My sister is a preschool teacher. Today she came from the school to the library to pick up her requested books and I happened to notice that she was wearing this comfy looking cotton outfit covered in little black and gray Halloween bats. It looked suspiciously like…p-jays. “It was pajama day at school!” she informs me. Then I started thinking how cool it would have been if my sisters and I could have gone to school every day in our jammies instead of scratchy sweaters and noisy corduroys. Two great things could have happened:
- We would have been relaxed and mellow and happy to learn and expand our minds!!!
- We would have made it to school on time…occasionally.
Okay, maybe not. But today, with the internet at our every whim and disposal, we CAN learn in our jammies Here are some free websites where you can learn anything from Pythagorean theorem to ballroom dancing.
