Loving Them To Pieces

I feel like all I've been doing this year is writing about boxes. These are the top and bottom of a long box that came along with our giant tube (which I've still not had the courage to cut up into shorter pieces). Watching children play with boxes makes me want to write a poem about them. Or sing a song.

The Woodworking Center is ready to go. We are beginning our Tools We Use week in Scholastic's Imagine It, Make It theme and the children will be making and creating things using real tools.
