Dear Crayola - a follow-up

Dear Crayola -

Have you heard of Emily Post?  Well, it's rude to not reply to a letter that was written to you.  I'm not saying my feelings are hurt or anything, I'm just making an observation, that's all.

In fact, I'm so busy with teaching, blogging, and parenting and trying ever gingerbread flavored product at Trader Joe's that I didn't even notice you hadn't written back.  Seriously, who has time to watch a mailbox?

I mean big-whoops that the letter was sent in April just 219 days ago; it's not like I am counting, geez.  Wow.

Just in case, my letter did get lost in cyber-space, here it is one more time.  Just click on the image to link to the original letter, if that's not asking too much of you.

Whatever.  It's not like I care. 

I need to go check my Facebook status, anyway.  I'm sure all my friends are looking for me.



  1. WINDOW MARKERS?! I love it! Talk about a great way for students to enjoy math! I can see it now, the principal walking into my classroom and seeing all the students writing out long division problems on the windows. Or maybe even PBL on the windows like in the movie a Beautiful Mind. Thanks for this idea!!! Love it!

  2. This is a great way to help students store lessons into their long term memory! You could say "Remember that day we wrote on the windows... " there is no way they could forget that. This is a great way for students to get creative with learning.

  3. This is such a creative and unique way to write in the classroom, you could even have kids bring in old clothes to write on ( as long as they don't wear them for the test!). By using different surfaces to write on you are giving a reason for those things to stand out. Not to mention that this would be a great way to decorate the classroom, kids get distracted and look out the window to see the vocabulary words written right there!
