Robin had the opportunity to make Swedish Christmas crackers with his homeschooling group this week. One of the moms in the group is Swedish and organized the craft.
Robin's Saxon Math K introduced the idea of price tags and paying for things with up to 10 pennies this week. This is fun for Robin since he has a strong interest in business and the entrepreneurial spirit. He is a little annoyed by the 10 penny limit as he says that the items we are pricing are worth more than that (he's right, since they are cans and boxes of food from our pantry, none of which could be purchased for under 10 cents!)
I read to Robin and we worked on his alphabet. He found a game on an old toy "Batman Computer" we have which involved matching upper and lower case letters and was doing quite well at it.
We read books about 'whites only' amenities in the South, ancient Egypt, pirates, and the 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast.
And one about puffins.
