A Time of Overwhelming Grief

Our hearts are broken

President Obama statement on the shooting in Newtown, CT

The Best Resources On Talking With Children About Tragedies is a  collection of resources compiled by Larry Ferlazzo, an English  and Social Studies teacher at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento. 

We wonder if school massacre will lead to new gun control laws in US

A Predictable Cycle? an excerpt from the NYT (July 20, 2012)
In the 24 hours following the shooting, many wrote about how Americans have become used to these all-too-frequent tragedies and the cycle of debate and blame that will follow. “Nothing changes,” writesAdam Gopnik in The New Yorker. “It will happen again.” (The satirical newspaper The Onion also echoed this idea.)
In a Times Op-Ed piece, “We’ve Seen This Movie Before,”Roger Ebert writes:
Should this young man  have been able to buy guns, ammunition and explosives? The gun lobby will say yes. And the endless gun control debate will begin again, and the lobbyists of the National Rifle Association will go to work, and the op-ed thinkers will have their usual thoughts, and the right wing will issue alarms, and nothing will change. And there will be another mass murder.
Do you agree? Will “nothing change?” Have we “seen this movie before”? What, in your opinion, could change this cycle? What do you think of Op-Ed columnist Gail Collins’s statement that, as with women’s suffrage in the early 1900’s and civil rights activism in the 1950’s, “nothing will change unless the people decide to do the leading”? How do you think that could happen?

Care or Fear is a very interesting blog post that reflects upon the tragedy in Newtown.

Angela Maiers also writes in this post about the shooting and how to help children deal with the shootings, tragedy, loss and death.

The Importance of Early Learning

How Frequent is your birthday?

Let's practise dates and numbers with this very nice chart. Click on this link for further practice
The birth data indicate a "holiday effect" in which there are fewer babies born on US holidays. In particular, in a great instance of statistical irony, there are fewer babies born on Labour Day than would be expected for a Monday in September.

Songs for children

Hello friends! There are a children's songs. We hope you like it

"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a popular English lullaby. The lyrics are from an early 19th-century English poem, "The Star" by Jane Taylor. The poem, which is in couplet form, was first published in 1806 in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her sister Ann. It is sung to the tune of the French melody "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman", which was published in 1761 and later arranged by Mozart for a famous set of variations.

The English lyrics have five stanzas, although only the first is widely known. The English lyrics were first published as a poem with the title "The Star" by sisters Ann and Jane Taylor (1783–1824) in Rhymes for the Nursery in London in 1806. The poem was written by Jane. It was the theme of the Andante of Haydn's 94 ("Surprise") Symphony first performed in 1792.
