Grade 6 Science. It's driving me up the wall.

Actually, it's driving me ON the wall.

He's doing classifications.
His notes are in paragraph form. Which is driving me nuts, because you can't see the big picture if it's all in paragraphs.

So I tried to chart it out for him on paper.
Letter size was too small.
Legal size was too small.
Left over lampshade paper (from the days of Billie's) was too small.

I was considering making a classification castle out of Lego, so he could visually SEE how it all fit together... and then I saw the wall. The empty wall beside my computer.

And I remembered the post it notes I bought last month...
