One of my kids asked me the other day, "When girl babies are born, are their ears already pierced?"
I answered, "Yes, and on some of them, the belly button is pierced too."
Just kidding, I didn't say that, but I found it a very interesting question. One of my little boys has his ears pierced, and since it's against school rules for boys to wear earrings, he wears little toothpick-looking sticks in the holes every day. Too bad he wasn't born with his ears already pierced...
This week's Mr. Teacher column on education.com is titled "A Day Made Better." A while back, I was contacted by someone who works with the program started by OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom. It's worth a look.
This week's Carnival of Education is up and running over at Lifelong Learners. It's worth a look, too!
