Finally, he named the Pukwudgie, because the stories his wife told of curmudgeonly William always made him laugh. When the Disney Magic Cruise ship pulled into dock at the Port of Tyne , there was excitement across the region. Seen as a hard-liner, he placed even more Dementors around Azkaban , but was unable to contain Voldemort's apparently unstoppable rise to power.
David M. Schwartz is the author of many popular math and science books for children. My 6th and 7th graders had completed units on ratios and proportional reasoning earlier in the school year. We were in the midst of PARCC testing and I only saw each class a few times and so we were doing an additional mini unit on proportional reasoning. I used this book to launch those ideas again. Students tend to naturally think additively and for some it is a struggle to think more multiplicatively when making comparisons.
While reading, students most strongly reacted to the strength of the ant, the growth of the baby, and all the animals with unusual eating habits such as the pelican, shrew, chameleon, and the snake. They enjoyed the illustrations and were straining to see them. They laughed at the illustration of the snake and the pelican. Some students jokingly compared themselves or their friends to the shrew who eats a lot in comparison to its size.
It was surprising to them to think about how fast they grow before they are born. After we read, we shared our favorite parts. Here is a few things the middle schools shared. I was surprised to find out how you would be taller than a mountain and heavier than millions of elephants. Afterwards, I had students do some of the comparisons in the book using their own measurements. It made me realize how using real world comparisons for measurements helped students visualize large numbers and get a stronger understanding of ratios.
One pair of students were asked to imagine how much food they would eat if they were a shrew. Personalizing the comparisons shared in the book allowed students to be engaged and interested in the topic of ratios. Sooo good! Apr 13, Amy childerley rated it it was amazing.

Books by Melanie Marks. Four years later, in , as a fifth grader, I finally became a real Girl Scout. The character of outreach projects changed at that point and we were challenged to engage in a series of award projects. I did my Silver Award project when I was a year-old seventh grader. This required personal planning and implementation on my part.
I chose to do a series of six food drives — three at my school and three in the community. I made flyers and signs, sent out emails, and enlisted friends in collecting food. C ompleting the Silver Award entitled me to begin my Gold Award project. This was a serious effort — equivalent to the Boy Scouts Eagle badge.
Gold Award had to be a project I would do by myself and was required to be sustainable, tangible, and to have some kind of global component while making an impact on the local community. I had to perform a required number of hours and to complete some fairly rigorous preliminary work. I was 13 years old when I started and had just graduated from eighth grade. I spent five months working on the project, beginning in June and finishing in November.
The project began with me doing a proposal describing what I would do, how I would do it, and the results that I looked for. T he most difficult challenge was attempting to ensure that I could effectively reach people in my community. Fortunately, I had a product that I could use to demonstrate that belief. When I was 11 years old, an English teacher, Mrs. A guest who had been staying with us at the time, Samantha, worked with the Big Sisters Program.
She read my little piece and said that people would enjoy it.
I read it to a family friend and gifted commercial artist, Brandon Chappell. I had never imagined that my little poem could ever become a book. People began downloading the app. Requests began coming in asking if we could translate the app and before long it was available in both Spanish and Mandarin.
The app is available in three languages: English, Spanish and Mandarin. The discussion points she wrote to assist educators and parents to create dialogue with the children when addressing bullying, acceptance, friendship, self-esteem, kindness, empowerment, and other life lessons with their children.
She feels these issues should be taught and discussed when the children are young instead of waiting until middle school and high school, because the behaviors seem to escalate into more violent and devastating forms of bullying. T he books teach anti-bullying in a fun and subtle way with rhymes because children love rhymes, Justine says. The apps have been downloaded in 76 countries. Her work has not gone unnoticed by the national media. J ustine has been a Girl Scout for 10 years. She has earned her Bronze and Silver Awards as well.
