More Tux Paint

I can't get enough of Tux Paint!  Yesterday 3 of the Grade 1 classes met Tux Paint for the first time.  I love watching them use it for the first time.  They are given a minimum of instruction, then sent on their own to discover what else it can do.  Most often, someone discovers the toilet stamp, complete with flushing sounds, and shows it to their friend, who then shows them how they made a rainbow, and then they get up and show someone that, who shows them how you can change the color of your bricks, and so on.  It is wonderful to watch them share and communicate their ideas with each other.
