I have wasted two evenings trying to make a grab button! I think they're a nice touch on a blog and I used a Digital Bakeshop design to create one that I love.

Every time I think I have it, it shows up five times bigger or with letters all over outside the place the code is supposed to rest. In the meantime laundry has piled up, birds have gone unfed and I have a headache. I'm not giving up, but I'm taking a vacation from trying!
Today we worked on persuasive writing again. I wasn't very pleased with our last attempt. When the kids work is not what I hope or think it should be, I suspect that something went awry with my teaching. I haven't done much writing for them in the area of persuasion, so I wrote an example of what I had hoped from them on convincing the Little Red Hen's friends to help her next time she would be planting, cutting, threshing, and baking bread. I thought I was very convincing. If I was Red's friend I would help!
I used some of our music time to continue with our persuasive talk. Since they had just come in from recess, I asked them what it was like outside today. They told me how nice it was. I said I’d like to go out, but I’d have to be persuaded. Someone said they’d bring me $100.00 tomorrow if we went outside. Someone else promised me chocolate! They had a hard time knowing the difference between bribing and persuasion.

|The kids got so excited watching this chickadee. They held sticks up in the|

|These girls decided to build a hawk's nest. I love letting them experience playing in the woods.|
I would really like to persuade someone to help me with buttons and blogging! I can’t get my post to format today the way I want it. Good grief! Technology is not my friend this week, but I’m glad you are! Thanks for stopping by.
