  • Maybe in the future I am going to blog about 'How not to be overwhelmed with Online Scrapbooking.' It will be based on piling and filing behaviors of human beings and the meaning behind them.

    There is a danger with this: If we ask all of our students to scrapbook, won't we become information overloaded?

A Little Humor First… A wise schoolteacher sends this note to all parents on the first day of school: "If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at school, I'll promise not to believe everything he says happens at home." Little Johnny had finished his summer vacation and gone back to school. Two days later his teacher phoned his mother to tell her that he was misbehaving. "Wait a minute," she said. "I had Johnny with me for three months and I never called you once when he misbehaved." Teacher: Where is your homework?
