S.T.E.A.M. Maker: These Are A Few of Our Favorite Things

These are a Few of Our Favorite Things

How does a S.T.E.A.M. Maker facilitator catch up on her homeschooling blogging? By making up crazy song lyrics that coincide to photo collages, of course!  I wrote a song parody because it is fun to try new things and I had never made one before (and may never again). I picked the song because it seemed fitting and it is one of Christopher's favorites. Thanks to my collaborators Mikaela and Kathy. Feel free to sing it loudly with enthusiasm. It sounds best that way.
