Carnival of Educators, A Week of Firsts

Welcome to the October 27, 2009 edition of Carnival of Educators.

The absence of the Carnival of Education left a hole in my life.  I didn't know about Educarnival v2 but that one is silent right now too.  Anyway, I decided it was time to get another carnival going.  I am however looking for volunteer hosts.  I can't do it alone.   More info here.  I should also point out that I did not include posts that were not done by educators, hence the name, Carnival of Educators.  That can include teachers, college professors, homeschooling parents, school administrators, and tutors, and a select few others dedicated to education.  I am trying to make this a junk-free carnival.

With that said, we got a pretty good response for a first carnival, and I am happy to compile it.  Here are the entries for Carnival of Educators, A Week of Firsts.

Let's start if off with the first family:
Mary Ann Zehr presents Obama Keeps Track of What His Daughters Are Reading posted at Curriculum Matters.

First there's one, then there's two: 

Carol Richtsmeier presents Thing 1, Thing 2 & Fish Clappers posted at Bellringers.

Before you can help a child who needs special education services, you have to test them first:

Whispering Teacher presents When to Have Your Child Tested for Special Education posted at The Whispering Teacher, saying, "Hi, I came across your blog and I thought we could share articles :-)"

This college may very well be first on my son's list:

Herbert Aitken presents Pet Friendly Universities: 10 Colleges That Love Your Cat or Dog posted at College Stats.org.

Just about everyone's first science experiment is a volcano.  But there's a lot more you can do with baking soda.

Patti W presents Patti’s Baking Soda and Vinegar Compendium posted at Patti's Nursery School Class, saying, "Got little (or not so little) kids in your life? Want to learn some basic chemistry with them? The volcano is just the beginning of what you can do with baking soda and vinegar. Here's a sampling of what I do with those two ingredients in preschool and with my own kids at home."

This blog reminds us to think first, then speak.

Rachel Lynette presents Minds in Bloom: 8 Ways to Crush Creative Thinking in Children posted at Minds in Bloom.

This post is about putting others first, and yourself second.

Siddharth Garud presents Heroes and Hope of my India posted at Indian Eagle's Diary, saying, "2 of young inspiring educators from India. They were successful in their professions but chose to move into educating the underprivileged children. They are the heroes transforming India."

Every year, at yearbook time, I hear about a new controversy.  This is a new first for me.

hall monitor presents Lesbian student banned from wearing tuxedo in yearbook posted at DetentionSlip.org, saying, "I guess some schools think they can write the rules of gender rights."  But at least they are not picking on girls only.  Andrea presents Boy told he could not wear girls clothes to school at Education Headlines Examiner.

These final posts are from blogs that don't necessarily fit the theme, but they still have educational value.

TIC presents The Failure of Teacher-Centered Teaching in A Serious Man posted at Technology In Class, saying, "A reminder of the importance of student-centered learning through the multiple intelligence."

 Andrea presents Homeschool 101: Educator discount cards posted at Atlanta Homeschooling Examiner.

Fredric Cernick presents 25 Free Web Tools Every Student Should Use posted at How To E-D-U.

Alvaro Fernandez presents 15 FAQs on Neuroplasticity and Brain Fitness posted at SharpBrains, saying, "Here you have a Question and Answer session on what neuroplasticity means and how to maintain and improve brain fitness"

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of carnival of educators using our
