Week 14

Being the last week before Christmas break, it was crazy busy. Far more busy than I care for it to be. But, we still managed to squeeze in vision everyday, math, reading & many Christmas themed activities such as graphing a Santa Claus, decoding a secret holiday message, writing a fun Christmas story & finding common and plural nouns in the song Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Capt. N also had his first piano recital where he played Rudolph & did a fantastic job.

HISTORY
This week for our Christmas Around the World unit we learned how they celebrate Christmas in England, Italy & Israel.

This year for teacher gifts, we made bird seed ornaments. We put them in bag with a bird or birdhouse ornament for the teacher & a card. On a scale of 1 - 10, I'm not sure how well they liked these, but at least it's something different.

As well as the birdseed ornament, Capt. N's piano teachers got a Finnish star made with fun metallic paper with music notes & symbols on it. Why, oh why didn't I take a pic of them? This is the star Capt. N made on the day we discussed Christmas in Finland.
