Tip of the Week

Keeping Track of Grades
If you have MS Office on your computer, then create a simple spreadsheet listing all the subjects your child has during the day. Then, once a week - I do it every Friday afternoon - enter all of the grades for the week right into the spreadsheet. This doubles as a report card. This helps you with accountability when the state is checking up on you!

Make Your Own Dinosaur Out of Chicken Bones
What a terrific concept! Chris McGowan, a curator at the Royal Ontario Museum, has come up with the ideal hands-on science project. All you need is this book, three young chickens, a few household items, and some time to make your own scale model of an apatosaurus skeleton. And it neatly dovetails with current scientific theories that birds are the living descendents of dinosaurs. McGowan´s detailed, practical directions even include recipes for the leftovers. No one who has ever been interested in dinosaurs will be able to resist this book.
