"Honey, I'm home!" Teacher & Zookeeper Ms. Leigh Anne Davis says, even when she's at work.
I give the kids directions on how to cut their 3in. by 3in. square, [and] it is amazing what artists some of these kids turn out to be. It's fun to watch. Some kids that struggle in math the entire year really shine during this unit.
