Today was a wonderful day filled with excitement, sharing, and lots of love. The children were so happy to have their family members in the classroom and so eager to share their learning as well as learn a little about what life was like for their adult in his or her childhood. Here's what the Storm Breakers said when we shared what they learned this morning about their grandparent's/parent's/aunt's childhoods.....
