I will say very good job. That is hard to say since I am a Patriots fan. LOL. Good job. Sorry I have been gone for a little bit it has been a little crazy over here. But I am back now. I was looking at your other entries. Lots of fun things to go through, thanks.

Congratulations on the Super Bowl win- we watched the last two minutes of the game and it was really something! And thanks for the link on how to make snowflakes- that looks like a cool site.

Whoo Hooo... Giants won!!! I knew their hardwork and determination would pay off!!! (at least that's the character lesson I gave my son-LOL) I love the idea of writing out GIANTS in pipe cleaners way to relate current events with a hands on activity...

That is so funny! Congratulations!

Congratulations on the big win!

I think making words is a great idea. It gives a sensory experience to learning letters (big in Montessori classrooms).

That link looks like fun. We'll have to get some Borax and try it!

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
