Plan Now for a Fall Co-op

What do dissections have to do with co-ops?

Listen in as Kendra Fletcher, a fellow Ultimate Radio Show host and a mother of 8, shares her co-oping experiences! Sometimes Kendra's co-ops included only one other family while at other times more joined in! Using the strengths of additional parents greatly enhances the co-op experience! Neither Kendra nor I care for dissecting animals so we love that we can turn duties like that over to the parents who do enjoy dissections. In this picture Kendra's children and their friends are watching a turtle being dissected.
