Kindergarten Week 21

Gemma is 75% done with Khan Academy's first grade math. We continued in Life of Fred: Ice Cream; we're nearing the end.

We listened to some Pimsleur Spanish in the car. I'm enjoying this program because it moves very, very slowly (which is actually one of the things people don't like about the program).

At our afterschool co-op, we learned about brains. Gemma made a neuron out of candy, and tried on a brain hat.
She practiced Old MacDonald on piano. Those eighth notes are tricky.

I came home from work one day to find Gemma on page 85 of The Magic Tree House: Blizzard of the Blue Moon (#36). She is officially an independent reader.

Here are two drawing she did this week. This is a tiger...
...and this is Gemma "with red hair" and a dress she said she would like to make for Halloween 2018. (For Halloween 2017, she said she wants to be a Khan Academy avatar.)
She went to dance class.
Also, she learned Bottom's speech from A Midsummer Night's Dream. I have had a most rare vision...
