Sharon, I love the "1000 Cranes for Peace" idea on your website! Keep up the great work!

Thanks, Idus in southern Mississippi

  <<I've never had a problem with the first 5 minutes of class. I greet each kid at the door when they walk in and encourage them to go get their work out. >>
  That's the way things are in my classroom, too, once they've gotten in to a project. Most of the times kids are at their places and working before the bell rings.
  Of course when there's a new project being introduced, they need to come in and be seated to wait for instructions.
