    • Notes: The kids didn't actually do the project - they just wanted to talk and eat snacks. One new kid was shy and didn't say anything, just kind of smiled and one took books to another table to read and didn't participate. The other kids had fun, even if it was a small group, and I expect a much larger turnout for Minecraft next month.
