Play with Your Food & Win a Book!

Funny Food Made EasyWhen is the last time you ate a glam yam or a berry bird? I had them both yesterday and squeezed in a few words about nutrition to my daughters as they created and then devoured these works of healthy food art. Fun learning? We can’t get enough!

  1. Love the pet rocks and Elmers. Yahoo the plans are already done for me. Would love to win the book looks perfect for the classroom

  2. I need to order those reading clips for my classroom! I love that they give my special needs students a unique way to demonstrate their comprehension. These are a must try!

  3. I like the Close Reading Clips, they look amazing! I do think several sets would be necessary for the classroom so the children could work in groups. It might be a good project to put on Donors Choose.
