The topic this month is "Foreign Languages," so Host-Mom J wrote a Native American symbol on each plate. Each child got to translate the message on his or her plate. This plate says "happy."
We continued listening to episodes (chapters) throughout the week.
We also sang (daily) "Go Tell It On The Mountain," reviewed multiplication flash cards a few times, read a couple Life of Fred: Ice Cream chapters, reviewed (daily) this week's Classical Conversations memory work, and practiced piano (daily) on Grandma's keyboard.
Gemma drew these elves building a snowman. She asked Grandma to draw the elf hats (in the air, because the elves are celebrating).
Finally - as is our tradition - the day after Christmas, we took Gemma to see Santa Claus.
