teachers with information about learning.  I also hope to showcase my writing and professional products, as well as services that I offer related to education and learning. 

I’m putting a more detailed biography in the About section, but briefly, I’m a special education teacher, private tutor, and a writer.  I live in Michigan with my husband and rapidly growing-up daughters, a couple of dogs and cats, and a nice corner of rural life.  When I’m not teaching or writing, I’m working on starting a local literacy organization, volunteering with Girl Scouts, helping with church things, reading fantasy fiction or mysteries, or making music.  I abhor housework, and my home is never quite as neat as I would like.  So if you come to visit, you’ll find a lived-in place with generally with lots of clutter.

How about you?  I’d love to make new friends!  Leave a comment and a way to contact you, and I’ll try to respond.  Leave a blog or web address, and I’ll try to visit.  Head on over to the Learning Nook Forum and see who’s hanging out.  Ask questions, give answers, make friends and find support.

And most of all, please stop back again soon!
