Humus is found in the soil; it's made of dead plant and animal remains and is good for plant growth. HU-mus; starts like HU-man.
Hummus is found in the grocery store. It is made of chickpeas and is tasty on pita chips. Hummus starts like Hum. As in ho-hum, this pita chip is boring without any hummus on it.
These two are not the same thing.
Unless you're a kid.
They spent a reeeeaaaally long time calling humus hummus, and when I explained the difference, one kid shouted, "I HATE it on toast."
Humus or hummus?
Cause either one might be pretty yucky on toast.
In other news,
I've spent the last several days working on my Jamie O'Rourke and the Pooka literacy activity unit, and I'm excited because I'm actually done in time to use it!
We're going to work on it the last week before spring break she said, drooling.
Cause that's right before St. Patrick's Day.
Well, not any kids, anyway.
Hunny, look out!
I've put it up on TPT AND Teacher's Notebook, and if you remember (even if you don't), I'm having a sale at TPT! So you can get it (and everything else in my store) for 10% off :)
And it's already very very reasonably priced if I do say so myself.
Grab it from TPT or Teacher's Notebook.
It's seventeen pages of Irishy goodness.
