Day 122

  Hi folks, I hope you are doing well! Grandma heard quite a bit on the news last night about Russia taking over Ukraine. This is a very bad move on Russia's part because United States will not allow for their power to exist and they will retaliate in every way possible upon this happening. It definitely may come into a 3rd World War. Grandma has a book and an activity for Ukraine and Russia for Easter. However, it will have to wait. We will have to finish two other books on Ireland and start on activities for the Pioneer's and Native Americans. Grandma has at least 4 more for Vietnam and Korea to finish up also. She has more days leading up to Jesus death to assign to you also before Easter

. However, I found a book on the power of Vinegar, and I already know what garlic can do. Therefore, I hope to give you as much information on this as I can. The first link is on Vinegar and Honey. The next link is on the PH balance of Vinegar, next the power of Vinegar with Baking powder, with Other Cleansers 1, and Other Cleansers 2. Then add the power of Garlic and what do you have. Not to bring in the value of Green vegetables and fruits to the situation. I will leave those up to you. A little note here, the book I read on the different Vinegar's and its power along with a section of its use with garlic says when it is talking about Vinegar Supplements to be careful because since it is the acetic acid of vinegar that is suppose to help people which is at a "level of 11 percent, acetic acid can cause burns to the skin. And at 20 percent, it is considered poisonous. Against what was said the acetic acid content actually ranged from 1.04 percent to 10.57 percent. They recommended it was best to go natural on vinegar. The information I read was out of a little pamphlet in my mom's home called The Healing Power of Vinegar by Gayle Alleman, M.S., T.D. (Publications International, Ltd. 2007). However, Grandma's mother has recommended it for years


.
 
Grandma will now move to the Calendar History of March 20 which is actually the first day of Spring considering with all the snow we are getting it doesn't feel much like Spring.



March 20 is also National Agriculture Day which Book (1) brings it out in Animal behavior saying, "Young (children) will enjoy celebrating National Agriculture Day by taking turns imitating different farm animals while classmates guess what they are. Also have the kids draw and color pictures of their favorite barnyard animals, then bind them together into a book."




The first birthday on March 20 is of Bill Martin, children's author in 1916. Book (1) says to "Use Bill Martin's The Ghost Eye Tree to introduce children to "round-trip" stories--stories that begin and end in the same place. Provide your (children) with circles divided into quarters. Then have them retell The Ghost Eye Tree by drawing pictures depicting scenes from the book in sequence around the circle. Tell them to begin at the top and go clockwise.




The next birthday on March 20 is of Mitsumasa Anno, children's author and illustrator, born in 1926.



The next birthday on March 20 is for Fred Rogers, host of the TV show "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood", born in 1928.



The next birthday on March 20 is for Lois Lowry, children's author, born in 1937.



The last birthday on March 20 is in 1945 for Pat Riley, basketball player and coach.




Big Bird, "Sesame Street" character was also began on this day of March 20.




An event for March 20, 1852 included Harriet Beecher Stowe's antislavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, was published.Book (1) says, "Harriet Beecher Stowe's antislavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, stirred deep discord among Northerners and Southerners before the Civil War. Ask your students to do a time line (which we have) beginning in 1852 with the publication of Stowe's novel and ending in 1863 with the Emancipation Proclamation."



One last event happened in 1883 in which the inventor Jan Matzeliger received a patent for his Shoe-Making Machine.




 
Now Grandma is going on ahead with an Irish book called "Clancy's Coat by Eve Bunting (Frederick Warne
& Co. 1984, 44 pp.)
 
Tailor Tippett and Farmer Clancy are the best of friends. But, when Tippett's cow, Bridget, tramples Clancy's garden, the two friends become enemies, fast. Only when the cold March winds force Clancy to take his overcoat to the tailor for mending does the friendship begin to mend as well.
 
Before Reading Clancy's Coat
  • Ask the children if they've ever had an argument or disagreement with a friend. Ask students to tell why it is sometimes easy to get angry and argue and much more difficult to make up. Tell the class that the book you are about to share is about two characters who used to be friends until an argument came between them. Now they are struggling to become friends again.
 
After Reading Clancy's Coat
  • Have the children explain how each of the men felt when Bridget the cow ruined Clancy's vegetable garden. Does each man believe that he is right? Is it possible that two different points of view could be right at the same time? Discuss.
 
Follow-up Activities
 
For Argument's Sake
Clancy and Tippett each thought he was right. Neither could see the other's point of view. Ask students to group themselves into those who think Clancy was right and those who agree with Tippett. After they discuss the merits of their points of view, have them role-play, reversing roles to try to see and express the other viewpoint.
 
Irish Tea Party
In Clancy's Coat, the two men mend their friendship over tea and bread, and the Irish, like the Russians, Chinese, Scots, and English, are closely associated with tea drinking. (The children) will enjoy celebrating their friendships with an authentic tea party."
"Visit a health food store to purchase decaffeinated Irish tea bags. Plan to serve tea with cream, sugar and honey. Then, help the children make an Irish soda bread, according to the following recipe, to sample with their tea (children can take turns measuring, mixing, shaping the loaf, and timing the baking, but you or another adult will have to do the cutting with a very sharp bread knife to achieve the thinnest slices):
 
Irish Soda Bread
4 cups all-purpose flour (unbleached is best)
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon double acting baking powder
1 1/2 to 2 cups buttermilk
1/8 cup caraway seeds and/or 1/4 cup dried currants(optional)
 
Combine dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough (like biscuit
dough) that will hold its shape. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 2 to 3 minutes, until smooth. Form into a round loaf and place on a greased cookie sheet. Cut a cross on top with a sharp knife and bake at 375° for
35 to 40 minutes. (The loaf is done when it sounds hollow when tapped.) Let cool completely before
slicing very thin and serving with butter.
 
Irish Stitchery
Because Tippett is a tailor" buy some sack dish towels at Walmart and find embroidery patterns to trace on or iron on the the dish towels to practice on with your children. Try to do a whole set of towels together.
 
 
That is all for tonight! Have a good night.
