Food book!

I love pictures, especially when they are slick renderings of food, especially exotic food. Wiley, my man, you have done it. The cover is so gorgeous.

The inside page, not so much.

Stop Motion Movie Madness

Well, not so much madness. But a couple good shorts from the IPad movies workshop I gave last month.

Do not duplicate

I was looking through some curriculum materials in a classroom, and had to share my findings. If you look at the bottom right corner of the page, there is a “Reproduction Prohibited” notice. However, the pages I was viewing were photocopies! Someone had purposely disregarded the “do not copy” prohibition. Guilty guilty guilty!

Meta, this blog post duplicates the photocopy, which duplicated the original. So am I guilty as well?

The school I visited had their first STEM club meeting on Friday. I hung around to get some ideas. Okay, I admit I stayed to play with the metal marble drop toy.
