Miss Frog Explains Crystals Beginner to Upper Beginner

Miss Frog knows about crystals and has written this post for people who might want to learn more. She discusses several crystals. Some crystals are for beginners. Very interesting stress relief!

Sometimes life can be stressful, even for kids; it could have many reasons, such as school, fake friends, etc. Crystals can help aid those feelings! I know it is hard to believe but because of the crystal’s vibrational energy, they can help higher yours! Believe it or not, you tend to try and match someone’s energy level without even realizing it, this is because you want to be ab\le to get along with them, but don’t worry this isn’t a bad thing; therefore you will feel the need to match the energy of the crystal when crystals have high energy for certain scenarios/issues you will want to match that energy and you will feel better. I know this from personal experience. Here are a few crystals to help with certain issues in your life and the level of experience you should have to use them!

How to use them:

You can meditate with them by holding them in your hands and imagine their energy running through your body; make sure you do this in a calm space!
You will need to cleanse and charge your crystals, you can do this in a majority of ways but the most common one being to use smoke to cleanse them, the smoke can be caused by sage or incense, you can charge your crystals with selenite. Those are just some common ways to cleanse and charge them but there are plenty of other creative ways to do it when you put your mind to it!
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I know it sounds crazy that a crystal could possibly make you feel better but if you believe it and give it a chance it will happen!

Why Ms Frog is a Vegetarian
 

Hi! Ms Frog here, and I’m here to tell you why I chose to be vegetarian! First off I really care for animals truly, I think they are beautiful creatures and deserve to be treated as such. (Warning! This is all my opinion and if you chose to eat meat I don’t disagree at all!, that is your belief.)

Elmer’s Christmas by David McKee is a sweet story in the Elmer elephant book series. While the adults work on festive preparations, Elmer takes the young ones up the mountain. Seeing their first snow, they have a fun time. They find a tree they can “easily return.” Good idea! In this story, the baby elephants want to give people gifts, too, not just receive presents. And Elmer, a star among the elephants, helps the young ones meet Papa Red. Miss Frog is a star who helps Miss Owl read and create art.

Rodeo Finn by Clare O’Beara Free Student Work Pages

Rodeo-Finn-Clare-O-BearaRodeo Finn by Clare O’Beara is a multi-genre novel for teens and young adults. Realistic equine fiction with nonfiction information regarding Ireland’s and Arizona’s farming, ranching, and equestrian competitions form the story. The two protagonists are cousins. Finn is from a small but productive farm in Ireland run by her family. She visits her Uncle Jack’s ranch near Phoenix and learns how large ranches can be in America. She finds out the several small buildings by her uncle’s house are where the workers live. The land is too big for one family to maintain.

rodeo-finn-book-companion-free-student-work-pages

O’Beara cleverly avoids the topic of romance by having the protagonists be related. Romance is not a part of this book. Most of the story focuses on work with horses and plenty of learning about western riding, different kinds of horses, Irish farms, American ranches, and rodeos.

Finn’s lush family farm supports four cows per acre. Sean’s family land supports one cow with ten acres of scrubland, and at that, the cattle are rotated to prevent overgrazing. Finn learns rodeo steers can sweat, live on tough grass, weigh about 2000 pounds, and resist tick infections. The two teenagers compare and contrast their knowledge throughout the book, which is a social studies learning opportunity. Students will widen their views of the two countries while reading.

*Note to parents and teachers: Finn’s best friend dies early in the story. There is some discussion of religious beliefs about this event between Finn and her mother. Also, Finn attends her first protestant church service while in Arizona. Religion is not a major premise of the book, but be advised the topic could come up in discussion.

The house Finn lives in has been handed down through the generations, as her father was the eldest son. By contrast, Sean lives in a wooden house. Finn learns how to country dance during her stay. Uncle Jack’s housekeeper, Luisa, has a son who breeds, trains and, sells horses, Rodriguez. One thread of the story involves the differences between English riding with jodhpurs, jacket, and helmet, from western riding and rodeos.

Rodriguez, Sean, and Finn all compete in the County Show, which is a rodeo. Finn has to buy a few clothing items and borrows some other things to wear for the competition. Luisa helps by doing some tailoring work on Finn’s new pants. The events at the show go well, and there is an unexpected event when Sean is in danger. The ending of the book is a surprise, even to Finn.

This book is excellent for students who are interested in horses, Ireland, and ranches. The nonfiction information embedded in the story will help students learn new facts as pertains to the characters.
