Weekly Wrap-Up

We are getting ready to leave on a campout with a bunch of other families from the kids' AWANA club, but I wanted to post something brief about this week's learning. I'm updating my widget to show links.

Books We Read:

The Witch of Blackbird Pond (with Ian)
Children of Summer (with Ian)
Mitch and Amy (Ian)
Eyewitness Book of Natural Disasters (Ian)
Grandfather's Journey (with Eliza)
The Hello, Goodbye Window (with Eliza)
Little House on the Prairie (with Eliza)
The Best Nest (with Caroline)

Also, with some friends in our backyard we tried out the Diet Coke/Mentos Fountain (with experiment: does it work as well with mint Tic-Tacs, mint altoids, mint Dentyne gum? Answer: no. But they still taste good!)

That experiment sounds fun..we must try it sometime!

Trying to remember the results when we tried it with multiple candies...we found something that worked even better than Mentos...I need to ask my students tomorrow what the "winner" was!
