EDD: What is your absolute favorite unit/lesson to teach? Like, get-so-excited-can’t-wait-for-students-to-roll-in-to-teach-it fave? Also, do you have a least favorite unit or lesson? Like can’t stand it but standards, standardized tests, important info to know, etc.?

writteninthekitchensink:

Last year, I was really looking forward to To Kill a Mockingbird with my 8th graders, but that felt like a very, very, very long unit. I also did it in late November-December- early January, which may have been part of the issue. I’m dreading it a bit this year as a result. 

However, I enjoyed my unit on The Omnivore’s Dilemma a lot more than I thought I would. I love the book, but I wasn’t sure how it would translate for the kids. They LOVED it, so I’m looking forward to doing it again.

As y’all know, I do not try with outfits, but I like nice makeup and hair. My go to products are Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturizer and Neutrogena makeup remover cloths.

Ecco Bella mascara! It’s paraben-free, which means it washes off pretty…

Face wash & chap stick.

I have allergies & chronic eczema.

It’s simple in my class room.
