A new topic each month

A Controversial Topic for Sure

    Each month we post a new topic of interest  for discussion on our classroom bulletin board. This month's topic was the Facebook controversy. The bulletin board postings touched on most of the major issues raised by this matter. There were some very interesting questions asked and comments made.

Lots of ways to reach me.

A Busy Month in the Playroom

    Is it just us or are the months flying by? Another month has ended and the playroom has been very busy! We have been running a new program called Me, My Baby, Our World. Circle times on Tuesday mornings are full of smiles and songs.  We look forward to seeing the scrapbooks at the end of the program. 

    We had an amazing Bug Day on April 11 th. The children made a bumble bee craft and hunted for bugs. We look forward to the warmer weather and playing outside in May. Stay tuned for another theme day in June!

Here's a way to save money

    Word processing software is expensive - especially software that's rich in useful features. Thankfully though there is a much cheaper alternative to the universally used Microsoft Office Suite of programs.  OpenOffice is the name of a replacement group of programs that will duplicate eighty to ninety percent of what Microsoft Office delivers and it's absolutely free. 

     OpenOffice is open-source office software for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers.   
Great for preparing documents for uploading to ILC
   Google Docs lets you create, edit and share documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms and drawings. You can also u pload Microsoft Word files directly into Docs , or download Docs files into Microsoft Word format. And, of course, it's free. If you haven't tried using Google Docs yet, just ask me how it's done.  I'll be glad to  show  you.
