The whole day yesterday and today...I just could not think of anything to write!. Have I hit a writer's block? I have not read any new #book. I have not seen any new #movie...I have not bought anything special.....I have not tried a new #recipe.

Today was a good day at school. I was feeling pretty good, my voice held out, and I was able to keep my students engaged with the lesson. But now it is time to go home. I was going to stay and do some paperwork but after finishing one bit and real
Here's a very short story to make us realize how precious mothers are: One rainy day, 8 year old Saba goes to school by #bus but forgets her lunch-box on the breakfast table. Her mother, Mrs. Qamar sees the blue and red box on the table. She doesn't

Hello guys, For the past month I have seen some school supplies in stores, but I've seen it on TV too. Before I know it I see a store recently that says Spirit Halloween which is a Halloween store. Also, has anyone noticed it's get
I had actually used the search term "empty" on Pixabay but one of the images it brought up was this blank slate. Since I didn't really know what I was going to say about empty, and since school is about to start back up, and being that my principal likes u
Today started out as a pretty lazy day. I finished a book I've been reading called "Drowning Ruth" by Christina Schwarz. It is the 29th book I have read this year. Since the weather has been yucky lately I decided to get the kids and myself out of the hous
Tuesday morning was story hour at our local library. It was a little shorter then I expected and not quite as fun but it was something to do. This was the summer kick off. I look forward to some of the events they are having other weeks that do sound fun.&
In the last week we've had two of our three IEP meetings for the end of the year. And I have to say that I'm pleased with what we accomplished at each meeting. I would like to share some tips here, so that other parents can also achieve the same results wh
Are kids just finishing school, or just starting back where you live?
Friday (yesterday) was the last day of school for my children. My daughter will be a 6th grader next year and my son will be a 2nd grader. They went to school for two hours and watched a movie. They came home at 10am. I had planned once my children
Today was the Student Awards Assembly at the school where my children attend. I missed this last year so I was thankful when my sister reminded me about it this morning. It was at 8:45 am. Parents were welcome to attend but I don't think many knew about it
Today was the last full day of school it was also field days. It was supposed to be held yesterday but due to bad weather it was postponed until today. I got my kids off to school around 8am. I took a shower, got dressed, did my makeup and made my coffee.
I went to primary #school with a diversity of #people who either were able to make something of their lives or had the connections to ensure they looked like they could. One of my classmates' sisters ended up being the #curator of a leading London museum.
In school, history was not one of my favorite subjects. Thought it was boring. Met my husband while attending the University of Miami, and his enthusiasm for recounting historical tales rubbed off on me. He got me to like it! Been active on Googl
As of this moment, I am now busy printing of grades of my students in Philippine Literature. Although, there are still four of them who still had a problem but still I am going to wait for them because two of them promised to complete the requirements befo
“There is a good reason they call these ceremonies 'commencement exercises'. Graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning.” ~Orrin Hatch (Quote Source) It's that time of the year again. First, Sping Break happens! Next
Good day my dear personapaper friends! It's been like 3 days and 6 hours since my last post because I was too busy doing some #school stuffs before our semester ends. Or Shall I say before my last school year ends. I'm so excited to be graduating in #colle
I wouldn't say that it's the worst day of my life but would say that it is one of the worst. My mom's #laptop which I always used just got broken today. I am really sad about this since most of my #important #files are there. I will no longer be able to do
Bury an orange and a banana peel, a paper, a plastic plate, a tin can, a polythene bag and a piece of bread in soil to see if they decompose or not. Add sugar, talc, chalk, oil and salt to water and see if they dissolve. Mix lemon juice/vinegar with #ba
Florida was discovered by Ponce de Leon. When he first arrived he saw nothing but gorgeous flowers everywhere. Hence he named the state “Florida” which is the Spanish word for flowers. Everybody has a memory of their elementary school
I remember when I was in seventh grade. I think that's called junior high school. Up until the end of seventh grade, I neglected my school work in favor of games and entertainment. The first time I asked a teacher a question, the teacher nearly fel
I'm an old soul hence my choice to carry items in my online shop that wax nostalgic and say vintage. Sure, the bling and shine of newer things cannot be taken for granted but the old has an appeal of its own sometimes more so compared to than the most rece
Are Private Schools Worth The Investment
My father was not the best at being a father. He did have his occasional flashes of brilliance, but otherwise, parenting was not one of his finer skills. He knew that. My mom told me often that he wanted to be a good father, but that "
Today is the first Monday of the New Year perhaps marking the first day of work for most people like me but some parents are preparing for the children to return to school. In the UK some children return to school tomorrow at least in the area of London t
After my son's successful first day of school today it is my daughter's turn to go back to school tomorrow. I told her to fix her school bag and now she realizes she has a three page assignment in Philippine History class. She has been so engrossed with he
Well in a few hours it will be #Christmas. I got my Christmas gift from Persona Paper already :). I #wrapped all the gifts and got what we will be eating tonight ready. I will be attending #midnight #mass with my daughter since my mother does not feel like
When I first get up in the mornings, I grab a cup of coffee and sit down at the computer before I wake the grandchildren up for school. This morning I caught a County 911 message on Facebook about a winter weather advisory. What? I jumped up to t
One of the best things about my children's school is that they put a lot of emphasis on #reading at junior level. Every child is issued reading books every week and children have to read them under parental supervision at home. Children keep a reading reco
Having gotten the kids all back to school, I was hoping life was going to go back to normal this week. But it seems the powers that be are determined to keep throwing curve balls at me. The re-entry process is rushed this year, and we're already having to
It looks as if BC students will finally be heading back to school early next week. The teachers union has voted overwhelmingly in favour of accepting a proposed contract, and now we're just waiting for the provinces public school employers to do the same.
I know I haven’t been here in a week again (or so it seems) but I’m not slacking - I swear!! I took on a project for September over at Informed Sharing and I’ve been quite busy with that for this whole first week. Plus the kid AND the hub
After 6 weeks of chaos, constant noise, constant arguing, bickering, having to watch cartons and kids films, after constant demands for food/money/etc etc and hearing im bored for the 50 thousandth time, im finally alone. The children have gone back to sc
Fruit juice is a common item in a child's school lunchbox, but it really isn't the healthiest choice. Kids who rely on juices to get their fruits for the day are drinking a sugary beverage that has as many calories as the same amount of soda pop. They may
Yesterday when my husband, the Wolf, drove by the local high school he saw a notice on the electronic bulletin board that announced the start of a new school year on September 2nd. Of course I think most parents and teachers would be very happy to see that
Married at First sight TV show Review First of all, I'll give you an overview of what the show is about. I stumbled upon a show called "Married at first sight" last Sunday. Sunday is normally a down day for me as I'm usually in the house doing chores and
Every university the world over has a niche. Each is known for being the best in a certain field of study. In Ghana there are both public and private universities. One of such universities is the University of Professional Studies where I am receiving tuit
Yesterday we had some guests from the Philippines. There were six of them. It is the family of my wife’s best friend and former high school classmate. They are here on tour. It was exactly 6:00 pm when they arrived yesterday. We served barbecues, Fi
I have always wanted to homeschool because of the chaos that I went through while attending public schools. Though I had no clue where to begin, how to get the materials needed for homeschooling, or if I was smart enough to teach them what they n
Exams are the final hurdle for most students when the school year ends. After all the hard work they've put into preparing for lectures and writing term papers, that last challenge can sometimes seem insurmountable. But for a student who has worked steadil
Today is the last day of school for my son and school opened the door to let out students at 11:00 AM. To my surprise, I saw many police cars patrolling the streets around the school to break up groups that were rowdy. When I was young (you heard this com
So, my client/parent that I have right now is going to be angry with me. I am going to tell her really soon (possibly today) that on August 1st I will no longer be watching any children Full Time. That is when my children will be starting Home School again
Any drawing from my children is considered an #artwork. Thus, here's my daughter's first #art_assignment from #school. They were asked to make a drawing consisting of lines. #Zoe was first confused as to what to draw. So I told her to divide the paper in
