I was at a friend's house the other day and our kids were playing together while we moms were enjoying a much needed tea break. They were using the program "Garage Band" on her Mac to make up silly songs (a favorite past-time), and called to us to come and hear what they'd done. The recording they made was a hilarious radio broadcast complete with a hip-hop rap song all about the history they had read that day. Whose kids do this? It was great - they thought of it themselves, they had a blast, they got to be creative, and they were doing narration without even realizing it! Yet another reminder of why I love being part of this school.
