Organizing Children’s Books

I have an insane amount of children’s books. I think most former teachers do. Until recently, they were boxed up because we really didn’t have the room for them. When I was looking for a specific book to use with Jonah, I would have to go digging and end up frustrated. It just wasn’t working […]

Oviparous Animals Printables

Spring is the perfect time to talk about eggs and oviparous animals! What’s that you say? Ovipa-what?!? Vocabulary word for the day: Oviparous, which means egg-laying.
