When we want to read...or not read... to our kids

Sometimes we want to cuddle up with our kids and hold the book, admiring the images, and really, we just love to feel the paper under our fingertips as we turn each page.

But other times we feel too tired to get into character and our heart's greatest desire is to snuggle up with the little ones and enjoy the story along side them.

Chances are, another teacher had that same brilliant idea and already developed the lesson plan.  for a few bucks you can buy it and use it over and over again.  And bam! you're a child's teaching hero! 

I have known about this site for a year now, and my first great find was an escape room package for $12.  Seriously!  If you're a teacher, whether it's in a public setting or in a homeschool group, this site will become i…

Animals are SO smart

I have no idea why, but I am still surprised when I see proof that animals have a sense of adventure that is remarkably similar to ours.  Watch this cute video and let your heart melt with happiness. See you next week!
