Spell for good grades

What you’ll need:

  • orange candle
  • mint (leaf or oil)
  • green piece of jewelry or clothing (to keep on you)
  • needle (or something to carve the candle

Carve your name into the top of the orange candle, and an “A” on the side. Rub some mint oil on the sides of the candle, or rub the leaves on the candle. Put on your green piece of jewelry, or clothing, or a green stone can work too. 

The color orange, when burned is to help bring about desired results. Mint brings good luck, and help to make you more alert because of the sharp smell. 

Burn the candle until your name is melted off the candle and get the image of you holding an “A” paper in your hand while it melts. Put some mint oil on the clothes, or jewelry, or stone. Wear these on test days, or quiz days. 


hi! welcome to my first printable set! 

first, I have made a grade tracker- 

ESSENTIAL to motivation. I have used these types of things since grade 5 and it’s lovely when you plot your percentages. maybe I’ll make a printable for that but for now a simple chart. write in your predicted percentages, actual percentages, assignment names and any notes!

next, I have made a study schedule- 

great for planning and organizing your time efficiently. it helps me keep on track and I hope it will help you too! you can plan out 7 days and 12 hours each day!


this is a great resource! definitely one of my favorites. this is another essential tool for planning your time. as an athlete and a musician AND a student I have a lot of extracurriculars and commitments. this planner caters to busy students making it unique. also you can track your water and food intake, useful for health conscious students as well.

hope you enjoy! click on the links and press the little printer at the top to actually PRINT the google drive files. have a great week! xx

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?
—  Luke 12:27-28 (NKJV)
for all the gifted & talented kids and teenagers out there

There is more to being gifted than just your intelligence

You don’t have to do an IQ test to know that you are gifted

Your grades don’t reflect your intelligence

You don’t need to prove your giftedness with grades too

Your sensitivity doesn’t invalidate your intelligence

Your Ld doesn’t make you any less gifted

& Your short attention span doesn’t either

Math isn’t everything

Having questions don’t mean you are stupid

You shouldn’t be ashamed of knowing and wanting to learn

You shouldn’t feel weird for liking science documentaries and learning about your favourite subjects in your spear time


St Marys Church Ellel by Barry Smith
Via Flickr:
St. Mary’s Chapel, Ellel Grange, was built by Alderman Preston and consecrated in 1873. The Chapel is unused and in a state of disrepair. The site lies to the south of Ellel Grange on the edge of a well wooded knoll. It is completely screened from all sides by mature woodland with access to the site being via a long single track access road on the western side of the A6. The site itself contains the existing Chapel building (formerly known as the Church of St. Mary and now known as Kings Lee Chapel) and the detached small Mausoleum building. These buildings are redundant at present and are in the ownership of Ellel Ministries, who have been seeking a viable use of the Grade II* listed Chapel building which is in need of repair and is currently on the English Heritage Buildings at risk register in the priority C category.
