I live in a rural community in central Texas. I live on 10 acres in a 100 yr old farm house with horses, dogs, cats, and a variety of classroom animals. I have 2 children- Marc, a Marine now in college and Katie, who just graduated from Le Cordon Bleu and is attending college. I am dating a wonderful man who is a career police officer with the City of Irving. We met in high school and reconnected 2 yrs ago. I love to be outdoors and am always up for an adventure.

It is never too early to bring in animals! Anything in a glass aquarium works great! Animals that are active during the day like fish are great. A hermit crab is fun and an easy keeper.  Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android

5 Creative cartoon assessments
this article suggests using cartoons to assess learning and offered good ideas for using them for middle schoolers but upper elementary students could also utilize them to demonstrate understanding. Some students will be able to produce a cartoon product but most willl be able to identify the lesson concept in a cartoon.
