Happy 4th of July!

Just a quick post. I'm still trying to get on track after returning from vacation, catching up with some "tech" things, and now preparing for some out-of-town visitors.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday! And may you enjoy time with family and friends!

Thanks to my daughter (age 5) for creating a great 4th of July hair-do, thanks to toca boca Hair Salon app.

For my students, here is a message from Ms. Weathers: 
"Did your Evendale student receive their "Reading Challenge" in the mail from Principal Weathers? If not, be looking for it on Tuesday and keep reading this summer!"

If you need any idea for books, please let me know. Also reminder that the school email and website has changed as of July 1, 2011. My school email is now: mbroxterman@princetonschools.net AND the disctrict website is now: http://www.princetonschools.net/. Please make sure you change these in your address book and browser bookmarks/favorites.

Lastly, here are a few 4th of July related apps you might be interested in. I have not tried all these so not sure of the quality. Sorry I didn't post them sooner.
