    Hey Educators, I am leaving my school in June, and after being with my student for two years, I want to leave something for their new teacher (I had them for grades one and two). I am looking for a simple, yet concise one page overview of each student. Something I can check boxes or circle numbers to give this new teacher where each student is at--academically, behaviourally, developmentally, etc. As well as a box for any additional comments. I've tried Google already, but haven't quite found what I'm looking for. Any sites you'd recommend, or do you have something you'd be willing to share? Thanks!

  • Puppy getting adult teeth--determining age?

    My puppy is 9 months old, I think. She was found on the street when she was super tiny and the vet didn't know exactly how old she was. I'm looking at her teeth to guide me somewhat, but don't know when the adult teeth are supposed to be finished growing in.

Some websites say 7-8 months, others just tell when they will begin to fall out. Her tooth just behind the canine bottoms are still just coming in and I can see room for them, but they aren't fully in yet. Is she just late with her teeth, or younger than I thought?

I've never used bluetooth before, so that could be the problem :-) The computer is using PIM Synchronization but it says my phone doesn't have that type of transfer so can I change it? Is it that the computer is older than the phone and they just aren't compatible? I figured since they recognized each other it would be easy, but apparently not.

She is not coughing and only sneezed when we were riding my electric bike--she likes to ride up front :-) What else is there that could be wrong? OR, is she going through a growth spurt and is just tired? I've googled a bunch of stuff but haven't got the answers I'm looking for.

She has grown over double her weight in the last month and I give her a bit more than the recommended amount of food b/c she's thin (not much more over, maybe like a 1/4 more). But she's lately been inconsistent with her eating. Yesterday, for example, she scarfed down her breakfast and lunch without any problems. However, at dinner she turned up her nose after a few bites. I then "helped" her by putting about a tablespoon of her food on the floor and she ate it, so we continued to do that-tablespoon on the floor, eat, repeat. Then today at breakfast, even though I heard her stomach growling when we got up, she was not too interested. I ended up giving her a few tablespoons of the food on the floor, some apples and bananas, a couple pieces of cooked liver she likes and and egg, scrambled without anything added. Then she comes thinking she's going to have some of my breakfast too! So I know she's hungry. So, my questions, is this normal? Will a puppy not eat? Will she starve herself? Everything else about her is normal-her behaviour-both good and bad :-), her bathroom breaks-she does both regularly too. So I'm at a loss. Oh, btw, she is 15 weeks and a ?? breed, found on the street and given to me 5 weeks ago.

    I live in southwestern China where there is no heating in the houses; the walls are cement and plaster (no drywall or insulation) and the floors are cement covered in tile (again no wood or insulation). Currently the weather is still ok, maybe 10 degrees C (50F) over night-maybe more or less. It will get colder soon as the weather changes and with living in an unheated house the temp can be 3-5 degrees lower inside than out. My puppy is 3 mos old now and sleeps in her "airplane" crate on a big pillow and towel (the pillow is a bed pillow-takes up the bottom 1/2 of the crate so she has a smaller "den" to be comfortable in. I noticed the door to the kitchen has a draft and have blocked it with a towel. I've thought about using a hot water bottle but wouldn't want chewing teeth to get to it. I lamp will give light when I want her to be asleep, and with an electric heating pad I'd also be worried about her chewing the cord. Should I tape up the vents on the sides of the crate, or am I overreacting??

I have recently been giving cooked chicken as opposed to raw pork as I read somewhere you shouldn't mix raw with kibble. Today no meat but I did throw in about a Tablespoon of apple. She ate some food and the apple but didn't clean the bowl as she usually does. BTW, She usually about a handful and a half of rice, handful of kibble, 1 or 2 Tablespoons cooked meat and maybe 1 Tablespoon cooked veg if I have it.

We have a fairly regular routine of 10pm-6am sleep but the last few days, including this morning, I got up to get her out and her paper was dry. I had to use the bathroom before our walk and then she went but I had to show her the paper (b/c yesterday while I was in the bathroom she went on the floor outside my bedroom door!). Should I be concerned, or does she just have an amazing bladder? BTW, she goes outside no problem and her morning pee is HUGE. She does eliminate inside when I'm not home (I work and she's home 4-5 hours alone) during the day.

    I have been "roped" into singing at my school with the international students (I teach overseas). I first thought, no problem, it's just a song. Turns out it's a rock concert and I have to sing 2 songs. They picked the first one for me--Avril Lavigne's "Happy Ending" and I have to choose a second one. The only other English song in the concert is by Linkin Park, "New Divide." So I don't know what to sing!! I don't necessarily want a song sung by a girl, but a rock song I can sing. I don't have a high voice, I am an alto (somewhere in the "D" range, if you know music). I like Linkin Park, Eagles, Bon Jovi, Oasis, RHCP, Pillar, Red, Fighting Instinct, POD, G'n'R, Hedley, Seventh Day Slumber, etc. Any ideas??
