June Calendar

June's calendar is ready.
I used the Just Chillin Moo Two Collab.
I have started a calendar challenge at MooTwo - come join the fun and get some Christmas presents ready.

Grab the calendar at SendSpace.

Don't miss the Blog Train "Faith in God" from earlier today - all of them should be up tomorrow.

The latter-day saint children have a program that encourages children to set goals. Link to the girl and boy versions. Collect this lovely kit that will work wonderful for any child's religious accomplishments. My part is small. I hope to expand this into a full kit - maybe two, but for now snag it at SendSpace.

Top Ten

Had to put these somewhere ... what skills do they need?

The top ten 21st century skills taught in US Schools

  1. Sitting still at a desk while someone in the front of the room lectures
  2. Preparing for standardized tests
  3. Changing what you are doing every 50 minutes, no matter whether you’d actually finished in 10 minutes or whether you needed more time
  4. Writing five-paragraph essays incorporating highly scored words such as “paradoxically”, “nonplussed”, and “notwithstanding” while filling nearly all the allocated space
  5. Answering even numbered questions (because those are the ones that don’t have the answers printed in the back of the book)
  6. Focusing time and effort solely on activities that will be graded, along with the related skill of sticking to a rubric when completing assignments, and being careful not to go beyond the rubric
  7. Eschewing tools, technologies, and resources that could reduce time and effort or improve the end result because that would be cheating
  8. Forming learning and work groups only with others of the same age, because age is the most important attribute for what a person can and should do
  9. Knowing and accepting your place, because your teacher’s and society’s evaluation of your worth as a person is reflected in your grades and test scores
  10. Avoiding the things you like to do, but doing what you are told, because learning and work shouldn’t be fun

Feliz Cinco de Mayo and Happy interNational Scrapbooking day!!

I have a little thing for you and more in the store. We used last month's lovely collaboration A Mother's Heart and created some add-on which include edges, clusters, new papers and more. Part is free with purchase at the Moo Two Designs Store and part in a blog hop. A Mother's Heart is still on sale through this weekend and all kits are $1.99.

Here are the 2 parts I made, only I can't remember which I sent up so ... here is part 1 and part 2. One of them is duplicated in the add-on.
Here are the other stops:
