This Week in Ontario Edublogs

Happy New Year to readers of this blog.  I wish you all the best.  Continuing with the excellence of publishing in 2013, there’s lots of great blogging from Ontario Educators as we head into 2014.

Resolutions – Finding a new focus – A Year dedicated to a Plant-Based diet

You’ve got to love a person who devises a plan and sticks to it.  In this post, Zoe Branigan-Pipe describes how she decided to do a number of things for her health and succeeded.  It is an inspirational story of success.

If the topic is food, …

Recipe: Eggplant Peanut Soup

Brandon Grasley shares a story and a recipe from the streets of Sault Ste. Marie

Brandon

I’m not normally a fan of eggplant but I am of everything else in the recipe.  This might be worth a try.

One of the most important lessons I have learned.

Sometimes inspiration comes from the seemingly strangest places until you check the place and it really shouldn’t come as a surprise.  Kimberley Flood shares a story of inspiration for her personally and then extends her thinking into a classroom activity for her students.

I hope that she does try it and shares the results via her blog.

Cold, eh?

You can have a “woe is me” moment shovelling snow in -15 degree weather but all of a sudden it seems warm compared to Colleen Rose’s -30.  Her class is in contact with one in California – how do you describe how cold it is so that they understand?

I won’t spoil her surprise; you’ve got to visit her blog to see it happen in a Vine video!

Contemplating Changes

Aviva Dunsiger is planning some changes for her class for the new calendar year.  It’s given that there are new routines every fall with a school year start but she’s about to give it a change mid-year.

What is interesting to me and I think a good illustration of how connections can work was that Aviva was challenged for her plans by a reader to her blog.  The challenges are legitimate and Aviva took them on by way of reply.  Such a discourse couldn’t happen over Twitter for the sake of length of conversation so what better place than a blog?  This will be worth of tracking…

Memories of Making Math Music

While on the topic of Aviva, I’ve got to give her a nod for mentioning a post from a few years ago from Kim Gill’s blog.

From her blog, Kim shares some of the MP3s, that were created.  Enjoyable.
