Decorating With Crates

Hi Loves, I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. We had a wonderful relaxing 3 day weekend without leaving the house much (my favorite kind). I had a chance to put together this blog post for you with TONS of Inspiration on "HOW TO DECORATE WITH CRATES" And I am talking all sorts of crates! Soda Crates,Vintage Crates, Berry Crates, old Military Crates,  ....well you get my drift! 

As aways, I tried real hard to link back to the original source of the pictures. 
Please let me know if I made a mistake somewhere and I will change it ASAP. 
The first dozen of pics are actually my own crates, after that 
TONS of Inspiration from all over Blog Land!!!!

  29. التعليم عملية تيسير التعلم أي اكتساب المعرفة والمهارات والمبادئ والمعتقدات والعادات. من وسائل التعليم هناك رواية القصص والنقاش والتدريس والتدريب والبحث العلمي الموجَّه. التعليم كثيرا ما يجري تحت إرشاد معلمين حلول، إلا أن المتعلمين من الممكن أن يعلموا أنفسهم كذلك. يمكن حدوث التعليم في وضع نظامي أو وضع غير نظامي وأية تجربة واجباتي لها تأثير تكويني على طريقة التفكير أو الشعور أو التصرف يمكن اعتبارها تعليمية. منهجية التعليم يشار إليها بصطلح علم التربية أو علم التعليم.
    التعليم الابتدائي الشامل هو واحد من ثماني أهداف إنمائية ألفية عالمية، والتي أُحرِز تقدم نحوها في العقد الماضي لكن بقي هناك عوائق في هذا المجال. يُعد تأمين التمويل الخيري من المانحين المحتملين أحد المشكلات المستمرة بشكل خاص. أشار الباحثون في pg,g ما وراء البحار (أو دي آي) إلى أن العقبات الرئيسية أمام تمويل التعليم تشمل تضارب أولويات المانحين وهيكلية المساعدات غير الناضجة والافتقار إلى الأدلة والمناصرة لهذه القضية. بالإضافة إلى ذلك، حددت منظمة الشفافية الدولية الفساد في قطاع التعليم باعتباره حجر عثرة أمام تحقيق التعليم الابتدائي الشامل في أفريقيا. علاوة على ذلك، فإن الطلب في العالم النامي على تحسين الوصول إلى التعليم ليس مرتفعًا كما توقع الأجانب. تتردد الحكومات الأصلية في تحمّل التكاليف المستمرة المعنية بالتعليم. هناك أيضًا ضغوط اقتصادية من بعض الآباء والأمهات، الذين يفضلون أن يكسب أطفالهم المال على المدى القصير بدلاً من العمل من أجل تحقيق فوائد التعليم على المدى الطويل.
