Neat timesaver trick from mom. 1. Mince garlic in food processer. 2. Put in a gallon ziploc. 3. Spread garlic flat in ziploc and freeze.4. Take out garlic and chop into cubes. 5. Keep garlic frozen. Now you can add garlic into any of your dishes!
It is Mega Millions fever! I think that’s what giving me the sniffles. As you can see I have photographic evidence that I have bought a ticket or two.
The very sane side of me understands there is little chance of winning the historic amount, but the ticket is an investment in dreams that need some sort of funding.
So what would I do if I won. First, I would not tell anyone except for my immediate family. I would live a modest lifestyle that matches my profession.
The jackpot is so large is hard to fathom how one would spend the money. I would make sure that all of my debts were paid and set aside money that would ensure my soon-to-be husband and I have a nice retirement. Then I would make sure mine and his parents had a nice retirement. Then I would pay for my brothers’ college education. After taking care of my family, I would try to do some good with the money. Such as creating an endowment or program that can give opportunities to students in school districts. I am educator and I think it’s sad that all the extracurricular activities seem to be disappearing.
Those are some of my dreams. What would spend $640 million on?

Fantastic word decoding strategy that I can’t wait to try. The power of the red dot! #elemchat #spedchat #literacy
I saw this on Pinterest and really think is is an awesome strategy that would help struggling readers as well as emergent readers.
From the site: “Thanks to brain specialist Fritz Mengert, I learned how to use a red dot in my reading instruction. Dr. Mengert told me that placing a red dot in the center of a word helps kids focus on the middle rather than just the beginning. Many of my students just looked at the beginnings of words and guessed at what they were, and the red dot was the answer I had been looking for.
It worked! My students were much more able to distinguish between similar-looking words.”
Starting with a goofy portrait of his father’s photocopied face artist Miquel Endara embarked on an ambitious stipple drawing, using 3.2 million dots from assorted Micron pens to recreate the image on paper. Watch the wonderfully shot video above condensing 210 hours of drawing to see how he did it and also check out his website where he has a zoomable high-res version of the image.
I had to explain what a xerox machine is and why the dad’s face is so smushed, but after I did that, this video was co-curator-approved. (Also, love the type-work in this.)
