Have you seen these????? Its the new way to learn.
Tucker's elementary is out with the black boards, chalkboards, and dry erase boards and in with each classrooms own "smartboards" thats right Tucker will be learning in the classroom with the latest technology by next spring. These are touch boards that are ran from the teachers computer and the next step is to have a screen at each childs desk so they can interactively learn from their seats just by touching their screens and answering questions-------wow blow me away. Really glad we are working with he and Jaycie already on using the computer my little geniuses with be using them daily!
We have a school district that is needless to say in very good shape financially (thanx tax guy) and in cooperation with U of I so we will be a pilot school for this for others but it may be headed to your school next! We were notified of them this week and they will be electronically hooked up hopefully over the winter break. They are hoping to hold a demo for all us old fogie parents soon after that. How Cool Go Heyworth elementary!!!!

You see I have fast learned that when you send your child to school nothing that "happens in the family stays in the family" it goes right out the front door and on the bus with them
Tucker had a great time too with mama Debbie and Baby Nathan and everybody else!!! Thanx again Mama Deb!!!!!

PS I will have "breadstix"pics up real soon too!
quad cities this weekend.
They had a house full we even took g'ma Pam with us so mommy could car shop and she could visit some real garden nurseries. Jill Todd & Nathan came to along with Dan Kristi Grant Luke and Wes gudeman man it was busy!!! but, a ton of fun!
While we were there a WW2 ship was docked on the Mississippi and everybody but mama pam and Jaycie went and toured. Talk about cool it was quite an experience for all 5 of us little boys! You can not believe how all of those men lived on their way to the beaches of Normandy! We also saw a parachute the size of our house that they used to drop the tanks on the beach. I got to see where the enlisted guys slept which was rope cots stacked 4 high on all sides of the room with about 2 feet in between the top and bottom of each cot. Grant put on a helmet that the men wore during battle. I also got to see an ambulance that was used that was on board as well. The guns where huge and had 2 seats on them for 2 guys to load and fire at the same time.
The enlisted men had no shower the officers had about 1 shower per 15 beds and of course the captain did have his own shower. On the beach of the river, they had an amphibious vehicle that was a boat in the water and had wheels for when they got to the beach.
I am taking the pictures to school tomorrow to show all the kids. Yes thats right today was my first day of school I will have more on that and pictures in the next post!
