students have showed us how to , how to , how a can break barriers to communicate with nonverbal autistic students and, most recently, how to create woodburning art (also known as pyrography).

Amy Miller's fourth-grade class uses the hot tools very carefully while burning Native American symbols into pieces of wood. She purchased the supplies through an $837 grant and matching funds raised by the school. The woodburning project aligns with the fourth-grade social studies curriculum. Students are also learning how to colorful creations using yarn and beads.

Deanne, Love this story! Making education interesting by incorporating art is the perfect way to imprint the lesson on children. It may also kick start a hobby for some which is a great way to keep the television and computer games off.
