Final Week of the semester!!!!

Hello my friends,
I cannot believe these six weeks have flown by so quickly! I know we could all use a little plan is to not fit too much into my days and just do things with my kids that we enjoy....painting, playing hide and seek, taking walks, baking pies and cookies, visiting friends and family we never get to see, going to that retirement home and visiting with people that could use some company....and just breathing and taking in all of God's goodness. That is how I want to spend my off about you? 
I know the weekend after we get out of CC...I plan to take my kids across the lake for the weekend and visit all the places mommy grew Harahan and parts of New Orleans...we will visit the zoo, airline skate center, and the old Harahan bowling alley. Also, I covet your prayers for my Haiti trip. I will be leaving Dec. 5-10th. I can't wait to see what God is going to do there. 

What will you guys be doing? Just curious. 

Back to work:   Our final presentation will be a narration of an Aesop Fable. Don't read off a page the entire time. Know the story. Act it out if you want. Bring pics or props. You guys are getting better and better at this. I love watching you grow. Watch the distracting behavior when you are speaking. 
PROJECT your voices...articulate!  Can't wait to see you all again. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

Week 11!!!

Hello my friends,

Sooo...for this weeks presentation...our bright little stars will be persuading an audience on a certain topic/subject. They will choose something they feel strongly about and try and convince us of something! They have 2-3 min to do so. They may use props, pictures, etc....get creative. 

This week we will be looking at a new Future perfect tense for latin, cubes, the French Revolution, and Eastern Europe...among other things....For science project we will be making Rockets!!!! COOL!  And of course drilling away at tin whistle. By the way, practice your beautiful music at home...just don't drive moms crazy!

I can't believe this is the second to last week before our long break!! I will miss you all.
