The Flame is HOT HOT HOT!!!

We discovered this group from a post on one of the groups I read (can't remember which one). They are AWESOME!!!! Every member has a severe disability of some sort, like autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, visual impairments, and more. We hope you like them as much as we do.

Here are Flame band members talking about their experiences:

For more information about the group visit their website.


Sorry for the long absence. We've had some thing interfere with our ability to do Video of the Day over the past couple of weeks. Things are settling down, though, as much as they ever do right before Christmas, so keep tuning back in for more of our VOD votes.

Veteran's Day, 2009

Today we watched three good videos related to Veteran's Day. They all tied for the "favorite" vote so I decided to post them all.

This one contains President Ronald Reagan's beautiful Veteran's Day speech:

This video contains testimony from a number of people talking about Veterans and our freedoms at Arlington National Cemetary:

This one is the poem "In Flanders Fields" done with interpretive dance:

November 10, 2009

We were going to vote for a Veteran's Day video today but then we learned that today is Sesame Street's 40th birthday. So we decided to take a nostalgic walk down memory lane (for most of the adults anyway) and go to this site to help vote for the best all-time episode of vintage 70's Sesame Street. The adults each chose their favorite video from the 40 nominated then the kids decided their favorites. We submitted all our votes and are interested to see which one wins.

We had a tie between "Rubber Ducky" and "Being Green." What is your/your class's favorite?
