Root beer sharing celebration

Today was the first day of school, so we planned a creative way of sharing stories about our day . For each sip of root beer that a child took he had to share one unique thing about his day. I gots to learn some really cool thing about the kids' days, and they loved the sweet treat of having a root beer!

Pipe cleaner art fun

Inspired by Family Fun magazine, we have been doing pipe cleaner art today. We are using the remains of a broken styrofoam cooler as the base for our artwork.  The kids are using pipe cleaners to decorate bracelets, wacky hats,  and desk art for teachers, friends, and themselves. We had a great time!

O'charleys and education

I love it when restaurants have menus for kids that are fun,  but also educational. O'charleys' latest title is "wonders of the world". It features 7 man made wonders of the world including mathematical and science challenges. Cool to watch the kids have fun and learn!
