EduCarnival v2 - Issue 4

HUR-ray, HUR-ray, HUR-ray, STEP right in! ONE show only... well, this week anyway.

Or, to paraphrase Shel Silverstein: "What? What's that you say? You say today is CARNIVAL day?! Wahoo! I'm clickin' through to play!"

Welcome to the September 16, 2009 issue of EduCarnival v2! You know, I had realized I'd missed the weekly Carnivals, but I hadn't realized how much. It makes me smile every time I see I've got new mail, because mostly it's Carnival stuff and that means I get to go read a post! And then I cobble things together and it all looks so nice and I feel good about that and people even READ it and there's sharing and just... YAY.

So, thank you all so much for making this possible! I really do enjoy putting this together - it's work, but it's fun. :) Hopefully I will remember to update BlogCarnival before leaving for school on Wednesday - when I went to the site I saw that I didn't update last week. Whoops!

And a few people have asked about hosting. Before I post this one I'll set up the next few issues and see if I can figure out how to get that arranged. I'd like to have the EduCarnival start roaming in October if I can.

What with research papers, a field trip, and open house, things have been a wee bit crazy, so I must confess that there's not a lot of cleverness directly behind the cut. You'll have to follow the links to the submitted posts to get to the clever!

If your post should've been included and wasn't, please email me. Enjoy!
