George Washington

We started learning a little about Presidents this week.  Our unit on money was the PERFECT intro!  Over the last few weeks, the kids have been learning all about coin identification & the Presidents on each…

First up, George Washington.  We read the perfect little biography that kept the kids really engaged.  They were fascinated by the fact that G. Dub didn’t go to school!!  How in the world was that even possible?!  We created a circle map and gathered tons of facts about our first President and then carried over our new learning into a little writing piece. 

We were reviewing statement & question sentences {using the correct punctuation} so I had my kids write one telling sentence & one question sentence including facts we learned from our reading.  I also had the kids make their own little George Washingtons using half a paper plate, flesh colored paint {orange & white paint mixed together ;)}, construction paper, & cotton balls.  They turned out pretty dang cute and I was so proud of their writing!

It took NO time to cut out the hats {steps below} and the kids used construction paper to make the eyes, nose, & mouth.  The art piece to this little project was really pretty quick! 

For the hat…

Cut a 12x4 piece of blue construction paper

Cut off the right side bottom corner {diagonally} and cut an upside-down triangle on the top.

  3. Love the money bubble maps. We are finishing up our unit on Presidents this week was well and my students were so intrigued by the fact that GW didn't go to school and Lincoln went for less than a year. They just couldn't wrap their little minds around it :)

  17. Avukat dosyası, mahkemelerde avukatların dava ile ilgili evrakların tamamını muhafaza ettikleri, genellikle pembe renkte geri dönüşümlü ithal 350 gr kağıttan imal edilen dosyaya verilen isimdir.

    Avukatların daha öğrencilik günlerinde tanıştıkları bu pembe renkli dosya tek tip gibi gözükmekte olmasının yanında piyasada çeşitlilikler göstermektedir. Geri dönüştürülmüş kağıtlardan üretildiği için kolay yıpranabilir bir yapıya sahip olan mahkeme dosyası en azından icra dairelerinde yıpranıp dağılmayacakları bir kalitede olmalıdır.

    Piyasada bir çok isim ile adlandırılan bu pembe avukat dosyalarına; mahkeme dosyası, adliye dosyası, dava dosyası, baro dosyası, icra dosyası isimleri ile adlandırılmakta ve bu şekilde piyasada satışa sunulmaktadır.

    Tasarım olarak ön yüzünde bir tablo ile gelen ürün, mahkeme, dava, davacı, davalı ve vekillerin bilgilerinin yazılabileceği ve daha sonra dosyaların içinde kaybolmadan aranılan davanın bulunabilmesi için bir rehber haline gelmektedir.

    Klasikleşmiş renk ve tipi ile günümüzde ilgili ilgisiz her gören insanın ne olduğunu anladığı bu avukat materyali cüppe ile birlikte her hukukçunun mutlaka kullandığı ana malzemelerdendir. Bir dava için bir avukat bir hakim ne kadar gerekli ise bir mahkeme dosyası da o kadar gereklidir.

    Tam kapaklı bu ürün içinde müvekkillerin hayatı pahasına önemli bilgilerini saklayacak bir yapıda olması ve metal tokası sayesinde evrakların kopup dağılmamasını sağlaması ile aslında ucuz görünümünün altında yapması gereken tüm görevleri eksiksiz yaptığı da göz önüne alınmalıdır.

    Ülkemiz mahkemeleri filmlerde gördüğümüz avukatın jüri karşısında uzun tiratlar atarak müvekkillerini savundukları mecralar değil malesef ortalama 5 dakika süren mahkemelerimizde genellikle yazılı verilmiş, dilekçe tekrar edilir ve başka bir tarihe ertelenir. Uzun mahkeme süreleri yazılı olarak devam eder ve bu uzun süreçteki tüm dilekçeler, evraklar, kanıtlar bu pembe mahkeme dosyasının içine girer.
