Reminder: Lent is coming. Some resources here.
Slow week. All I have to offer is some random teaching tools of the week and some videos.

Tom Lehrer’s “Elements Song”
And for Potterheads? Daniel Radcliffe singing it – he says it’s one of his party tricks. Joseph said, “He’s casting a new spell!”
My 9 year old ended up eating dinner at a neighbor’s tonight. He came back and I asked him what he had. He waved his hands around and said, “Vegetable – some vegetable dish. I can’t remember what it’s called. Salanya?”
“You make it sometimes. Salanya.”
I swear, I have never made Salanya in my life. I asked him – what did it look like? Did he eat it with a fork or a spoon? Did it have pasta in it? Was it on a plate or in a bowl? By that time he was so distracted by something else, he couldn’t be bothered, so I gave up. I went out for a bit, came back, and he greeted me:
“I remembered what it is.”
(Have you guessed?)
