National Strawberry Day

Did you know that today, February 27 is National Strawberry Day? The folks in Florida know this I bet. Tomorrow the Florida Strawberry Festival begins in Plant City, Florida. Even though there is snow on the ground here in Missouri, just the sight of those brightly colored berries makes me think of summertime! Have a Berry Special Day!

My daughter, Ashlyn, makes the most delicious Strawberry Cake! It is her signature dessert and everyone begs her to make this yummy treat.  She uses Paula Deen’s recipe and it is Out of This World!

Favorite Strawberry themed books! I loved Strawberry Girl as a little girl growing up in Florida and I love it still. This classic book is the story of early settlers in Florida and their desire to grow and sell strawberries to the folks up north. It was not an easy life, but family and hard work seem to always make things better. The description of the setting and characters has always captured my imagination. It is kind of a Little House on the Prairie in the south. Everything from taffy pulling to ornery neighbors is here to take you back to a much simpler time.

  1. I taught in Plant City and LOVE the Strawberry Festival! Bryan and I were just talking this weekend about how it was coming up and we were missing it! The books you mentioned are perfect. Paula B

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!
