We talked about what the city looked like and how they have windmills. So I searched online for a craft project and we decided to make a windmill. Directions can be found at DLKT's crafts for kids. I think we will continue to add objects to our little town so we will remember what Amsterdam is like.
Language arts is going a bit slow. We are working on getting an official diagnosis of dyslexia for my son, and then making a choice for the best curriculum to use. We still practice writing the spelling words and talking about sentences like recommended in the guide, but I don't stress about him getting it correct.
For story time we finished the biography of Louis Braille. JJ was excited at the end of the book when it mentioned how Helen Keller was present when his body was moved after he died from his home town to Paris. Fitting that we read both their biographies. Louis Braille lead in interesting life, and we really like how he choose to live life to the fullest, even though he knew it would be a short life.
We are still reading through the assigned pages in the Beginners Bible for early readers. Some days are better than others. But we try to keep practicing. And in Math U See we are learning about measurements. Specifically inches and how many inches in a foot.
Morning Bells has been put aside as well as the Hide 'Em in Your Heart CD as my son really does not like them. We are using Music for Little Mozart's for piano lesson and I think that's enough music for our week. Can't wait to see what next week will hold.
