|No pictures during the play but it was very well done and we all had tears in our eyes when we left|
|Afterward we took a walk around the Japanese gardens and talked about the play|
|His topics were to talk about the map/geography of Peru, learn about the Guinea Pig festival and find a game that was practiced in Peru.|
|MarioFan during his class presentation. Everyone loved the Sapo! He also planned on wearing an Andes poncho and straw hat for his presentation but we forgot them at home:(|
|He wanted to bring in our pet Guinea pigs to show and tell but in the end we left them at home and just took in a picture. The guinea pig festival in Peru is fascinating until you get to the part where they eat them:(|
For our History lessons we have begun studying the Cold War! We always start of watching Crash Course videos to introduce new history topic which my kids love.
|We looked at the causes and effects of the Cold War|
|and we made a list of things happening around the world during the Cold War many of which we will touch on in the weeks to come.|
MarioFan has completed his Growing with Grammar book and is about a month away form completing his spelling and math programs:). I probably won't start grammar again until next September and I have decide not to resume a spelling programs since he appears to be a natural speller:). Math however I will continue to have him work on with worksheets I find on the web so we don't get too rusty:) before beginning pre algebra next year.
