Advisory - February 16

Today we  read Hey Little Ant.  What do you think the boy should do?   Also check out for more book ideas.
In 1992, Phillip Hoose and his daughter Hannah, then nine, wrote a musical conversation between an ant about to get flattened and the child about to squish it. It ended with the question, "What do you think that kid should do?" Their popular recording of the song "Hey Little Ant" led to the story's publication as a children's picture book in 1998, which has become a runaway success. Now the ant and the child – and their shared dilemma – are known by parents, children and educators throughout the world.

Our interests displayed - February 8

We are working on our individual drawings of our interests, decorating "mock" t - shirts.  They will all be displayed on clotheslines throughout the building.  Here is the beginning - it is amazing that we found clothespins to add to our displays.  Now only 500 more to hang! My group even asked if we could create real t-shirts with the drawings, now that's a thought . . .
