Here's my cute crew...
My William dragon.
We dressed up, made Blackbeard's jolly rogers, and went on a treasure hunt.
For science, we learned about different kinds of energy (Light, heat, nuclear, etc) As one experiment we lit sparklers and talked about the different kinds of energy it was making.
And as for scary closets---take a look at what my school closet USED to look like:
yah, scary-----but check out what it looks like NOW!
BOOM BA DA BOOM! No more searching frantically for that eye dropper while a dozen kids are waiting for me and the next experiment. I KNOW WHERE IT IS NOW!!! WHOO HOOO!
And my kids have finally memorized where all 50 US states are.
Well, Maxwell memorized it at least.
