I am excited about the second quarter of school. I have a lot of activities planned that I think the kids will really enjoy. Next Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. day and we are going to do a lapbook this year! I am really excited about this project not only because Dr. King is a great man to study about, but because Makiah will get to make something that she can look back at later. I think it will be a nice change from a normal school day. We will study about him and then take the rest of the day off.
Makiah is doing really well in school, except for Math. It's not that she doesn't know the work, she doesn't like it. So we drag through Math, everyday. UGH! I am still trying to think up a fun way of doing math, but so far I haven't been successful.
Every two weeks we have a Bible passage that Makiah has to memorize. We are also working on a poem for memory, about penguins. Her favorite!
Well, for now that catches us up. I'll be back next week to post about MLK Day and pics of our projects!
