Gratitude and Hummingbirds

Happy Thankful Thursday!! 

May your day be filled with lots of thankfulness!

We are on letter Hh of the Gratitude Alphabet! H is for Hummingbird!

Joey is thankful for Hummingbirds! He loves to sit in his backyard and watch the hummingbirds fly backwards, sideways, and upside down!! Hummingbirds can even hover in place! Hummingbirds are one of the smallest birds in the world. The Bee hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world.

What are you thankful for that begins with the letter Hh?

 

Here are some facts about Hummingbirds:

1. There are over 350 different hummingbird species.

2. Hummingbirds can weigh up to 4.5 grams. A nickel weighs about 5 grams.

3. The hummingbird is the smallest migrating bird.

4. Hummingbirds have no sense of smell.

5. Hummingbirds can’t walk or hop. They can only use their small legs to perch.

6. Hummingbird eggs are about the size of a very small jelly bean. The eggs weigh no more than a paper clip.

7. Hummingbirds can live up to five years.

8. The rarest type of the hummingbird species is the Leucistic hummingbird.

 

Here is a list of books about hummingbirds and being thankful:

1. Tiny Bird: A Hummingbird's Amazing Journey by Robert Burleigh

2. Chiri the Hummingbird: by Jo Blake

3. Harry the Hummingbird: by Patricia Thorpe

4. About Hummingbirds: by Cathryn Sill

5. Secret of Saying Thanks by Douglas Wood

6. Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora

Parents please be sure all books are child friendly before reading them to your child/children.

Joey wants you all to know how amazing it is to be kind. Always remember to say please when you ask for something and be sure to say thank you when you receive what you asked for. 

My book JOEY SAVES THE DAY! AT DAYCARE is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million, and Target. Be on the lookout for the second book in the series JOEY SAVES THE DAY! AT MEMAW’S coming soon.

Human Alarm Clocks

Happy Weird and Wacky Wednesday!! 

I hope your day is filled with learning lots of weird but true history!!

Learning is good for the brain and your brain loves to learn new things!! So, Joey wants to share a weird but interesting fact with you from history.

Have you ever heard of the Knocker-Ups?

In the 19th and the early 20th century in Britain and Ireland alarm clocks were not cheap and they weren’t reliable. There was a profession known as the Knocker-Ups or Knocker-Uppers. The profession was to wake people up for their jobs so they could get to work on time. Yes, a job that pays a human to be an alarm clock. Usually, the job was performed by the elderly and sometimes constables. They would use heavy sticks to knock on their clients’ doors and long bamboo sticks to tap on upper windows. Some were known to have used dried pea shooters. Some would knock on doors or windows a few times and move on and others would knock until they were sure the person was awake! The profession ceased by the early 1970s. What a weird, but amazing world we live in!! We sure have come a long way since then!!

Here is a list of books about alarm clocks:

1. The Noisy Clock Shop by Jean Berg

2. Maisy's First Clock: by Lucy Cousins

3. What's the Time, Clockodile? by Jonthan Litton

4. Clocks and More Clocks by Pat Hutchins

5. Telling Time: by Jules Older

6. Humble Math – 100 Days of Telling the Time by Humble Math

Parents please be sure the books are child friendly before reading them to your child/children.

Pizza, Salmon and The five senses!

Happy Tasty Tuesday to you!! 

May your day be filled with lots of good tasting food!!

Name a food you absolutely love? Joey and Jinger love pizza!!

Did you know taste is one of the five senses?

 

Here is a list of five human senses in ABC order:

1. Hear- Sound waves enter our ears and travel through our tiny ear canals that lead to the eardrum.  

2. See- Light enters the eye through the cornea. That light passes through the cornea and hits the eye lens. The light moves to the retina and the optic nerve transmits the visual information to the brain.

3. Smell- We inhale air that contains odor. That air binds to receptors inside our nose and then the odor messages get sent to our brain.

4. Taste- When you eat, your saliva helps break down your food. The receptor cells that are located in your taste buds sends messages to your brain through your sensory nerves.

5. Touch- Our skin is the biggest organ on our body and every part of our skin has touch receptors which travel along the sensory nerves that connect to the spinal cord and the signals are sent to the brain.

 

Here is a tasty recipe for you to try out if you like salmon. I hope it makes your taste buds happy. Enjoy!!! 

If you have any allergies to any ingredients please don’t eat!


Salmon Burger Recipe:

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons of olive oil; divided

8 cloves of garlic minced

1 onion diced small

3 6oz cans of skinless boneless Pink Salmon; drained

6 tablespoons of Mayo

1 tablespoon of mustard

1/4 cup italian bread crumbs

2 slices of bread ripped into small pieces

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

2 eggs


Directions:

Get all your ingredients together. Mince the garlic and dice the onion. Fry the onion and garlic with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat for about 7 minutes or until golden brown; stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large bowl put the drained salmon, mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, Italian bread crumbs, ripped up bread, 2 eggs, and the cooked onion and garlic; mix up well with your hands or a fork and form into 6 burgers. In the same pan that you cooked the onion and garlic in add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil and let heat up add the 6 salmon burgers to the pan and cook on medium high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until desired level of doneness is achieved; be sure not to burn them. Remove the burgers from the pan and set on a plate with paper towels to drain excess oil off them. Serve on a multi grain roll or bread of your choice with lettuce, pickles, cheese, mayo, mustard, and ketchup or whatever your heart desires.


 

Here is a list of books about the five senses:

1. Look, Listen, Taste, Touch, and Smell: by Pamla Nettleton

2. My Five Senses by Aliki

3. Baby Loves the Five Senses: by Ruth Spiro

4. Our Amazing Senses by Jodi Wheeler-Toppen

5. Taste (The Five Senses Series) by Maria Rius

Success and Kindness

Happy Mentor Monday!! 

May you find the keys to your success and find a mentor to help you get there!

Does anyone need any help with anything? Do you need a mentor to help you achieve a goal? Do you just need to talk to someone about something, but don’t know who to go to? Let’s all help each other out. Let’s engage and learn from each other!

If you have a special talent and love to help others then mentoring is for you. If you can share your wisdom with us or someone else please do!! Help someone out from the kindness of your heart!

I can help mentor and give you ideas on writing and how to get a book published for anyone that is interested? I can give you ideas on how to learn how to homeschool your child. I can also listen and be a shoulder to cry on if you just need a friend.

Definition of mentor= "advise or train (someone, especially a younger colleague)."-by Oxford Languages

Definition of kindness= "the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate."-by Oxford Languages


Here is a list of books on mentoring and kindness:

1. Spread Your Sunshine With Acts Of Kindness by Cheryl Shyne

2. Kindness Starts With You by Jacquelyn Stagg

3. Our Class is a Family by Shannon Olsen

4. Kindness Rocks by Sonica Ellis

5. Make the Most of Mentoring by Susan Colantuono

6. Mentoring My Elementary-and Middle-School Students by Todd Feltman

Parents please make sure books are child friendly before reading them to your child/children.

Joey says remember to always help out when you can and always be kind to others!! There is nothing like the love of a friendship to get you through!!
