|I really need to get a better picture of the two of us:)|
|I have another frame so I can build another one for myself. The frame comes from Lowe's and I just silicone the glass to the frame.|
|I am working on another project but my glasses broke:(. So I need to get another pair before I can continue|
|Luna occasionally comes into the studio but she really doesn't like all the noises of the glass breaking and the grinder so she rarely stays for long. Catching her in the little bed I got her is very rare:)|
Topic for each of the six weeks-- Parents were given all the video links and information regarding the discussion of the classes ahead of time to review and note any concerns and discuss with the instructor. Honestly I didn't have any issues with the topics and the only thing mentioned was not to discuss the topic of abortion by a few parents. So that topic will be off the table for this class.
Anatomy and Physiology
Puberty and Hygiene
Consent and sexual assault
Parents were encouraged NOT to attend classes allowing more honest discussion from the kids. So a few of the Moms sat around in another room chatting and having a drink of coffee or tea:).
So for the next 6 weeks MarioFan will be attending this class and put his health book work aside on this topic. After attending the parent meeting I feel confident that the instructor of this class will heed the suggestions of the parents and no controversial issues will be discussed. I am expecting MarioFan to discuss some of the topics to his comfort level with me or his father and then we will resume the book work by the end of October, for the rest of the year!
For our literature class we have wrapped up reading Treasure island and the boys watched the movie. With our Literature program we have been working on understanding Tone, mood, bias, perspective, fact and opinion in writing. With the current mood of the world we have had lots of real life examples to pull from and discuss!!
|We have done several activities to reinforce the terms and understand how an author uses them in their writings.|
Next we will be working on a short poetry unit!
