A Play ~ We saw Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. The performance only had three actors and left us rather confused. This was one of the few Shakespeare plays that I wasn't familiar with and I hadn't prepared them well. We ended up deciding that we were going to need to review the story line in a different way.
Three Movies ~ We decided to see Much Ado About Nothing in movie form and understood it better this time.
We also went out with our homeschool friend S to see Dr. Strange. I am not sure this could be considered educational in any way, but the kids enjoyed it immensely.
Lastly, Anne is working her way through The King and I for our February musical. She is watching one musical each month as part of her musical course.
Art ~ We also had a lovely morning of art with Grandma. We learned about Edvard Munch and The Scream. My mother always does a tremendous amount of research and gives a great presentation. The kids went on to make their own parody of The Scream.
We also accomplished much of the basics. It was an all around good week.
