Generous Hearts - Silly in Sixth

You have to love people, and I guess companies, who are truly generous. Not just the "we're here for you and want to give you a free (fill in the blank) that isn't really all that valuable so you will be a customer for life" generous, but the truly, "wait, you haven't eaten this week? Here is my lunch" generous. And that brings us to Silly in Sixth.

Silly in Sixth on TpT 
Silly in Sixth is a teacher-author from Connecticut who sells products on TeachersPayTeachers. With just over 100 products, it is still a relatively small store (hey, so is ELA in Middle School with 130 products to date!), but this teacher-author has a great heart. Silly in Sixth will be donating 100% of the store's profits for March, April, May, and June of 2020 to a local food bank in Connecticut! Talk about generous!

The store is generalized in that it has products across the curriculum, but specialized in that the focus seems to be 6th grade. I haven't gone through all of the products available, so I cannot be sure about that, but even so, 4th to 8th grade teachers may well find the material useful for differentiation! So, please, take a few minutes and stop by SillyinSixth on TpT, and consider a purchase! My favorite item so far is the Narrative Nonfiction Writing - perfect for journaling during this quarantine!

What's Been Happening, and, Introducing a New Line of Resources for Writing Essays!

An ancient Chinese curse says, if I have it correct, "May you live in interesting times." Well, we all certainly do live in interesting times today! School districts, as well as entire nations in some cases, are still trying to work out how to best serve our students in the coming months as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Yet, here in the States, professional sports are returning and reopening, which begs a question: how are the football players going to huddle up while maintaining social distancing? Let alone the fans? The players may wear face shields on their helmets, which may help, but the fans? You can't even get them to keep their clothes on when it's snowing in the stadium! Do we really believe they will keep masks on? And will they really remain 6 feet apart? And how will you drink your beer and eat your hot dogs with a mask on? "Get hots! Get 'cher Red Hots!" Riiight... I have returned to Texas from Tennessee, and I have to say that it is good
