I was going through the picture files on my computer yesterday and found a couple of 'educational moments' that, in my somewhat biased opinion, really need to be recorded for all to see.
This is from the early fall. We were studying A PAIR OF RED CLOGS through Five In A Row. We learned a lot about Japan and had some fun on the last day with a meal of chicken fried rice.
This is Cade trying his hand at chopsticks in his makeshift Japanese outfit. Cute, huh?
This is just a small sample of art class on any given day. This is Eli hard at work mastering ink drawing.
Yes, he's very good at it. He can create artwork anywhere, anytime!
Notice that he created art on my last blank grade/attendance report sheet. I'm beginning to think it's the t-shirt. Everytime he wears the "I DIDN'T DO IT" t-shirt......he does it.
Now, this is an example of his artwork that I can actually keep past bath time. It is a study in pencil and orange crayon.
I'll be back to post the pictures and details of our winter study and give an update on how school is going with FIAR and T4L. We were side-tracked by sping break this week. We had originally planned it for next week, but decided to move it up to accommodate a birthday, friends and a trip to the Skatepark of Memphis to see a pro skateboarder!
