So, we've finished the first week and my kiddos are cute and eager to learn....but they do not stop talking....we call it an epidemic at my school. Kids with just so much to say all the time.

Desk or not to desk?

I tried to be without a desk for one year. I realized I can't live without it. I'm not the most organized so papers would pile up wherever... all over the room and I could never find anything! At...

I too am recovering from the type of class you described. I hated going to school each and every morning....couldn't wait for the year to end.
