Random Monday

• As you may be aware, we are having a big election next week.

I have been getting a lot of phone calls from pollsters. A LOT.

I am not a resident of Michigan. However, this has not stopped me from answering all the ballot questions as if I were.

I find this endlessly amusing.

• The other day, I bought a box of Ritz crackers and there were only three sleeves of crackers in it.

I was so incensed, I can’t even tell you.



• I discovered Penelope Trunk’s homeschool blog. It’s quirky, honest, and different. She is a career coach, but she also started homeschooling her kids. She has a lot of interesting views on homeschooling as a result of her success in business. I became enthralled and have been chewing my way through her archives.

Here’s an interesting post called Books I Hate. I wish I were brave enough to write a post about books I hate. Here’s one called Teaching Writing: Ignore Grammar. Here is a REALLY thought-provoking article suggesting that being an activist for change in the school system is a waste of time. Ooh, here’s another called You Don’t Need To Teach Reading.

I find myself agreeing that you don’t really need to teach reading, but not so much I am going to stop doing it. I can see how well Little reads after essentially getting the shaft for the last year. It’s amazing, actually.

I am going to be coming back to grammar in a couple of weeks. Get your advice ready.

• Happy Monday, y’all! Those of you in the path of the Frankenstorm/Snowicane/PERFECT STORM OF DOOM stay safe.
