This is honestly one of the best things I’ve had in a very long time. I started making it a few days ago for breakfast (along with avocado toast for healthy fats & a soy latte for more protein) and wake up every morning looking forward to it! The lemon adds the perfect brightness to this smoothie while the carrots add secret nutrients (seriously, try this with kids, they will never guess how healthy it is!).
If you aren’t vegan you can use honey instead of agave (I use whichever I have on hand). Almond milk would also be a great swap if you don’t have soymilk but I like the little extra protein from soymilk.
Especially this time of year when everyone gets their start-of-fall colds, this smoothie will give you a great vitamin & mineral boost! I can’t wait to try more sneaky-vegetable smoothies! :)
My department is deciding on new books for next year. We’re doing our own research, but I was curious if any of you have experience with the books? This is what we’re looking for: 1. Online resources 2. Online text book 3. What they have to offer in the teacher books 4. Alinement to the Common Core (all should be, based on what we’ve been told)
These are our options:
1. E.M.C.- Mirrors and Windows 2. Holt- Elements of Literature 3. Prentice-Hall- Literature
I’m trying to figure out what’s a good idea to do for my first parent night. I’ll already have had the students for two weeks before meeting the parents, so it’s not exactly like open house. The school told all the teachers that they would like us to not just go over the syllabus, but instead, give parents a taste of what it’s like in your classroom. Since I have six classes, I will have each “class” of parents for 10-15 minutes (five 6th grade ELA classes and one 7th grade ELA class). Some parents will have their child(ren) with them, but most will not. I’m a little stumped on what to do with them beyond the general greeting and introductions. I would love to have the students prepare something for their parents to look at during parent night…I want to give the parents a good impression and for them to be excited that their child is in my class! So, my fellow teachers, what are some of your ideas? What have you done in the past on parent nights?
Okay, guys. I need help. I’ve taken my certification test four times and have failed four times. I’ve purchased the book to study, I’ve taken notes, I’ve done online testing, and I’ve done more practice testing. However, I’m still shy 10 points.
Not only is it a blow on my confidence as a future teacher, it’s draining my bank account (it’s cost $1,200 so far). I know, ultimately money doesn’t matter, but I’ve got student loans and other expenses to account for. Then, adding on how unintelligent I feel, with the question if I can even do this…well, I’m getting quite desperate. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. The fact that I can’t be because of a standardized test is breaking my heart.
