All words when broken apart are a bunch of individual letters that when separated don’t deliver any type of impact, but when strung together, create excerpts that can resonate with the reader long after they have read a particular piece of writing! That is the magic within letters. They can unite to create a poignant piece of poetry, or a riveting edge of your seat thriller of a story. Letters combined into words can elicit immense emotional responses from an individual coupled with the tone and the manner in which one delivers them. These tiny insignificant letters are not insignificant at all! When presented in sentences such as, “Will you marry me?” They cause a euphoric reaction within an individual. They can cause intense pain when presented in sentences such as “You are fired!” Letters are powerful when united into words. Be sure to use yours wisely!

As a previous kindergarten teacher, I had the pleasure of introducing children to the magic created when combining letters to form words. This initial introduction for children to the concept of taking individual letters to create words, and from there form sentences, paragraphs, stories, and so on, is essential. Teachers are entrusted with the task of educating tomorrow’s leaders. The elementary process of connecting letter sounds together to formulate words may be something many people have long since forgotten about because it is practically innate in us. These new learners however must be enlightened to the secrets behind creating words using 26 letters. Their journey to incorporating letters into words has just commenced!

If you ever enter a kindergarten classroom you will see the alphabet prominently displayed for these eager new minds. Additional posters on how to correctly print these letters, along with cute eye-catching pictures depicting characters whose names begin with each letter of the alphabet to help students make the letter-sound connection, are seen gracing the walls of the classroom. Last year, courtesy of Pinterest, my colleagues and I took the letter craze one step further. We built crate seats for the work centers and found fabric depicting the letters of the alphabet to cover the seats with. This is what you see pictured above. The students now had another additional reminder of letters whenever they went to work centers! Letters may seem small and unimportant when encountered individually, but together their importance and strength comprises endless possibilities! Letters are small but mighty!

     Happy Earth Day Birthday to all! I wanted to showcase the beauty the Earth provides for us in this post!  It seems fitting that Earth Day is in spring when the world is lush with vivid colored blooms, the grass is a vibrant shade of green, and the trees start to grow buds again.  The Earth puts on a brilliant display of beauty found everywhere you turn!
     As a former teacher I always felt it was important to teach even my youngest students about ways to save the Earth’s resources so they would always remain plentiful.  If we educate the children of the world on recycling, reducing, and reusing resources, then they in turn can educate their children creating a cycle of wisely caring for the Earth, trees, plants, and animals for generations to come.  So today as we celebrate Earth Day, consider what you do already or can start doing to keep this beautiful planet of our healthy!

     If you already recycle, then that’s one step towards helping the planet.  What are some other ways to keep Earth healthy you might wonder?  I’ve compiled a brief list of ways to ensure that our Earth is around for a long time.  Ways to Improve the Earth
– Plant new trees to improve the flow of oxygen and beautify the land.
– Plant vibrantly hued flowers to add color.  This is prime planting time for various varieties of flowers!
– Create a compost pile so certain types of biodegradable foods break down naturally! DO NOT PUT DAIRY OR MEAT PRODUCTS IN YOUR COMPOST PILE!
– Plant a garden to grow your own vegtables.  The churning of the soil helps to spread nutrients.
– If you’re not already doing so recycle bottles, cans, newspapers, junk mail, and glass.

There are many small ways to help improve the Earth that will result in a positive impact! The animals, trees, and plants will thank you and future generations will be grateful as well!  So celebrate Earth Day by giving back to the Earth that has given humanity so much of itself over the decades!

Happy Earth Day All!

She’s always been there for you since the moment you were born.¬† Growing up she was the one who kissed all your boo boos, placed special inspirational notes in your lunchbox, and made you feel like you were the world to her.¬† She attended special events throughout your life, was your biggest fan and source of encouragement as a child,¬† yet allowed you to experience all of ¬†life’s offerings, and to learn from your mistakes.¬† She was there to inspire you to dream, to achieve,¬† to reach for that brass ring in life!¬† She offered comfort to your wounded young soul, when the world didn’t realize how unique and special you were.¬† Growing up, you wanted to be just like her, trying on her high heels, and acting grown up.¬† She was your idol at five years old.

In your teenage years your mom’s role became that of an advisor for your young, careless mind.¬† She gave advice on situations ranging from false friends, to mending broken hearts.¬† She had been there before and imparted her wisdom gained from experience to you.¬† She became a confidante, for a blossoming teenager, struggling to make sense of the world.¬† She supported your choices, allowing you to find your own path in life, celebrating your accomplishments, and offering you a shoulder to lean on when life took an unexpected turn.¬† She was front and center,¬† supporting your various interests, and usually driving you to lessons and practice since you didn’t drive until you were seventeen!¬†ūüôā¬† Her faith in you was unwavering,¬†glowing with pride at the woman you were becoming.

Upon entering adulthood your mom took on yet another role, that of friend.¬† When something occurred in your life, good or bad, she was the first person you called.¬† Every joy, every¬†setback,¬†she took in never judging, only offering a kind ear to listen to your triumphs and troubles.¬† My mom, my friend, is still my hero as a grown woman because she has the ability¬†to still make a grey sky seem blue.¬† She is able to right my world, when things seem bleakest,¬†by uttering only a few worlds of encouragement.¬† While we are separated¬†by miles now, when I pick up the phone to talk to her, I am transported¬†back beside her again.¬† Distance doesn’t¬† dull the connection we have, nor does time apart change how¬†I feel about our relationship!¬† No matter what happens in my life, I know I can always count on her support, love, and guidance to see me through whatever life throws at me!¬† ¬†¬†Looking back on my life, I see how much my mother influenced the person I have become today.¬† Because of her quiet caring, and ability to let me become the person I was meant¬†to be,¬† my life has been my own.¬† The ultimate act of love between a mother and her child is to teach them enough so that they may fly off one day on their own, caring with them the love and lessons imparted to them by their mom.¬† My mom has taught me a lot about life, people, and the world, someday I hope to impart her teachings to future generations!¬† Until then I know she will be here for me when needed, which is why my mom is still my hero today!

Thank you for all your guidance and love mom!:)
