Actually, I can't imagine teaching science without saying "Glory to God!" again and again.
"Science and religion have nothing to do with each other," said my private student, as she quoted her Catholic school science & religion teacher.
Sister: Carey J., Puck of Pook's Hill looks fascinating. So, I looked it up and found a LibriVox recording on Internet Archive.

What works did you read for them? · 12 hours ago
Here is my catalog page. The short works in collections, I did to practice using the software and microphone. The longer works are solo projects, in which I try to avoid adding emotion. When reading for children, of course, I add as much as I can, while hoping to retain some monastic dignity, although it may be too late for that.

If I have to choose between fun and beautiful, I'd like to go with beautiful for this event.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn had crossed my mind as well. I'll have to take a look at that.
Matt, what has worked well for you at school?
FightinPhilly, I do like reading poetry aloud. Do you have any suggestions of titles by those poets? I was thinking of Poe, but for young children?
Thanks again, everyone, for these great suggestions!
Oh, no, Lance! I'm starting to remember. I may have actually attended a concert. They did have a couple of hits in the mid 70's, which is probably when I saw them.
Unrelated story: I now live in NYC, where we have steam radiators. But growing up in AZ, we did not. Anyway, listening to the radiators banging when there is too much water circulating, I'm reminded of the synthesizer music we once, again in the 70's, thought so avant garde. What if there were no synthesizers, just poor Germans recording their radiators and selling albums to...I don't know...stupid?...American teens?
I think I was a fan of theirs...once...but I don't remember why. In fact, I don't remember the 80's very well, although the math says I was in my 20's. Some things are better left forgotten.
Oh, thank you! You're going to make this great fun for me!
May they rest in peace!
Thank you, Betty. The body of the post was an email I received from a friend, a single mom, today. I'll save the advice and share it with her soon.
Great post! I'm saving and sharing this list, since students around here have zero idea of any of this. Thank you!
John, thank you! And, with that I'll close the computer for the night with a big smile on my face.
