Book – Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary

January 28, 2016

Revisiting a classic book. :)

Sarah's Notebook

This is another children’s book I was re-reading via audio book. While the Ramona books are often seen as a series by itself, they are actually part of a much bigger series about the children of the neighborhood. As the children are born and grow up they have books from their point of view. As they “age out,” Cleary picks another character and that character takes on the point of view of the next book. Cleary switches her main character between sexes and families, but like recurring characters on a soap, neighborhood people keep appearing in a through line in the story. This series is a unique achievement in children’s books and a brilliant compromise between writing different characters and keeping a series.

This was one of that was read to me in my Third Grade classroom. I liked it so much I bought another book from the series in…

Calling Out the Presidents

January 25, 2016

Washinton and LincolnWhen I do a one-room school immersion session (the kids pretend to be kids from a certain time who actually attend one-room schools), one of the most popular activities is to call out the Presidents from memory. I write the last names of the Presidents  on the blackboard at the front of the room. The kids have time to study the names. Then they can volunteer to stand up at the front of the class to try to name the Presidents.

This could also be done as an activity for a party or event with a one-room school or Laura Ingalls Wilder theme. How far the President list goes depends on the time you pick for your party or event. My President list below is from 1796 to 1885, but feel free to pick any year you want.

Party Prep

Since you aren’t in a classroom with a blackboard, you’ll have to give out the list of names another way — maybe on a card-stock bookmark? Be creative. I normally set 6 President names for the first goal, but you can pick any number. I like to give more than the ones in the first goal because some people love the challenge. You don’t want to set the initial goal too high though because otherwise people will feel pressured to get that many instead of pleased with themselves if they do better than the goal or proud of the accomplishment if they make it.

Directions

  1. All guests will be given 10-15 minutes to work on memorizing the names. If the guests start getting antsy before times up you can call it early if everyone agrees.
  2. Ask for a volunteers to take a turn trying to call out all the names.
  3. In turn each volunteer  will take a turn at being the contestant. The current contestant stands up and says how many Presidents going for (e.g. 6, all of them, etc.).
  4. The contestant then will try to say the last names out-loud in order.
  5. Everyone else needs to follow along on their list to make sure the volunteer doesn’t make a mistake. If they do, it’s up to the rest of the guests to say NO!
  6. If the contestant can’t remember the next one, they can say pass and the rest of the guests shout out the answer.
  7. After each turn no matter how few they got, everybody claps.

As host or hostess try to name the Presidents first and it’s a good idea to miss one on purpose, even if you wouldn’t have because it lets people try out the pass and correct directions. Plus, by making the first mistake yourself the rest of the guests will be a lot more relaxed about trying since the first mistake has already been made.

Fairview Cemetery

January 23, 2016

Looking back on a visit to a cool Iowa cemetery.

Sarah's Notebook

Dodge Angel Statue Dodge Angel Statue

The next sites were close together near the Fairview Cemetery on Lafayette and North Second Street in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This is the same cemetery that has Amelia Bloomer’s grave. When she was starting to enter her final decline, Ruth Ann Dodge (Mrs. Grenville Dodge) had a vision of an angel offering her the elixir of life.  After her death, her daughters commissioned Daniel Chester French (of Lincoln Memorial fame) to create a statue of a black angel in honor of the vision. It was put on one edge of Fairview Cemetery, although Mrs. Dodge was interned in a different cemetery. (Why they didn’t put it near her grave? I have no idea.)

Just past the other end of the cemetery, near a striking overlook is the large stone that is Lincoln’s Council Bluffs memorial.

Information Literacy Presentation

January 22, 2016

January 21, 2016 was this year’s ILOC (Innovative Libraries Online Conference) conference. I did a new presentation called “Digital Natives?: Basics of Information Literacy.”

You hear the term Digital Native tossed around a lot about young people today. A true digital native would be information literate. Information Literacy, making sure people can find, evaluate for quality, and use the information that they need and think critically about it, is a big part of any library. This presentation will point out practical points that you can help people learn to evaluate and secure information. Topics covered will include website evaluation, how the Internet becomes an echo chamber of your beliefs, how to build better passwords, and the importance of a digital will.

Below you will find the links that I used in the program. I think you will find them interesting.

In the Kitchen With Laura Whipped Cream

January 18, 2016
Make Sure Mixing Bowl Is Chilled

Make Sure Mixing Bowl Is Chilled

In the Kitchen With Laura, both the program and the blog post series, continue to be very popular. I really enjoy them too, so watch for more.

The holiday season is often a time for special holiday foods and homemade desserts even if they are rarely seen in your kitchen any other time of year. If you’re not used to cooking one way to make your cooking special is not to reach for commercial whipped topping (aka Cool Whip), but to make your own whipped cream. It’s very simple to make and is delicious. Some people who’ve only have had Cool Whip might only notice the difference from Cool Whip, but if you’ll give it a chance you’ll find it’s much better.

Some Hints

To make it you need some of the Laura Ingalls Wilder cooks’s best friend, heavy whipping cream. Heavy whipping cream is also the best thing to use for making butter. The fresher it is the better, so buy some just for this and check the expiration dates (grocery stores normally rotate product so grab from the back but still check the dates).

Heavy Whipping Cream in Mixer

Heavy Whipping Cream in Mixer

Normally I use our mixer, but you can also use an egg beater. Cold is your friend in getting the cream to whip properly so my grandmother always recommended whipping it in a metal bowl that you’ve chilled. In the winter setting it outside for awhile is just the ticket.

I’ve given the measurements for a reasonable amount of whipped cream that can be consumed in a couple of days. It will only hold the whipped form for that long when refrigerated so don’t make too much. If you have a large party coming you might want to make more, but see how much this makes first.

Ingredients

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons of sugar (to taste)

Directions

  1. Put the one cup of heavy whipping cream into the pre-chilled bowl.
  2. Stir using either a mixer or egg beater. If you have a whip attachment for your mixer, use it.
  3. Watch the cream carefully. You want it to be thick enough that when you stop mixing you can still see the tracks that the whip or beater made. Be careful though because if you over beat it, the cream will turn into butter. Check regularly. Leave it a little underwhipped if you are unsure because you still have to mix in the other ingredients evenly throughout the mixture after it reaches the right consistency.
  4. After the cream is thick add 1 capful of Watkins vanilla or 1 teaspoon of any other vanilla and stir.
  5. Add the sugar a Tablespoon at a time. Mix and taste between adding more sugar. I like 3 Tablespoons, but you may find you want it more or less sweet. Don’t dip the same spoon back into whipped cream once you’ve tasted off of it.
  6. Transfer the whipped cream to another bowl either for serving or to a bowl with a lid to keep in refrigerator. Feel free to lick any bowl or mixer that you aren’t going to put back in the whipped cream you’re going to serve other people. (No eggs so licking is allowed.)
Add Sugar to Almost Whipped Cream

Add Sugar to Almost Whipped Cream

You can use genuine whipped cream anywhere you would normally use whipped topping. Puddings, cookies, pies, puddings, or, if you are truly lucky, steam pudding are always good choices to use your whipped cream. Keep in the unused portion in the refrigerator. You can expect it to last 2-3 days. Don’t make it too far ahead.

Trading Card 2016

January 14, 2016

Drumroll please! It’s time once again to reveal my trading card for the year.

This begin as a project in 2011, but due to some issues I didn’t get it rolled out as early as I hoped and card number 1 and card number 2 came out in 2013.

Previous Card Countdown

Card Number 1 shows me as young Laura ringing a school bell to bring Laura fans to my Laura Ingalls Wilder building, standing in the doorway.

Card Number 2 shows me as young Laura again, this time it’s fall and I’m wearing a wool shawl made on a loom. I’m holding a tin punch lantern like the one Laura describes in Little House in the Big Woods. This was a night shoot and took some experimentation, but I think it turned out well.

Card Number 3 shows me in the basement kitchen of the Masters Hotel in Burr Oak, Iowa. I’m once again as young Laura, but I chose this location in honor of my new program coming out In the Kitchen With Laura. That program is set in the 1930s, but I wanted the connection anyway.

Card Number 4 shows me in the other kind of Laura clothes — a Laura t-shirt and shorts. I’m doing one of my favorite things in Walnut Grove, Minnesota and wading in Plum Creek.

Trading Card 2016

AND now without further ado — this year we introduce Card Number 4 — once again I’m in a Laura t-shirt, but this time I’m in front of a little house…a very special little house owned by “seven tiny little men” Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It’s from the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride on our recent trip to Walt Disney World. Just proof that there are special “little” touches everywhere. I only had one Disney t-shirt so I wore my Laura shirts the rest of the days and got many positive comments on them. So let’s make that a thing. Let’s see your photos of wearing Laura shirts at Disney or other vacation spots.

Sarah in front of Snow White Cottage

Find photos of the previous cards here. I won’t be printing any more for previous years, but I still have some available of the collector cards from all years. Want some? I send some each year to each of the Laura Ingalls Wilder homesites. Ask when you visit. Or come see me present. I always have them available.

Report on New Project from Mary Ingalls Society

January 13, 2016
Bell Tower

Bell Tower

If you haven’t heard about it before the ISBSSS Mary Ingalls Society was founded to preserve and promote the history of the Iowa School for the Blind and its most famous alumnus Mary Ingalls (the sister of author Laura Ingalls Wilder). They maintain a museum on the site, offer tours, and put on a pageant each summer. Today they report on a new project. – SSU

IBSSS Mary Ingalls Society Reaches Their Goal

$6000.00 Fundraising Goal for the Lot 31 Project Met

In the 1800s a burial lot was purchased for the Iowa College for the Blind at the Evergreen Cemetery in Vinton, Iowa. Students were buried there through the end of that century, however no marker was ever erected on the site designating it was for students from the school or who they were. Six student names have been identified as being buried in the lot. Two additional students, who died in the early 1900s, have also been identified as being buried across the drive from the school lot. They also have no markers.

The Lot 31 Project was initiated in August 2015 by the Mary Ingalls Society to raise funds to purchase a headstone, have it engraved and installed on the lot plus two head markers for the students buried across the drive. The response of the community and friends of the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School has been amazing.  As of 12/18/15 we reached the goal of $6,000.00, and work has begun to order the marker. Keep watching for updates on progress and a dedication date.

 

Laura Ingalls Wilder Events Around the Country 2016

January 11, 2016

For a long time I debated if I could possibly keep a list of Laura Ingalls Wilder events around the country up to date. I finally decided that current information is probably best posted on a month by month basis so for current information search this site for the name of the month you are looking for and the word event (for example September 2015 Laura Ingalls Wilder Events).

I decided that doing an annual list of the major repeating events would be worthwhile. Let me know if I’m missing any. Most of these events are annual, but check with the group hosting the event for exact dates for following years.

Watch for updates information on my events page.
