So all of us have survived the change in the year to 2021, the year we all hoped would come quickly. Why? So that we can leave Covid-19, political unrest, and solitary living behind us. So here we are in a new year and what has changed?
Visiting the Cliffs of Moher is the highlight of most people’s trip to Ireland and cannot be missed. Unfortunately, we visited on a rainy, misty day (most days in Ireland) and apparently the views on a sunny day are even more extraordinary. We enjoyed walking through the development and experiencing the sites and sounds of the Cliffs of Moher. On the way, as throughout Ireland, we saw the sheeps and cows enjoying the green of the Emerald Isle.
If you are like most people, pork chops are very difficult to enjoy unless they are cooked a certain way. I often feel that, unlike other meat, pork chops can often be too dry, hard to swallow and not that enjoyable.
Now that schools are changing week to week from hybrid in-school models to remote, depending on number of positive Covid cases how do you keep your child interested in online learning?
Many of us have had the opportunity to declutter now that we have been at home for months on end. We spend time in each room in our homes and can honestly say we can eliminate much of our clutter, or use it for that matter. How many times do we buy something and it just sits there? How many times have you literally gone through expiration dates? Well, let’s take a look at one room at a time.
Playing games is fun! As we know, learning can be more fun using games, especially in Math. Math games are a way to enrich students’ learning of math concepts, as well as to increase speed in computation. Math games can be used in all areas of math teaching. Motivation is when children freely choose to participate and enjoy playing a game that helps them with learning. Games motivate children! This creates a positive attitude which is essential to learning and mastering a subject. Games provide opportunities for students to reduce the fear of failure and error in a carefree and fun environment.
As more and more people like to have parties with continuous appetizers, making Stromboli is always a favorite of mine. I have tried to buy them at a deli in a pinch and I always regret it because I feel as if the ingredients are spared and most of the time, my friends or family will make a note that they prefer mine.
So for the past two mornings we wake up to temperatures in the 40s. Can this be possible in the middle of September? Well, after the year we have had, anything is possible. Thankfully, the forecast looks better towards the end of the week and we may even hit 75!
