Chocolate Break!

So, I've spent most of the day working on an activity for school, fighting with the computer QUITE a bit!

Suddenly, I felt the urge to take a break and try making these Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Bars. It's a recipe I found on Pinterest, and it uses coconut oil, which I have not used before (I do have coconut oil though, because I've intended to use it, but haven't gotten around to it...). I used dark chocolate chips rather than chocolate chunks on hand.

Anyway, my pictures are not as tasty-looking as the ones on the blog, but these bars are as tasty-looking as those blog pictures!

Guess I'll get back to work soon....

What do you do when you need a break?


  1. Those look yummy. I love Pinterest. I'm not sure what I do when I need a break because I feel like my I take breaks all day long during the summer. LOL The biggest distraction to my productivity is definitely social media of the TV. There's always something to check online and with Direct TV there's always something to watch. Not like back in the day growing up when we had four TV channels!

  2. I have been eating ice cream when I need a break! Not the best decision!

Differentiation and the Brain - Introduction

It's summer-time and time to get some reading done! Myself and my Tools for Teaching Teens collaborators are going to read and review Differentiation and the Brain, How Neuroscience Supports the Learner-Friendly Classroom , by David A. Sousa and Carol Ann Tomlinson.We will each be reviewing different chapters, and those blog posts will be linked together as we go. If you're interested in learning more about this book, check back and follow the links to the different chapters:) I'm going to give a quick review of the book introduction here, and then later today I'll be reviewing Chapter 1. According to the authors, differentiation is brain-friendly and brain-compatible! They describe the rise, fall, and rise of differentiation, starting with the one-room schoolhouses, where teachers taught all subjects to all students, of all ages, and HAD to differentiate - there was no other way! As the country's population grew, public schools grew, and students were separat

Love to Doodle (and a freedbie)

Exponents Color by Number For most of my school life as a student (and even as an adult, during PD), I have really liked doodling! During lectures, would help me focus, but also give me something to make me look busy, so I wouldn't get called on in class! I always hated being called on and almost never participated voluntarily:) I liked to draw cubes, rectangles, squiggly lines, etc, and color in different parts of the doodles. Download this freebie:-) I really wanted to make some color by number activities. Since I am not good at creating actual pictures, I decided to make my color by numbers similar to my random drawing/doodling. My Exponent Color by Number is most similar to my past doodles, but I thought it was a little too random, so I started using actual shapes. The Integer Operations Color by Number (freebie), as well as most of my other color by numbers are more structured, but so much fun for me to make! Computerized doodling! Anyone else
