Dear Students,
"Back in the day" when I was in the 8th grade, I memorized "IF," the poem to the right. I recited it for a contest. I can't remember if I won, but I still know this poem by heart, and even though I'm your grandma's age, I still love much of the advice in it. I thought you might like it too, so I added a link. 

You'll find lots of wisdom for your life in this poem.

Important note:  

Happy Summer! This is Billie, and I just so you know, this is not the easiest fill-in-the-blank in the world because the verbs are so precise. So congratulations if you have this down! (I personally think the nouns are easier.) If you're frustrated, the Preamble is easy to find with an internet search. While I'm here, as a left-handed person, I want to remind you that August 13th is International Left-handers Day. My Etsy Shop (Left-handed Writer) has two unique mugs. (I commissioned an artist to do two adorable images and will leave a link here in a day or so. Cheers from California to wherever you are!)

Preamble to the Constitution - Verbs

"IF" by Rudyard Kipling
(The full poem has the answer to the "if" - just remember the wisdom is for both boys and girls) 

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise
