The Jett Pack 2012-2013, My 2nd Grade Classroom

It's a new year!  I am still teaching 2nd grade at First Baptist Christian School but I had to switch classrooms this year.  Unfortunately, I had to leave my chalk wall behind.  I didn't feel like re-painting one, either.  I am also teaching Performing Arts (music and drama) to the Elementary students.  I will have to travel to another room for that and I can't decorate. The first thing I did before I moved was to pull all my books off traditional shelves, buy a ton of baskets from the $1 store and sort my library.  I had no idea how many books I had collected in just a short while.  As you can see, my overwhelmed fifteen year old son helped me sort.  I think we estimated around 700 books.  I've been back to the $1 store 3 times for more baskets! I can't believe all the stuff in general.  Here's a before shot of half my room. I'm still doing my nifty fifties theme but not quite as extreme.  Here is the after photo of the same area on my

World Best & Easiest Corn on the Cob

I have to admit it.  I make the best corn on the cob in the world.  And, I also make the easiest corn on the cob in the world.  I did a brief search on the internet and didn't find my recipe in the first few links I tried so I've decided to share it with you. First buy corn on the cob.   Second, soak corn in water for about 20 minutes.  Place corn on the grill.  Rotate once or twice.  Cook for about 45 minutes.  (Experiment with the time.  Usually, I cook corn with some kind of meat and just take the corn off when the meat is done.)  Next, peel husk and silks.  Last, eat!  It is so tasty and sweet that it doesn't need salt or butter.
