I wanted to share a great resource site to get your child/student excited about writing. This site is a wonderful teen site, where all the articles are written by teenagers. I encourage you to check it out and let us know your thoughts. We need to speak their language (perhaps not agree with it) bu t try to understand it, if we hope to take them to new heights in the classroom. TEENInk~ A wonderful magazine for teens written by teens.

While watching The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything this past weekend, I was reminded how these videos are so uplifting for all viewers. As I sat on the floor with my children singing along to the great tunes, I watched as both my son and daughter were engaged with the movie’s message.
All the Veggie Tale movies I have seen have incorporated wonderful songs. However, the most important contribution that each movie offers is the strong moral message. The moral or character attributes being promoted in each movie, is so creatively intertwined into the story line.
For more information on parent and teacher resources, incorporating the use of the many Veggie Tale lessons, check out the following article at Suite 101.
