Today was "loop plane" day in science.
I used to believe that using a big table was the best way to do science projects with the short people. Perhaps it's due to this year's smaller class sizes, but it's worked out well using our little back area for just about everything. They seem better able to attend to my instructions/demonstrations. Which translates to a much smaller number needing help when it's their turn to assemble.
Our sub, Mrs. Nicoloff, is a pro when it comes to walking into a new situation with challenges. Much less stressful to have a sub when there's a good degree of control in the room. This was her first time with the second session, she couldn't believe the contrast.
