Dear Dumb Diary - Video | Hallmark Channel September 6th

Jamie (Emily Alyn Lind) marches to the beat of her own music video. As an artistic and energetic glitter-loving diva in the making, the 11-year-old’s vivid daydreams about how life should be are often played out as full-blown musical productions. In her mind, Hudson Rivers (David Mazouz), the eighth cutest boy in Mackerel Middle School, returns her affections and Angeline (Sterling Griffith), the prettiest and most popular girl in school, and other perfect people like her, are banished so that average folk get their due. Real life, however, is somewhat different and, as a result, Jamie pours out her innermost thoughts in her cherished diary and shares some of her feelings with her beloved Aunt Carol (Laura Bell Bundy) as well as her shrewd best friend Isabella (Mary-Charles Jones), who may not be the best influence on her.

When Mackerel Middle School’s arts program is threatened because of budget cuts, Assistant Principal Devon (James Waterston) announces the district’s first-ever Jump-a-thon fundraiser. Jamie sees her winning participation as an opportunity to not only save the arts program, but to impress Hudson, and by beating Angeline, bring justice to ordinary people of the world. At the same time, she becomes the unwitting participant in one of Isabella’s schemes and her diary goes missing. As the story progresses, Jamie recognizes the importance of doing the right thing, learns not to judge by appearances and puts aside personal feelings for the greater good. She also discovers her own sparkling inner beauty, which was there all along. Does Jamie's beloved diary land in the wrong hands, or is she able to get her prized possession back unscathed?

Labor Day Monday September 2, 2013........

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Many people mark Labor Day as the end of the summer season and a last chance to make trips or hold outdoor events.

Vocabulary Spelling City Review...............

Recently I was given a premium membership for an honest review of Vocabulary Spelling City. I have never looked into Vocabulary Spelling City before, but have heard very good things about it from others. It is an educational website that allows teachers and parents to register for free and premium accounts where they can enter and save word lists. You can create spelling or vocabulary lists to help students, or import the lists already provided within the site. Having older children ages 11-15 I was afraid they  might find it more unappealing or geared towards younger students. This certainly was not the case, they especially the options available for parts of speech, geography,math, and science at and above their grade levels. From a student's perspective, the games are challenging , fun, and provide instant gratification that is not always available, especially at this age level.

I like some of the key features like sharing lists, importing lists, tests, record keeping, parts of speech, games, flashcard’s, and that you can also print handwriting sheets to accompany the lessons. Vocabulary Spelling City offers a free and premium version. The free version offers a surprisingly good amount of the site. The premium version of the program is actually pretty affordable, especially if you have a larger family. You can use this premium version for up to 5 students for $29.99 per year. We have only scratched the surface at this point in time but look forward to continuing with the premium version. If you are interested in getting started today, you can go to they are offering a free 30 day trial of the premium membership through 8/31/13.

Summer Slowly begins to Wind Down............

As summer beings to come to a close, especially for those returning to school in August it's time to  take advantage while we still can.
Here’s a quick list of great eco-friendly summer ideas to end out the season:
1.  Host a yard sale.  Get rid of that stuff in the attic or garage take the proceeds to a local shelter or green up your house.
2.  Turn off the TV and get outside!  Take that hard bike ride or a walk!  
3.  BBQ time!  Get your friends over for an end-of-summer celebration, just be sure to use all post-recyclable goods for the fare.
