They worked on some of the uses and cases of pronouns, including pronoun reference issues. They also talked about what the entries in the dictionary actually mean, how to use the pronunciation guides, and compared dictionaries to see how they differ.
Caitlin started her instructional floor hockey league! She picked her t-shirt number... #1. Anyone else surprised?
This month the kids went to their first ever (drop off) camp day. Thankfully I was working so I didn't get to be that nervous mom that dropped them off and lurked in the bushes. Instead, Juan dropped them off and they had a BLAST! It is an outdoor science program with it's own private lake! I was able to get these pictures from their facebook page, and it was comforting to see candid, happy shots of them!
The kids worked on a unit called "Lake Ecology". They explored the water cycle, water sheds, and water conservation.
Here the kids are having a "water cycle dance off".
They even got to go on the lake! Caitlin went in a canoe and Jayden went by himself (cue my heart attack here) in a kayak!
During one of the classes this month a lot of kids were out, so the kids got to practice new moves with a smaller teacher/student ratio.
paleo chicken pot pie. Instead of broccoli I used sweet green peas, but it was delicious! Jayden thought it was "so so" but ate it anyway, and Juan liked it enough as well.
