Home Made Slime

Welcome back to Learning Fun for Everyone!  I have to be honest, I’ve been in a very sticky situation since making this slime!  It’s ooey, gooey, and lots and lots of fun!  I spend a lot of time just playing and making all sorts of fun sounds.  This activity is easy and it’s fun to do!  You need to ask your parents to take you to the store and grab the following ingredients.  It’s super duper cheap and provides hours of fun!

In order to make the slime, you’ll need:

    1. Elmers glue
    2. Water
    3. Food coloring
    4. Borax
    5. A jar you can seal and “shake it off” just like Taylor Swift would expect
    6. spoon
    7. container to mix your ingredients
    8. Watch this awesome tutorial by Mister C

Mister C is also creating another video and plans to use 1 gallon of Elmer’s glue to create a gigantic blob of slime!  It’s going to be huge and mega, slime-tastic awesome.  The biggest dilemma I am faced with is what color should I make the slime!?!  I certainly could use your help with this decision.

Charlie XCX Break the Rules Parody

Mister C has his eyes on MusicMister C has been working to find the right song to use to create another Parody!  And…the wait is over!  As you know, Mister C has already created parodies for PEMDAS Style, What the Clock Says?, and now, this could be my favorite one so far, I Love School which is a parody of Charlie XCX’s Break the Rules!

We all know how much Mister C loves school and he knew immediately that a song like this was designed to have a parody!  Plus, I want to be in school every day learning new and cool stuff!  Seriously, I’ve had my eyes on a song like this for some time now and wanted to get the song posted to YouTube as quick as possible.

Igniting Innovation: “Grab the MIC”

The 2014 K12onlineconference is now underway and there are some cool things that are happening this year.  You need to check out the schedule here if you’re interested in learning about some new and cool things that folks are doing in the classroom to engage and spark creativity and imagination!!!!  I had the opportunity to create a presentation for the conference and discussed and shared my passion and love for the Music Integration Concept (Grab the MIC).  It was so much fun to create the video and share why music is so much fun and can be used so many different ways in the classroom.

Once the the video goes live at the K12 Online Conference, you’ll be able to watch Mister C’s Grab the MIC right here (Link will be created soon!).  I’ll be creating a link and including photos and details about the video here on this page once it goes live.  Until then….

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

By now, you’ve probably already heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! People all around the world are participating and are raising money and awareness for this devastating disease that impacts millions of people. Just recently, my lovely daughter, challenged me to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge. I really didn’t have a choice because this is truly for a great cause and I hope that by participating, I will help bring additional awareness to ALS as well.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Favorite Apps Padlet

I am always trying to find fun and innovative ways to engage students and teachers in the learning process.  I just ran across Padlet and I thought it would be fun to create a Padlet to show what our favorite apps are.

*If you’re a student, let us know what cool apps  your teacher uses in your class to make it exciting to participate.

*If you’re a teacher, let us know the apps that you find useful and interesting.  Most importantly, which apps keep kids engaged.  That’s why we are here correct?  It’s our job to make “Learning Fun for Everyone!”
