This Week at the Super Awesome School



We had a fun and busy week here at the Super Awesome School of Super Awesomeness...

The highlight: a trip to the zoo. Yeah, sure, we saw some animal exhibits, but the best part was getting harassed by this Canada goose while we were eating lunch. He really, really wanted our Oreos!



Isn't he a cutie? At one point, I thought he was going to grab my camera.

We read a couple of chapters of Bridge to Terabithia for our mother/daughter book club. I was very surprised when the librarian told us that it's considered a controversial book and when it was first published in 1977, some school libraries refused to stock it. How times have changed! (Can you imagine what the librarians of the 70's would have thought of the Twilight series?)

We finally got around to doing our salt crystal experiment. I'll do another post about it later.



Lots of things happening in math this week, including measuring stuff...



A decimal shopping spree...



And a homemade game of Dragons-and-Decimals...







Hope you had a great week, too!
