I learned a LOT about some of my kiddos! One of them is even PERFECT (just ask him!) One of the things we did today was the sticky note posters - you know which ones. They are all over Pinterest.

This is used multiple times a day. I don't have a full picture of it, but I will take one first thing in the morning! Here are some close-ups. I can fit 5 large charts…
