Have a quick question for you about the fabric in your Downton Abbey quilt kit. The feather fabric #2. Is yours a bright/lighter blue or very dark blue/black? I am thinking the shop I ordered from sent the wrong fabric as it's the blacker one. Also just saw the Christmas line that's due to ship in June and Ebony will have a mystery for it. Woohoo. The Fat Quarter Shop has all of them online. (And their prices are less) anyhoo, just curious about the 'tone' of blue you have.
Deborah, I totally agree. My psychology degree covered many thing but I was fascinated with the dyslexia module. It was amazing my eldest son was and is dyslexic with an I.q. of 145. You cannot imagine the problems we had with the teaching staff, the had no idea how to deal with him. Intellectually he was years ahead of his peers but his written work was appalling. He said to the head teacher in one of his frustrations...I don't need to write, I will employ a good secretary, he could reason amazingly well. He now is a grown adult, very successful businessman, engineer and fly his own plain, that was a boy who could have been cast aside, if I did not have the knowledge. 1 in 5 boys and 1 in 10 girls are dyslexic to some degree. How often have we known someone saying oh, I'm a terrible speller, I hope this posting is of some interest
I have been complaining about the same sort of thing for years. A kid can be super in math but still do poorly on the test due to reading problems. It's really not fair. We should at very least be able to read the test to him. That's not going to affect his ability to do the math. We have a lot of Hispanic kids in our district here: Mexican, Equadorian, etc., as well as a large Jamaican population. Even if they attended (or supposedly attended) school in Jamaica, they come with almost no skills.
I agree. It is really bad in NY. Common Core has seized control. I volunteer in 2 classes (grades 3 & 4) so I saw the State tests last year. Many of the questions were absolutely convoluted. It took the teacher and Me 5 mins. to figure out what answer they wanted on a grade 3 math question. What hope did an 8 year old have? It's just insane.
Hi, Mary Alice. Since we have been chatting over in the BH group, I decided to check out your page. I'm a retired teacher, too. I also taught lower grades. Although my masters was in reading, I actually did a lot more math. I've never been to NM but I would love to see it in person. The closest I've gotten is Colorado Springs. DH & I were out there a couple of years ago for about 4 days so we could attend a wedding.
Yep. PT is part time. Get the doc to approve it or tell you what you can do. Often you can find data entry jobs, too. Those require good thing skills. Also, you can look for receptionist jobs. All of those can be found as part time positions.
