I'm very excited to be linking up with Nick's first linky party, Tunes Tuesday! What a great resource to teach grammar! He's so clever!

Here is the video with lyrics you may find helpful.
I like to show the video with lyrics first then have them read over the lyrics on the handout and identify all the figurative language.
Students love music and what a motivating way to learn!
Now I'm linking up with one my favorite girls, Holly, for Tried It Tuesday again.
My two Tried Its this week are inspired by Pinterest! You know I always pin these "helpful hints" and never do anything with them, well, because I wanted to "TRY" something for Holly's linky, I forced myself to complete a task! :O)
First up is my shower-don't judge, I had to get a step stool to take these pictures, so it gets neglected. We have hard water in Florida and it builds up pretty fast.
I had read on Pinterest that if you use vinegar on your showerhead, all the water buildup would easily come off. (Wasn't sure if I believed it!) I wrapped a Ziploc bag filled with vinegar around my showerhead and let it sit for several hours.
After a few hours...voila! I just wiped it off and it came out this shiny! :O)
(It doesn't smell great, but looks good!)
My next Tried It was to recycle an old Bath & Body Works candle jar.
First freeze it and let it get hard. Then use a knife to scrape out the candle wax. (The wicks at the bottom are glued on pretty tightly to be careful!)
Then peel off the side and bottom labels. If it doesn't come off easily, use Goo Gone.
Be careful when you wash it out, it's slippery...you may drop it and crack it like I did! Luckily, I had one more used candle! Oooh, I was so mad-which is why this post is so late today-had to start all over.
I added some mints and a label and now I have a cute container for my desk! Pretty cute right? All these years, I've been throwing away perfectly good candy dishes! :O)
You can use them in your house for cotton balls or office supplies.
I hope you're having a great week! I'd love to hear from you, leave a comment below!
***Just a heads up...if you're not following me on Facebook, you might want to start soon! I'm having all kinds of giveaways next week for a special event!
