Viparita Karani yoga pose - Legs up the wall - Encourages circulation of blood and lymph from the feet and legs. Bathes the abdomen in fresh blood, stimulating the digestive organs. Soothes the nervous system, allowing your body to shift its attention from warding off stress to daily bodily functions, including detox. Note the pillow/bolster she is using.
Off the Wall Westward Expansion Lesson - Guest blog post by Joan Claspill on Corkboard Connections - Students roam through an "Art Gallery" of pictures related to the lesson, taking notes and recording inferences. Great way to integrate social studies and literacy!
Lap Your Cut-In Onto the Walls - If you're planning to paint the walls too, lap the paint onto the walls a little bit. Then when you paint the walls, you can err on the side of leaving a little ceiling color showing when you cut in and it won't be noticeable. Some painters like to skip this cutting-in step and save time by mashing the roller into the corner instead, but this method is sloppy, builds up excess paint in the corner and can leave runs or a thick paint line on the wall.
