Judy, You mentioned that you did the project along with your students. How did that work? Did you set yourself to approx their pace? did you do the demos each day to keep up with them? Did you have lots of ideas and share with them? How did youkeep them from copying? How did you help them with problems they might have?
Character Education - JUST DO IT - and do it everyday. If you can find a way
for them to be thankful for their mothers then you have been successful
(smile). Now I know that some children do not live with their mothers....
but you know what I mean (mothers give us our conscience). Get them to
listen to you now -- because when they get older it is just too late.
I loved reading about Ken's success story with a high school student....
That is a much harder age to work with.
BTW - I will be linking up some of the string art links to my
Art-Math-Science page (but not all of them).
If you ever need the rest of them - you know who to "call".
