I clearly need to habit train my picky eater.
The book Gemma chose as her prize-book was Jewel Society: Keep Friends Close, Emeralds Closer by Hope McLean, another mystery. (She didn't even look at the picture books; she went straight for the chapter books, and not the thin ones.) She decided on the "emerald" one in the series, because green is her favorite color. The book is a level S, end of 4th grade. She's 3/4 done with her Chickadee Court mystery, so she'll start this one in about a week.
We met with our home(pre)school co-op. The theme this month is maps. The host mom read the group the book Follow That Map (Ritchie). She hid three treasures in our neighborhood park, and drew a map showing where the treasures were hidden. Here is the group studying the map...
Another thing Gemma and I did this week was make a cherry pie.
At the end of May, my in-laws brought us a crate of fresh cherries a friend of theirs had let them pick.
And then they had a tea party.
