Something Cute

Peaches has a really cool science teacher. He's just neat-- I love going to parent-teacher conferences just to see him. He told the class that for extra credit that they just needed to share their latest study on beaver habitats with someone, write down a synopsis of what they shared and have a parent sign off.

99.9% of the kids would have just written something and had a parent sign off. Not Peaches.

She instead had the kids ages 10 and under (six of them) sit on the floor with paper beaver teeth while she told them the story! She took pictures. Dash wanted to go outside to play, but she took them down to the river to gather branches and make a pretend beaver den. Dash claimed that he was afraid of beavers so she took some pictures of him looking scared, being chased, and pretending to sleep with beaver brothers and sisters surrounding him and looking at him!

My husband doesn't want me posting pics of the kids on the internet so I won't upload these, but what she did for her teacher in Power Point is priceless!

It was kind of her.

That is fabulous. I love hearing about kids doing something - anything - that involves their creativity and a desire to do something. I hate the "whatever" attitude of so many kids today. Gosh, I'm getting old. . .
