Weekly Wrap Up 24


Classical Conversations:

DS1 has a presentation that is due the 13th and he has completed it. Topic - The Mormon Trail.

DD has a presentation due Monday on The Rio Grande River. She has completed it.

DS2 hasn't done his presentation which he is a little small and his topic is actually kinda hard... The Old Spanish Trail. So I will be doing a lot of his little presentation by asking him questions and he can answer them with pictures(that's at least my thinking).

I do have their presentations recorded and I will share them next week!! They have done a great job preparing!

Science Topic - First 4 elements on the Periodic Table.

History Topic - From 1820-1930 more than 37 million immigrants came to America seeking freedom and the opportunity to increase their personal wealth.

Wednesday the kiddos had a "bored" moment and after I almost passed out I said ok, So lets have a Boat Contest. You have to build it out of the recycled cardboard and it must float the longest in the tub. Who ever has their boat float the longest wins... You talk about a mad dash to make a boat. It was hilarious. They had a blast and I loved watching them try so hard. Needless to say DD was our winner!!
