The power of introverts - Susan Cain

http://ed.ted.com/lessons/susan-cain-the-power-of-introverts#review

Hey followers. I am naturally an extrovert and I have to admit it was not until I watched this video that I learned how as an educator I have been pushing introverts to be more like me, than be themselves.

Pushing children to expand their growth zone is a great thing, but to do it to much can be detrimental, which I just learned. I now want to learn ways to make my classroom accessible to both introverts and extroverts, so do you have accommodations that you can recommend for introverts in your classroom?

Mindfulness in the Classroom book series

by Thich Nhat Hanh

Summery:Initially designed as stretching breaks between long periods of sitting meditation, Thich Nhat Hanh’s Mindful Movements became so popular they’re now an integral part of his retreats. Based on yoga and tai chi movements, these simple, effective exercises reduce mental, physical, and emotional stress. The book Mindful Movements introduces the program to the general public. The ten routines are designed to be easily accessible and can be performed by people of all ages and all body types, whether they’re familiar with mindful practices or not. They can be done before or after sitting meditation, at home, at work, or any time the reader has a few minutes to refresh both mind and body. For those new to meditation, the exercises are an easy way to get acquainted with mindfulness as a complete, multifaceted practice. For current practitioners, the movements add a welcome physical element to a sitting meditation practice.

This is the second book of my recommendation for teaching mindfulness in the classroom.  Find it here  and find the first book here

I would have threw out 115$ shoes if I didn’t use the Toe problem one. God bless this post.

Lace Tambourine | Honestly WTF
This might be one of the sweetest wedding DIYs I’ve ever seen! If you’re looking for something a little different to bubbles, rose petals or vuvuzelas for people to use as you exit the church, these are a fun and pretty alternative. And even better, easy to make. If lace isn’t your thing then go for a colourful fabric (you could even monogram your fabric with your initials!). If you don’t want to make a ton, have some other options available such as ribbon sticks for a super fun festive vibe!

Anonymous said: Have you tried Matrix ITA Software by Google to search for cheap flights? I usually get good results finding super cheap deals. A few months ago I found an incredible deal to NYC from Florida through JetBlue. I don't choose specific dates--I look through a calender based on X number of nights and it'll let me know which day has the cheapest ticket. I don't think it's entirely fool-proof but I've always had such good luck finding cheap tickets and wanted to know your opinion of it.

Yeah, sometimes I mess around on there and try to find a cheap flight. It’s a really good site. It might not be the most user friendly, but it’s really functional, especially if you don’t have exact dates set for your trip. I recommend it.
