This Week in 3rd Grade

We finished reading Beware Princess Elizabeth, and started Confessions of Charlotte Doyle.

We finished reading The Princess and the Goblin (Gemma requested The Princess and Curdie), and started Children of the New Forest.

We went to Benihana...

Gemma completed her summer reading log and turned it in at the library, so she got a Benihana kid’s meal coupon and a new book of her choice from a special cart. (Yes, Gemma did wear her kimono to Benihana.)

..the Cayton Children’s Museum...

...the Getty Villa...

The Villa has a new audio tour for kids, based on the Percy Jackson books (which we haven’t read, and you don’t have to have read the books to enjoy the tour). The tour is Greek mythology meets Choose Your Own Adventure. At the beginning of the tour you’re told that you’re a half-blood and that you are on the search for your mythological parent. Gemma’s mother ended up being Aphrodite...the first time we did the tour. But it was so fun that we went back and changed our choices to see what other possibilities we could end up with. 

We also went to diving class, water polo class, and a birthday party at Rediscover Center, and did our usual schoolwork.

Finally, a panoramic shot of the library books Gemma has checked out right now...
