Year 1: Week 26

This week, we...

  • finished "As You Like It" in Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare. What tale should we read next?😊
  • read poems from Nature in Verse
  • completed Chapter 2 of Life of Fred: Mineshaft
  • read "Jack the Giant Killer" from Andrew Lang's The Blue Fairy Book. Her narration of this story was hilarious. In it, she cast me as the king and all the giants. She was, of course, Jack.
  • practiced piano (with a focus on calypso song "Mary Ann" and hymn "Soul Adorn Thyself With Gladness")
  • read a fable, practiced cursive, sang songs...
  • finished Chapter 1 of Seed Babies 
  • read about seahorse fathers in The Burgess Seashore Book
  • read the first 5 books in the Ramona series! (Not "we." She. Ramona is Gemma's new favorite book series.)
  • listened to Mozart
  • read about Brazil in The World by the Fireside
  • drew a carriage, using 1-2-3 Draw Princesses
  • re-viewed La Grenouillere by Monet
  • learned to say goodbye in various ways in Spanish and French
  • finished our bedtime free read - The Magician's Nephew. It's so good, but please don't read it first!
  • went on an after-dinner walk to the beach to watch the International Space Station move across the night sky. It was only visible for about two minutes, but it was a pretty neat-o two minutes.
  • built go-carts with friends, using grid beam - Handicrafts✔️
