Spring ahead

Smelling spring flowers is the order of the day. And planning for Shakespeare week - the 2-3's are a-buzz with ideas. Dance Dance Revolution is a hit in 4-5 P.E. What concentration! That tells you something. (That kids love to dance?)

Sixth graders were just as rapt today putting seeds into vinegar-tinted water to mimic acid rain. And you could have heard a pin drop as James described Lincoln's assassination in 8th grade social studies. He asked what would happen if something tragic like that happened to our president in today's world? I realized that I was the only one in the room who remembers JFK's assassination. Although I guess communication was comparatively as different in the 1860's to the 1960's as to today.

I have started "twittering" about the school - you can see it on this blog or become a follower. Twitter is fascinating. It is much like poetry in the best ones - not just about someone's lunch. (Although that can be interesting too...) I leave it to you to explore it and decide for yourself...
