Today was a fun, creative day. We were a little slow getting up -you know, with the time change, certainly not because we're lazy:). We were excited because this was the first day of our 6 week learning co-op. Today's theme was electricity. The kids had a fantastic time. They made these bugs out of a battery, wire and a light bulb, played with snap circuits, read a book about Thomas Edison, did an experiment, and used something called an energy ball. It was a great kick-off to the co-op. I'll be doing the chemistry portion in a few weeks (my 11th grade chemistry teacher, Mr. Snow, would be so proud!)
When we came home the kids watched This is America, Charlie Brown while I prepared lunch. After lunch, J read from The Penderwicks and I read to B(a Magic School Bus book about sharks). Then we did an art project. I was inspired after going to the flower show to make little fairy houses. J and I made little cave houses while B made a shark house.
Then it was time to deliver Girl Scout cookies, do some errands and plant some seeds. I'm exhausted!
