Last night, my Granddaughter, Danielle, called to ask if she could come over and make a mask that she needed today for her English class. She brought the feathers and the pearl string. I have a warehouse of craft supplies so she found everything else she wanted, and came up with this a couple of hours later. They were required to read the "classic" tale, "Lord of The Flies". Since the boys in that story painted their faces, the teacher came up with a game for the students to play and they needed masks. I am disappointed to see that the students are still required to read this garbage. Danielle's father and all of my other kids had to read it years ago too. I read it when my last two children complained so much about it. I also complained to the school at that time, and told them that I think they need to find another "classic" for required reading! Maybe "John Adams", or another great book. If any of you out there have a different take on this, I'd like to hear it.
