I love celebrations. I have decided that in addition to my weekly five on Fridays, I am going to try to do a weekly post on things to celebrate. I think everyday should be celebrated!
So as I was hunting up special days to celebrate,
I thought about waiting to share the following but then thought better of it.
Believe it or not today is
Worldwide Fight Procrastination Day!!!
“I never put off till tomorrow what I can possibly do — the day after.”
~ Oscar Wilde
Other events to celebrate this week are:
9-7: National Grandma Moses Day. Grandma Moses teaches us that we are never too old to learn something new.
9-8: International Literacy Day In fact this is the 50th anniversary of UNESCO's International Literacy Day. What a great day to focus your read alouds on multicultural topics!
9-9: My favorite is Wonderful Weirdos Day! Yes, this is a real day to celebrate. This celebration started in Austin TX with the Hippie culture. It's a day to celebrate the uniqueness in each individual. I think this will be my favorite day!
As a lover of trivia, I think a fun anchor activity for early finishers of any age would be to have them daily look up facts about that day to share with the class. Or maybe you could post the upcoming day for homework and let anyone who cares share something the next day.
Of course, this idea is coming from one that would be highly celebrated on Wonderful Weirdos Day!
Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools, located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus, I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
