That's a really great comparison, actually. I love to theme things for my kids. I think they "get it" so much better and have really great connections. I hope that common core will drive a little more of that for the upper grades especially. I think middle and high schools struggle with some of the collaboration we enjoy in elementary. Maybe this will help!
