1. Explaining Goundhog Day to a group of ESL students is very difficult. I think this is perhaps because it is a really stupid and absurd holiday.
2. Lots of interesting things about beaks, thanks to a guided reading book titled, “Using Beaks.” For example, flamingos scoop up water in their beaks which have tiny bristles in them. When the water drains out, little fish and other sea creatures get caught in the bristles. Then the flamingo has lunch.
