    BTW, I love the scoop neck! That was a wonderful decision.

    I know that my students and colleagues are going to be Peanut Butter and Jealous of my shirt. Please notify me and let me know when the sale starts again and I’ll spread the word. @mcastner1

    I’m not sure this is exactly what you are talking about, but one of the things I’ve done is start class by reading aloud. I haven’t worried too much abut engagement as I am usually only sharing a chapter/ or two at a time. An idea would be to have the students sketchnote the main ideas in the story as you are reading. How would they best represent the big ideas?

    Along these lines, I would like to stock a feminine hygiene basket in each of the girls restrooms. This could be good for everyone, as sometimes it is embarrassing when you get caught unprepared. Especially in MS. I’m thinking that having some deodorant and face wipes would be nice as well. I also discussed having some of these items in the library as well. One of the things that struck me about Zoey was the way that she had to help her mom pick and choose what gets washed. She selflessly picked items for her siblings neglecting herself. This needs to change.
