iPad Lesson: Educreations Math for Kindergarten

In Kindergarten, the students are typically using the iPads with content based apps to practice letter recognition, writing, and basic math, but I wanted the students to use the iPad as a creation tool just like the older students do in my schools. The students were working on CC standard K.MD.A.2 to describe and compare measurable attributes in which they compare to see which group has more than or less than. The students first used the app Make A Scene: Farmyard (FREE) to create a picture with two groups of animals, one with a greater number than the other. Then the images were pulled into the Educreations (FREE) app for students to record their math stories. In the Educreations video that we published, you can see the students circling their groups of animals, counting the animals in each group and stating which group is greater or less.

If we were to distill the Fast Diet into a single sound-bite, it would all come down to 5:2.

How to do intermittent fasting » The Fast Diet

That’s five days of normal eating, with little thought to calorie control and a slice of pie for pudding if that’s what you want. Then, on the other two days, you just eat a quarter of your recommended daily calorie quota. That works out at 500 calories for women and 600 for men. This was Michael’s method for improving his health and losing over 20 pounds in 2012. I followed his plan, and dropped the same amount, losing two dress sizes and four inches from my waist measurement in the process. In The Fast Diet book, we outline exactly how to go about the process in order to achieve the greatest effect.

Should you be sceptical? Since you are only fasting for two days of your choice each week, and eating normally on the other five days, there is always something new and tasty on the near horizon.

Marissa Evans

Following business school, I worked at a digital consulting firm in New York City where I would frequently meet with entrepreneurs. I deeply admired their work and considered the life of an entrepreneur to be my dream job: to have my own company, to build a team and to try and create something from nothing. It felt like what I was built for. Over time, it became clear to me that I desperately wanted to leave the traditional corporate environment and start my own tech company. I had little experience in technology, and had never launched an iPhone app before, but I was determined to figure out how to do it and make it work. At every step of the way, I would think about what tasks to list out for the following day, as well as what they would need to be to get me to my ‘grand vision’. Home – Little Miss Party.

fashion bloggers and lifestyle blogs by women over 40

To that end I have setup the style forum where we can get together, feature many fabulous 40+ women and style bloggers in our style interviews and organise frequent dressing challenges. Apart from many readers, I have also met lots of bloggers over 40 and I thought it would be great to bring them all together on this site as well. Although the sites are randomly arranged in no particular order (with people that I connect with or that send back the most traffic to 40+Style currently at the top), you can easily put them in alphabetical order by clicking the arrows above a column. Or just search by keyword. You can also arrange by country or name. This list is a work in process and I will continue adding to this list as I see new 40+ bloggers or hear from you.

Wise Men Celebrating the Mass Lessons: (First Grade On Up) The celebration of Mass is a hard concept for younger students to understand and with the new Roman Missal being implemented on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011 makes it even harder. With that said I will attempt to produce various lessons to help students learn the parts of the Mass.

The lessons will provide catechists, teachers, or parents with activities, crafts, games, puzzles, worksheets, etc. to use with their students or child to learn what goes on during Mass and what they should do. This will be geared for students first grade on up. *These lessons can also be used to supplement any curriculum that you already use. (Please take in consideration that I am just a Mom and I'm providing these lessons and activities to the best of my abilities.

Out of 125 responses from teachers indicating their top 3 apps, these are the apps that were listed most often.

Today we share the apps that were listed most often, and include some feedback from teachers regarding why they like them so much.

As it turns out, free apps really outweighed paid apps in our survey responses. Here I list eleven free apps that rose to the top of the list when ranked by numbers of votes, followed by four paid apps that performed as well as the lower ranking free apps.
