SoundGecko Tutorials for Recycling T-Shirts - StumbleUpon So way way back, in June, I wrote this Studio Organization post, about starting the process of organizing my studio by cleaning out the closet full of junk.

I realized I could repurpose them into something else! Here are some tutorials for recycling shirts: Check out these t-shirt scarves!

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time. Teacher uses rap to help second-graders learn grammar, science, math Instead of staring at textbooks to memorize facts, students in Mr. Klicka's class sing rap songs. A teacher at Cedar Bluff Elementary School, Andrew Klicka writes rap music to help students learn and remember concepts. "I started writing raps because the social studies tests were so hard," Klicka said. During his first year as a teacher at Cedar Bluff, Klicka decided to write the social studies lessons in rhymes for his fourth graders. Klicka's students responded positively to the music, and even staged their own performance of some of the raps for a school event. Three years later, Klicka has written a total of 20 songs and expanded from rap to other types of music. His songs cover topics in science, grammar, history, and math, and have titles like "Photosynthesis Techno," "The Nation Rap," and "Break It Down" (a song about erosion). He uses Garage Band, a computer program that enables users to add tracks and mix music, to write the songs.

V and Co how to: jersey knit bracelet - StumbleUpon i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home. *sigh* okay... *cut off excess tails!

DIY Coupon Sleeves | Yay! After seeing this pin for DIY coupon holders (by Erin at Taking Time to Create), I decided to give it a try… The first thing I did was to measure out my grid… I used a baseball card sleeve that I currently have in my coupon binder as a template… Then I just slid it into a clear sheet protector… Next I slid the page under the needle on my sewing machine and followed the lines! Make sure to backstitch each end to make sure that you’re stitches don’t come out! Almost done! With a very light touch, carefully slide an exacto knife’s blade just under the first row of horizontal stitches, being careful not to cut into the stitching… Be sure to flip it over & do the backside too… The bonus in DIY-ing these coupon holders is that they are double-sided! So simple! I would have never thought to use my sewing machine to do a project like this… but in the space of about 20 minutes, I had five, new, double-sided coupon sleeves! And for about half the price of store-bought baseball card sleeves :’)

Junior High School Teacher Fired for Students’ Political Cartoons Source: The Times-Picayune by Mark Bousquet An assignment asking junior high school students to create a political cartoon has resulted in the teacher being fired. Though fired at the start of August, the assignment and original complaint occurred in late January 2012. After the St. At a public hearing on August 22, Folse revealed that Duncan was “fired for ‘making a bad, incompetent’ decision by posting the ‘violent’ pictures, as well as for dishonesty.” Duncan’s claims have support from one of the artists at the center of the controversy, the School Board, and the Supervisor of Administration. She was cramming to get the assignment done, and sadly, in the process (she) knocked over a marker that caused the mark to be made. Duncan’s attorneys asked Michael Cossé, the Supervisor of Administration, if Duncan would have been fired if the story had not been made public, and Cossé “paused, then replied, ‘Probably not.’”

Do-it-Yourself DIY String Wedding Lanterns Yarn Chandeliers - StumbleUpon Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry. Are you getting excited to try to do this at home as much I am? Instructions: 1.
