Kindergarten Weeks 30 & 31

Gemma has been learning to play two songs on the piano - Fur Ludwig (an easy version of Fur Elise) and Amigos (which gives her practice at moving from C position to G position).

We're enjoying our current read aloud: The Trumpet of the Swan.
Gemma's dance class learned more of their tap routine for the June recital.
Gemma learned how to use a glue gun, and Daddy surprised her with one of her very own. ("It's just what I've always wanted! Best present ever!")
Here is a picture of Gemma doing a page of Mathematical Reasoning for fun before bed. In Life of Fred: Jellybeans, Gemma is on chapter 11.

Our theme for Little Explorers this month was insects. One lesson was about bees, and the kids made beeswax candles. Another lesson was titled Insects vs. Spiders, and the kids (and moms) learned some of the differences between the two animals.

I came home from work one day to find this...
We went to swim lessons.
We went on a field trip to the desert to see the superbloom (Week 30), and stopped into an ice cream shop to cool off.
Then we drove home through the town of Julian, which has daffodils everywhere...
...and a camel dairy! (There was a sign advertising camel chocolate milk. Did you know there was such a thing?) I think that one of those camels may be the camel Gemma and I rode in October.
At one point, I caught Gemma wearing this while doing a floor puzzle...
