INFO| Grammar Review: Allot vs. A Lot

ALLOT: (verb) to a portion or a share.
Example: Mother would allot my siblings and I time to play.

A LOT: (pronoun) to have an excess or a large quantity of a thing.
Example: There was a lot of food at the party.

*A common complaint is that "A Lot" gets mashed up into one word: alot. It isn't one word...or a contraction.

INFO| Review Grammar: Affect vs. Effect

AFFECT: (verb) to make a difference, to have an effect on
Example: If a student studies, it is going to affect their test scores.
*How I remember this is that since this is a verb and verbs are actions, affect starts with the letter "A". So remember the phrase: "Action and Affect begins with 'A'".

EFFECT: (noun) a change that is the result of some action or cause.
Example: The special effects on the film was fantastic!

INFO | CHALLENGE | Top 5 Cool Trees

So here is a list of beautiful trees I find fascinating. In a way, this is a fun challenge and a Top 5: I challenge you to grow a tree this year in your garden. Whether it is one of these following trees or a fruit tree, plant a garden. I also encourage it to be fruit trees to help the bees!

1. Persian Silk Tree

2. Dragon Blood

3. Silver Maple

4. Magnolia

5. Jasmine

Although not a specific type of tree, it is a style of tree. I like how it is a miniature version a full sized tree. If you want to grow one, according to some sites, you can choose any seed that can grow into a normal sized tree, but with some trimming, can be turned into a bonsai.
