Stand up 4 change day is all about taking a stand against all the name calling, stereotyping, and all the social labels that others chose to define you. While you’re here you’re standing up not just with the people around you, but with millions of others across the world. Every seven minutes somewhere in the world a child is bullied, and every 17 seconds a child commits suicide because of cyber bullying. Cyber bullying can happen through many social networks such as twitter, instagram, and facebook. When you post something, tweet something or say something to someone on the internet it stays there forever even if you choose to delete it. Some people don’t realize that whatever they say to another person that isn’t necessarily nice can effect them more than they would ever know. But social networks aren’t just the problem. With all the responsibilities and stress that kids have such as from their families, school, friendships and sports, kids are now feeling like they don’t fit in and they can’t fit in at school. This is because people are creating groups like cliques, excluding others and making them feel unwanted. Bullying is pressing in on us partly because the rise of the internet forced us to see it up close in posts on any social network. One of the old problems is that parents were too prone to look the other way when stronger kids picked on the weaker ones. Years ago, bullying was committed one on one. It used to be when you left school, you left the bullying behind. Now of days it’s a completely different world. Now it follows you everywhere. It is accessible to millions of people that have a twitter, facebook, Instagram or any other kind of social networking account. That is why I’m taking a stand against bullying of any kind. What I am asking you to do today, is to take a stand with me as well as all the other students across the world. Have your family, friends, and co-workers stand as well to help us make an impact against bullying today and also into the future.

Today I worked on writing the WAG (week at a glance) that Mr. Bishop assigned me to do for Defeat the Label.

here is my paragraph I wrote:

Defeat the label is a bullying awareness organization. It works together with a number of companies and organizations to promote an end to bullying of students who are to afraid to go to their friends, classmates and even their family for help. They reach out to students not just in the United States but all over the world. On May 3rd they’re teaming up with Brilliant Chemistry, channel 98.7 and many other companies to take a stand against all the name-calling, social labels and stereotypes. Covington students at Campus Marshes in Detroit along with 9 million others across the world will take a stand for stand up 4 change day to give their part to stand up to bullying.

Today I taught him 4 chords and wrote them down for him in my notebook and gave it to him. I wrote down the
A chord, the D chord, the E chord, the G chord, and the B7 chord. I wrote them down in the TAB style for him
to understand better because it's one of the most easiest ways to read chords/music notes. guitar page

how to make play doh-
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Playdough-Play-doh/#step1

good videos of how to make play doh-



Good website:
http://www.instructables.com/

Basic ingredient ratios:
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar (optional for improved elasticity)

food coloring (liquid, powder, or unsweetened drink mix)
scented oils
tupper ware



Steps to make Play-dough
1. Mix all of the ingredients together, and stir over low heat. The dough will begin to thicken until it resembles mashed potatoes.

2. When the dough pulls away from the sides and clumps in the center, as shown below, remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool enough to handle.

IMPORTANT NOTE: if your playdough is still sticky, you simply need to cook it longer!
Keep stirring and cooking until the dough is dry and feels like playdough.
I've gotten many comments asking about sticky dough, so please just keep cooking a bit longer and it will work!
3. Turn the dough out onto a clean counter or silicone mat, and knead vigorously until it becomes silky-smooth.

4. Divide the dough into balls for coloring.

5. Make a divot in the center of the ball, and drop some food coloring in.

6. Fold the dough over, working the food color through the body of the playdough, trying to keep the raw dye away from your hands and the counter. You could use gloves or plastic wrap at this stage to keep your hands clean- only the concentrated dye will color your skin, so as soon as it's worked in bare hands are fine.

7. Work the dye through, adding more as necessary to achieve your chosen color.
8. If you use unsweetened drink mix for color, test on a small ball first- it won't go as far as the "real" food coloring.

9. Play with your playdough.

10. When you're done, store your playdough in an air-tight container.
- If it begins to dry out, you can knead a bit of water in again to soften the dough back to useability. Once it's dried past a certain point, however, you'll just have to start over; thankfully it's not terribly difficult.
- If it gets soggy, you can re-heat it to drive off the extra water the dough absorbed overnight. This is usually the result of high humidity, but is fixable!
