Today is No Homework Day!

A fun holiday for school kids only if you can convince your teachers!  🙂  I discovered in the Washington Post article about fun and silly holidays . . . March 6 – No Homework Day!

At this point in the school year, you may be tired of homework. Share this holiday with your teachers, and they may give you a one-day break to play soccer with friends or finish the book you started on Read Across America Day, March 2. (We also learned of a No Homework Day in May, but don’t count on getting two of these.)   🙂  I’ll try it on my Spanish teacher!  🙂

March 6 – No Homework Day!

Meet the Tayra

Tayra in Costa Rica

And to continue my usual emphasis on nature and wildlife, here’s a link to another Tico Times Wildlife Article “Meet the Tayra” which is Costa Rica’s version of a tropical weasel. The linked article has more of the Guanacaste Camera Trap Videos from which the above pix came.

I will not copy it all here or translate it all to English, but you can see what I said on my Spanish Learning Blog, ¡Aprendo español en Atenas!

Some of the data was copied from Spanish language websites, but I do write simple sentences on my own now. I’m still a slow, slow learner! Yet it is fun! ¡Pero es divertido!

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.

If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.
