Ancient China in a Folder

Standard

Grace did an awesome job with her Ancient China folder activities. ย We’re quite pleased with how it turned out, and we haven’t shared one of these in a while, so I thought I’d throw some pictures around for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย I love how much information these things pack into one little folder!

Lots of fun was had this week! ย So much fun, actually, that I had to hold back on the pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Don’t worry…I’ll go into some of our activities in more detail throughout the week.

The (Last Two) Week(s) In Pictures

Standard

We are finally getting settled in our house and getting into a routine…well, as close to a routine as we ever get. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย This means we will (I hope!) be back to blogging on a more regular schedule.

(Edit: This post is even more delayed than I thought it would be due to WordPress misbehaving.)

A Poem for Our Feline Friends

Standard

Grace is continuing to use History Pockets to learn about the history of Egypt. ย One of her assignments today was to write a poem about cats since they were so very important to the Egyptian people. ย She chose to do an acrostic poem…she thought using the word “CAT” was kind of a punk out, so she went with “FELINE” instead. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย The picture of the poem is a bit blurry, so I’ll type it out for you first. ๐Ÿ™‚

Faster than a human

Easily you glide

Lazily you succeed

In moving faster than the eye

Naughty little mouse, beware

Easy dinner you are for a FELINE!!
