Bomb Boots

Tonight – these happened. Consider me the happiest girl on the planet. Happy Hanukkah/Christmas to me! They have the most amazing pointed toe and the block heel makes these 3 1/2 inches feel like nothing. I’ll be wearing these with a black shift dress and some major jewelry for new years eve.

You can find these bad boys at Forever 21 – and right now all boots are 30% off. Snag them while you can, ladies.


Happy Hanukkah!

How. Cool.

The picture below is of South Jersey’s largest menorah! Built in Glassboro, NJ this menorah is the most amazing display of Jewish pride I’ve ever seen. If you’re in the south jersey area you must must stop on High Street to check it out. Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends/readers!!


Rain clouds

As part of my unit plan I had to implement during student teaching, I chose to do an experiment with my students as an extension of a chapter on seasons and climate. My students LOVE science. They get so excited to explore, observe, and experiment. It’s really awesome to see them so engaged.

I had my students do this rain cloud simulation experiment. Before we started, we discussed briefly how the cycle of precipitation occurs. After, students were able to come up with their own hypothesis. After observing the rain cloud simulation, they drew a picture and wrote a few sentences on why their hypothesis was correct or incorrect. They did great!

This is how the experiment works: fill a clear glass or container with water. Add shaving cream to the top, covering the surface with a not-to-thick layer. Then, using food coloring (any color is fine – I prefer blue because students) squeeze enough drops that it covers a lot of the shaving cream. Wait a minute and watch for the food coloring to fall into the water. Voila! There’s your cloud, filled to the max with water, and then raining! Super cool and easy to do.



Happy experimenting!!
