Hello tumblr, it is me again. It looks like Kelloggs is doing another book deal from getting specially marked boxes of their products. So, I am enlisting the power of the internet once more to attempt to get books again
since they haven’t banned me. The logo in the above image is what the products will have on the box and inside there will be a 16 digit code. Now, when you get three of those codes together you submit them online and they will send you a free Scholsatic book. Now I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m bringing this up, so here goes:
I taught first grade last year and got more than 200 books thanks to your help. My students were swimming in books and loving it. For this coming school year my principal has decided to place me in kindergarten, which means my students will be younger and coming to me with very little educational experience. These students have little to nothing. It is through generous donations (government, three square, various community partners, etc.) the kids get backpacks, clothes, shoes, free breakfast/lunch, and some school supplies. The school is not in the best part of town. I’ve had students who live with grandparents because their own parents are in jail, kids who have parents that don’t have custody over them for various reasons, and so on and so forth. Now I am trying to instill a love of reading in my kids, but they literally don’t have any books at home that they can use to practice their reading. Sure they get a library book from the school library at the halfway point in the school year (because they are so young) but it’s not the same, you know? They don’t own the book, it’s not theirs.
Here’s where you come in. If you happen to buy one of these specially marked boxes and don’t plan on using the code please send me that code through my ask box. If 60 people on here send me a code I’ll be able to get 20 books, which will easily allow me to get each of my students a brand new book of their own on the first day of school! Now my kindergarten students likely won’t be reading when I get them, but getting them used to holding a book and learning how to treat a book will be great so that when they do learn how to read midway through the year they have experience with a book. I used the Clifford books above because Clifford has great stories to teach about sharing, caring, and interacting with others while utilizing sight words as well. Even if you have no codes, I’d appreciate the signal boost as well.
So, if you happen to get a code please send it my way. I would appreciate it and so would my kids. I can’t take their picture with the books but I can have them write you thank you notes with excellent illustrations. They’re going to be five years old so expect something adorable. This promotion is going until 3/31/15, so there’s plenty of time and getting books throughout the school year would be fantastic! Thanks again for even reading this. (:
Signal Boost this angel. Always support those who are in helping and teaching professions.

Debi Jackson, who is the mother of 6-year-old trans girl AJ, was speaking at the Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City.
Contains: Some humour (hence the reblog here), discussion of genitals, therapy, and concepts of dyphoria and transphobia by a third party. The speaker uses correct pronouns (she/her/hers) throughout, even when referring to the time when she didn’t understand what being transgender meant/when she thought her daughter was a boy.

"As my belly grew, the comments got even stranger. I had secretly hoped for no reaction, for our choice to be as common as saying, “I went with the mustard instead of the ketchup.” No reaction would mean something good, right? That women in this country are, for example, no longer considered the property of men, even in name. That archaic systems are truly collapsing. That we can reclaim language that was formerly used to control us.
But it seemed, at least to me, that using a woman’s last name for a child threatened everyone. An older woman asked me if I was doing this to make a point. Why was all this doing perceived as mine, not my husband’s as well? At a party, a peer told me she was “diehard Obama” and then argued that her only real concern about using a woman’s last name is that you risk the ease of preserving lineage and historical records."
well, you know your hormones are all screwed up when you cry watching a video from 2011 of beyonce surprising a bunch of school kids in new york.
yes, THANK YOU, recommended blogs, OF COURSE i want to add the derpy cats tumblr to my feed, DUH.
