- Making a Medieval Castle and defending if from invasion.
- Playing I Spy with the Periodic Elements Table poster on the wall
- Writing long letters about our upcoming trip and what they want to do on it
- Making up their own language that sounds a little bit like Latin, Spanish and Ewok
- Watching our new Muzzy French Videos (three times so far this week)
- Studying and quizzing each other on our new parts of speech poster
- Counting our vacation money over and over
- Listening to the Veggie Tales Easter music CD too many times to count
- Reviewed their sign language knowledge and taught each other a few extra words
- Reading an entire book about biology and three graphic novels based on Greek mythology (Tom Sawyer)
- Quizzing their poor teacher on the above books and snickering when she does not know the answers (also Tom Sawyer). I did get an A in college biology but didn't study Greek mythology, and besides, college biology was a looong time ago!
They studied cityscapes this month at the art museum.
Little Red Riding Hood
Tom Sawyer (Is that a man parachuting in front of the building or someone bungee jumping out the window?)
I do plan to try a small modified version of the work box system with them this summer. I'll probably start that in another week. I just love the way they keep right on learning despite my not actively teaching them.
