School stuff

Today we practiced counting money...



...and played Roll-N-Multiply...



At lunchtime, we read Vincent van Gogh by Jen Green. After lunch we got out the oil pastels and drew our own Van Gogh-style pictures.

Dude drew a field of grain with crows...



...and Super drew a village under the night sky.



We also read about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, at Dude's request. We enjoyed How to Dig a Hole to the Other Side of the World by Faith McNulty, and our DK Rocks and Minerals book. We edited our wolf essay (see below) and added a couple of things to our wolf notebook. Finally, we did a couple of Grammar Minutes and called it a day.

Happy Friday!

Love the Van Gogh-style pics! I'm going to have to look for that roll-n-multiply game - looks like something my boys would like. Thanks for sharing!

Glad to see that your home is looking better :-)
I have been out of the loop, knitting plus keyboarding has hurt my hands. It's nice to come back into the blogosphere and see what my bloggy buddies are up to!
