easter 2When the kids were little and we were on the road, word finds, word puzzles and number games ruled. One fun game was making words out of Easter — this worked well usually for one kid but not all.

Wiki answers suggests: east, tease, teaser, rest, tear,tears, ear, ears, sat, rat, rats, tar, tars, seat, taser, tea, sear, set, star,  erase, east ease, ear, ears, eat, eats, era, eras, art, arts, ate, are, as, steer, seer, star, stare, seat, sear, sea, see, set, sat,  rate, rest, rates, tree and trees.

If you try it with Happy Easter, yahoo.com says you can add all of these: happy, prat, prats, pray, prays, rap, raps, pep, peps, perp, yap, the,there, yet, pet, pets, Pete, Peter, tap, taps, ape, apes, sappy, trap, traps, strap, straps, tarp, part, party, yeast.

No matter what words you make today, have a Happy Easter. At our house, we have Happy Eaters on a day like this. Mmmm, or nom nom as my kids say.

ExamThe Wall Street Journal and countless media outlets reported Education Week’s best and worst school systems by state in the United States last month, and the report on Yahoo.com is below:

Top 10

  1. Maryland ranked at the top for the fifth straight year
  2. Massachusetts
  3. New York
  4. Virginia
  5. Arkansas
  6. Florida
  7. Georgia
  8. New Jersey
  9. West Virginia
  10. Kentucky

Bottom 10:

  1. South Dakota
  2. Nevada
  3. Idaho
  4. Alaska
  5. Mississppi
  6. Nebraska
  7. Montana
  8. Arizona
  9. Oregon
  10. Missouri

But it’s not the only study. Michelle Rhee, has her own report, according to Huffington Post. She is the former Washington, D.C., schools chancellor and chair of StudentsFirst. Click on that link for a map of the U.S. with grades per state. Pennsylvania gets a D.

Frankly, I am way more interested in education reports than in daily national media coverage of Notre Dame All-American linebacker Manti Te’o’s creation of a virtual girlfriend debacle and whether or not Beyonce lip synced the national anthem. It’s time we all made education a priority.
