It’s easy to confuse “affect” and “effect,” so we’ve put together a handy visual guide to help you remember when to use each word. We hope it has a positive affect… oops… effect on your grammar!

FINALLY.

For many folks, it’s graduation (or summer job) season.

In this week’s video, “How to be a Resumé Wizard,” we discuss how to write a resumé, how to get a job, and answer this age-old enigma: How the frak do you get a job if every job requires previous job experience?!

If you’d like to see more weekly “How to Adult” videos from Elmify, T. Michael Martin, and Hank & John Green, be sure to subscribe!

As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion

THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING

No thank you.

The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling

This is way cooler to look at than it should be

I told my husband to play with our puppy more. He sent me this.

Ok, can we just take a minute to appreciate how much work went into this? Keeping the puppy there, writing “Your dog really loses scrabble bad” all connected to each other, writing “growl” “woof” “snarl” all together, and writing “Im dashing” on his chip-holder-thing.
This dude put thought into his snark.

Does anyone use “Grammar Journals”? Essentially, on the left side of a notebook, you take grammar notes. On the right sides, students are able to try out the grammar rule/topic in some sort of a writing prompt or activity.
I like it and want to use it next year. I could also have my sixth graders glue things into the notebooks (hand outs/guided notes).

I like this idea, reblogging to try and remember it. 

I like this idea.

Ooooh. I like this.

I am going to try and do interactive notebooks next year which would include this. I think it’s an amazing tool!!!!

I’m using it as part of my interactive notebooks too.

Reblogging to try next year.

I’m listening…

Just a baby highland cow

I love Highland Cows so much.Also, I learned this summer when visiting a farm with my Y kids that this is an inaccurate sentence as Cow refers to a female that has had a calf.
But I’m going to keep saying it wrong because I like to be able to say, “aww look at the cows!” and it is easier than “aww look at the cattle” which is more technically accurate.
