Of course that 99% can suck it when the kids here have basically two spring breaks -- "winter break" and "spring break."
Because we're so close to Christmas the kids are basically on autopilot just biding their time till the 23rd.
It's a little hard to keep them engaged I guess.
Chunky came home complaining his seatmates kept distracting him by having pencil sharpening contests and yelling "Ch-ch-ch-chia!" all day long.
Honestly, that kind of sounds like life in my office, but I digress.
Dr. Mad Scientist was trying to come up with a decent lab for this week for his chemistry students that would be science-y but fun.
We made candy canes last night to test-run the recipe to see if it would actually work.
It was a lot of fun.
Apparently the lab went over well. It was a little hard to squish it into 40 minutes, but he said some kids actually had things resembling candy canes at the end. Ha ha!
Added bonus: No one got sugar burns!
