Non-Sequitur: FREE Frog & Toad Button-Sorting Math!

image We re-read the wonderful Frog & Toad story A Lost Button this afternoon (from Frog and Toad Are Friends).  I love this story!  I really like the whole book, actually… I picked up all three paperbacks as a boxed set for no particular reason and I’m very glad I did.  (We also have this particular volume in Hebrew!)

Anyway, I thought this would be a perfect theme for a imagequick math lesson to wrap up our week tomorrow, with the help of this free download page.  We used it once last year, but it was a while ago, and I think I only did it with GZ while Naomi Rivka worked on something else.

I created two activities of my own to go along with the page.  You’ll need to download the first page, print it out, then cut out the buttons and sort them for the first activity sheet.  Then, on the second sheet, you can reuse the buttons by gluing them on to Toad’s jacket.

For both these sheets, as usual, I have mercilessly and shamelessly borrowed images that I don’t own.  I figure it’ll make people love Frog & Toad so much they go out and buy the books, so ultimately, I have done the world – and the publishers – a favour.

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
