Thing I Like About Myself
It's always easy to think about things you admire about other people but what about sharing some things that you like about yourself? I like that I am hardworking, caring, and loyal. What about you? Can you share three things you like about yourself?
What Do You Eat For Breakfast?
Have you ever heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? I USUALLY eat a boiled egg and SOMETIMES I'll toast a piece of bread too. What do you USUALLY eat in the morning?
Do you remember what the adverb USUALLY means? A couple of months ago, I posted a chart on adverbs of frequency to show the difference in meaning between different adverbs (always, sometimes, usually, never). If you missed it, please click this link here. It's very helpful to see.
When we use adverbs of frequency, it's to show how often something happens. The adverb ALWAYS means 100% of the time and the adverb USUALLY is a bit less than ALWAYS. So in 100 days of breakfasts, I eat eggs 90 of those days. But if I ALWAYS eat eggs for breakfast then in 100 days of breakfast, I eat eggs 100 of those days.
Take a look here at some breakfast dishes from around the world. It's so interesting to see what people eat in different cultures!
For a lot of people, household chores is the least enjoyable part of their day. It takes a lot of work to keep your home clean and organized but it only takes a few minutes to make your home messy again. My least favorite chore is probably washing the dishes. I don't mind cooking but I hate seeing all the dishes in my sink after cooking! Sometimes after I enjoy my meal, I just want to rest and not worry about cleaning. What about you? What's your least favorite household chore?
How does your family decide who does various chores around the house? Does your spouse do any housework? What about your children? Or do you hire someone to do these chores for you?

Alot or A lot?
One easy thing to remember today is that "alot" is never a word and should never be used!! Many times people mistakenly write "a lot" into one word, "alot." This is always wrong! Just like "a car," "a magazine," there is always a space between the two words. A good way to remember this is to think of "a lot" as the opposite of "a little" and you would never write it as "alittle."
"A lot" can be used as an adverb ('I eat a lot" ) or a noun ("I have a lot of clothes")
If you would like to learn about how to use "a lot" in more detail, watch teacher Emma's video here. It's a very helpful video on when it's appropriate to use "a lot."
Ways To Say I Love You
It's amazing what people discover these days. Some of them may be useful, some not so much.
I recently listened to a program talking about the many uses of a dishwasher. I guess it's not longer just a machine to wash the dishes for you, but can also be used to cook with! Apparently this is not a new discovery as it's been talked about for many many years. It's strange but so interesting!
Take a look at how it's done below.
If you search "dishwasher recipes" on the Internet, you'll come across so many different dishes that you could make in the dishwasher while it's cleaning your dishes for you! But this is not the only kitchen appliance that is so versatile, even the coffee maker can steam, poach, and grill for you! Check out the recipe here.
I don't know if I'll ever make anything in my dishwasher or coffee maker but this idea may be very helpful to me one day while I'm staying in a hotel with only a coffee maker available.
What about you? Will you try poaching salmon in your dishwasher or steaming vegetables in your coffee maker? Please share your creation if you do it!
