Simon and I have taken a bit of a break from our Letter of the Week Preparatory Curriculum work. We’ll be back with week 7 next week though! I also haven’t shared pictures of Simon at school recently. Here are the ones his teacher has posted from mid-October through now!
This is from Simchat Torah!
And some of his recent school projects:
Next up, some of Zachary’s recent school work.
Here is his thankful book. It’s all in Hebrew.
Zachary also brought home a list of what everyone in his class is thankful for. He said his brother.
Gabbie brought home work this week as well. The top one I just thought was cute, and the others are from her unit on the solar system.
For Gabbie’s poetry unit, she had to present a poem with an animal theme. From a book of poems about dogs (Name That Dog! Puppy Poems from A to Z by Peggy Archer), she chose 2!
Puddles (Scottish Terrier)
Sloshing through puddles
Splashing his toes
Leaving wet paw prints
Wherever he goes.
Drinking from puddles
Rain, cool and sweet.
Leaving more puddles
Behind on the street.
Queenie (Lhasa Apso)
We bought her yummy doggy treats
for “sit,” and “beg,” and “stay.”
She just sits there and looks at us
and gets them anyway.
She digs and barks and jumps and runs.
She doesn’t listen, ever!
But Queenie knows she’ll always rule
our house and hearts forever.
I like the poem Puddles because it’s cute that it’s the same kind of dog that I have at home. I like the poem Queenie because it’s cute that they say that Queenie never listens but still rules the house.
On a side note – is this post too long? Should I be splitting up the kids’ work into different posts?
