Magic is in the air

πŸ’šTUESDAYπŸ’™


Happy Think About It Tuesday!! Joey wants to know if you could choose any pet, what would you pick? And what would your pet look like? Would it have magical powers? Could it fly way up high in the clouds? Would it take you on a magical ride on a rainbow? Would you be able to walk in the clouds? Wouldn't it be nice if the clouds were all the colors of the rainbow? 


Joey says he would love to have a pet Giraffe with a unicorn horn, and it would be green with blue dots! He would name it Radical Raffie the long neck Giraffie!! Just imagine Joey and all his friends flying with Raffie up in the clouds on a nice sunny day! 


Oh, the things your mind can dream up!! It's great to get your mind thinking! You can think up all kinds of stuff! Your mind is significant when you feed it with good thoughts and magical wishes.

Molecules and Atoms

Facts about Matter

 

YOU DEFINITELY MATTER!! Don't ever let anyone tell you that you don't!! You are a very important part of this universe!! 

Did you know we are matter? We are made up of molecules, atoms, and cells. If an object takes up space it is matter. So, we humans take up space, making us matter.


Facts about Matter:

Definition of Matter:
Matter is anything that occupies space and has mass. Everything around us, including Earth, stars, and planets, is made of matter.
States of Matter:
Matter can exist in three primary states:
  • Solid: Has a definite shape and volume.
  • Liquid: Takes the shape of its container but has a definite volume.
  • Gas: Has neither a definite shape nor volume.
Composition of Matter:
Matter is composed of tiny particles called atoms and molecules. These particles combine to form various substances.
Inertia:
All matter shares the fundamental property of inertia. Inertia prevents a material body from responding instantaneously to changes in its state of rest or motion.

Remember, whether it’s the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the ground beneath our feet, the matter is all around us and dramatically shapes our world!





Joey says... My book JOEY SAVES THE DAY! AT DAYCARE is made up of matter, too, and he wishes it could take up some space on your bookshelf!!

A is for Air

Air Facts 


Each week on Thankful Thursday, we will work with a new letter from the alphabet. This week, we will share something we are thankful for that starts with the letter Aa.

It feels great to be grateful! And what an excellent way to start your day by practicing gratitudeComment with something you are thankful for that begins with the letter Aa.

Joey is grateful for Air. I'm thankful for ALL of you!!


Here is a list of words that start with the letter a:
  • airplane
  • arrow
  • automobile 
  • architect
  • alien
  • amazing
  • automatic
  • aroma
  • artist
  • also

Can you put the words in alphabetical order?


Facts about air:

Composition: 
Air is a mixture of gases: 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, with some traces of argon, carbon dioxide, neon, and hydrogen.
Aerosols: 
In addition to gases, air contains tiny particles called aerosols, such as dust, pollen, soot, and smoke, which contribute greatly to air pollution.
Essential for Life: 
Air is needed and vital for respiration, a process where living things take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide, providing us with energy to eat, grow, and live.
Carbon Dioxide: 
This gas is crucial for photosynthesis, where plants make food and oxygen, but high levels from burning fossil fuels contribute to global warming.
Humidity: 
Relative humidity measures the amount of water air can hold before it rains, with 100% humidity indicating rain is imminent.
Air Pressure: 
The weight of air creates atmospheric pressure, which is higher at sea level and lower at high altitudes. This pressure affects our ears during elevation changes.
Protective Layer: 
Earth’s atmosphere, which is filled with air, acts as insulation to maintain temperature and contains ozone, which shields us from too much sunlight.
Meteoroid Shield: 
The air in our atmosphere protects us by causing meteoroids to burn up before reaching the Earth’s surface.
Microbial Life: 
The air hosts bioaerosols, tiny microbial organisms that can travel long distances through wind, rain, or sneeze.
Air Quality Index (AQI): 
AQI measures air pollution levels, with values over 300 representing hazardous conditions.



Next week, we will be grateful for things that start with the letter B.

Facts about ketchup

Ketchup Facts


 

Did you know that ketchup was sold in the 1830s as medicine?


1. In 1834, a physician in Ohio named John Cook sold ketchup as a cure for an unsettled stomach and many other ailments. It was even sold in pill form. It would be fantastic if ketchup were a magic cure, but we know it's not!

 πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–


I am so thrilled that my beautiful niece Delilah, who just happens to be a character in my new book, LOVES IT!! That makes my heart so happy!


The following words are from a post-Delilah's Mommy wrote on Facebook......


A review from Destiny Katelynn:

"Safe to say “Joey Saves the Day at daycare” is Delilah’s new favorite book. She has already gotten her daddy to read it to her so many times. She is so happy to be one of the characters!!
This is a perfect book for little kids and a great read.
Lilah pointed to one of the pictures and said, “look mommy, she’s sad” and I asked her why? She tells me “Because she wants mommy”.
My aunt is the author of this book, and my 14-year-old cousin is the illustrator! I love how everything turned out. Make sure to get your copy now!"

Weird and wacky Mail Postage 1913

 Weird & Wacky 


Here is a weird and wacky fact for you!

Did you know that in 1913, it was legal for someone to mail their children through the mail? I never knew this either! It was a rare occurrence. All they did was attach stamps to their children's clothing. The children rode on trains to where they were being mailed and were accompanied by mail carriers. 

Information was found in a newspaper, and it reported that it cost just 53 cents for parents to mail their child to their grandparents for a visit. As people read the news stories and photographs that were being seen around the country, it did not take long to get a law passed making it illegal to send children through the mail. 

Things sure have changed!

Things to be thankful for

 What are you Thankful for?


Being thankful means showing gratitude for something. You can be grateful for many things.



Some things to be thankful for are:

Your Parents
Your family and friends
A house you live in
Food you eat
Your health
Watching T.V.


Anything you appreciate or have enjoyed, you should show thankfulness for.


Joey says he is thankful for teddy bears and good books!!
πŸ“˜πŸ§Έ


Remember to say thank you when someone does something nice for you, like holding a door open for you. If someone gives you flowers, say Thank you! If someone cooks you a meal, say Thank You! If someone picks up your toys, say thank you! If someone folds your clothes and puts them away, say thank you!

Being Thankful is a good character trait to have!! Always have a kind, thankful heart.
