No, David!
No, David! - David Shannon

Follow David as he does a lot of things that makes his mom say "No!". David learns at the end of the story that even though his mom can tell him no a lot it's all because his mother loves him. This is a great book that kids LOVE and will have them cackling. This a great book to have students make inferences with since there is not much writing or dialogue to the story. You could have students write what inferences they pulled from the story and what in the pictures lead them to believe their inference. Once everyone has finished their writing prompt you could have a class discussion to see what inferences everyone agreed with and where they differed.

Functional Resume

"Functional Resume" writing tips

There are several types of resumes that project skills, experience and educational background. Chronological resumes work best for people who have enjoyed a tight professional scope of employment. Curriculum Vitae are often used by job seekers in the legal and educational fields. Biographical resumes generally produce a complete chronology of accomplishments and are used for professional positions in government, as an example. The Functional Resume, however, is the answer to the problems encountered by college graduates with sparse job experience in the field of their college major, by people who have clusters of experiences in varied fields and are seeking work in a new area of career employment or for those with "gaps" in the chronological sequence of the jobs they've held in the past. A functional resume writing companies to point out particular duties that form a good venue for career changes. Functional resumes are also used by those leaving military positions or non-profit volunteers who managed groups of people, funding or events, but received no salary for their work. This type of resume is excellent for older employees who wish to avoid being considered "overqualified" for a job or people with a long absence from formal employment. Others with lengthy job histories may find a functional resume points out the most important employment achievements in a more brief format.

resume writing tips

Creating a functional resume requires forethought and planning before final presentation. A resume reflects who the job applicant is and what qualifications are valid for the potential job. A functional resume projects skills and experience by condensing overall job qualifications. To produce a functional resume consider the type of job sought. Configure job experience as it applies to the prospective job. Always write a resume as if you are the first person to read it. This helps avoid typos, incorrect information or data that can be more easily detected with a quick review. Collect the types of employment in groups that are inter-related to each other with an eye on important factors like managerial or supervisory skills. Each grouping should formulate a picture in the reader's mind of the type of capabilities and experiences that create a reason to hire you. When all the information has been placed in proper group order, read it one last time with the same eye as a recruiter. If there are any rough spots, now is the time to make the corrections. The content of the final version should flow smoothly.

quote 2019-01-18 11:00
“You're a special kind of something, aren't you?” Oliver whispered, leaning so close that Mason's brain immediately shut down and focused solely on his companion. And the hand that slid onto his thigh and gently squeezed. And the tongue that flicked out to briefly wet those tempting lips. “You want to take this upstairs?”
Good God! If he knew the Backstreet Boys could do that, he'd have belted out a little shameless 'If You Want It To Be Good Girl' hours ago!

The Watsons Go To Birmingham
The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963 - Christopher Paul Curtis

The Watsons go to Birmingham is both a heart wrenching yet funny and relatable book about the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham. As someone who as grown up in Alabama my whole life, I remember reading this book and laughing at some of the mannerisms Grandma had because it was something that I had seen from other grandmothers around me growing up. However, it also covers the tragic 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham. This would be a great book to link to Alabama History or to read before a field trip to Birmingham to give students a context to what they will see on the trip. Another activity that you could do with this assignment is having students write a journal entry on what they think it would be like to have lived in that time period for them. This would be a book that I would read with 4th and 5th graders depending on what I was linking it to.

Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

Duck! Rabbit! is a narrative between two friends on what a cloud looks like to them. One friend is adamant that it is a rabbit and the other that it is a duck but they come to see through making their own points on why they think that it is, that it could be either one! The book ends with them trying to decide what they think another cloud looks like and what seems to be starting the cycle over again. This a great book to use with perspective and narratives. I would use this book for a writing activity and ask students to write a narrative on what they think they would identify the new cloud as. You could also have students write why they think that it is a duck or a rabbit and tell you why they think that.
