Bumping Up… plus, another FREE LAPBOOK contest!!!

SRUGIEWe’re bumping the difficulty of our “Word of the Day!!!”

Naomi complained that the words were too simple, which is reasonable, so… I’m bumping us up from Word-a-Day Grade 1 to Word-a-Day Grade 3.  No reason why not, right?  They’re both included in our TeacherFileBox subscription, and it’s not like she’s going to miss out on a whole bunch of fabulous “Grade One” words and have to learn them properly before she graduates high school.

So we’re going from this… image to this…  image

If you want to play along, this week’s words are impatient, appliance, appropriate and mumble!

Bonus:  One more free Chanukah lapbook to the first person who posts a comment using ALL the words, as they appear here, in a reasonably good sentence.  Because last night’s contest, I guess, was just too easy for some people – that’s what I get for having readers who are smarter than I am.

  1. With an impatient mumble, I search for the appropriate appliance.

    At first, I thought you meant to write a sentence with ALL the words in the boxes...What can I say, my brain's fuzzy, it's 3 am...

  2. I was so impatient when my appliance started working that I mumbled under my breath, but I was careful to use appropriate mutterings in case mom was in the room.

  3. I actually figured you'd had other comments before mine so I'm surprised! Thank you!

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
