For Art we mixed 1 c. flour, 1/2 c. salt and 1/2 c. warm water. We rolled out the dough and cut heart shapes with a hole to tie string through. Baked them for 2 hrs. at 250 F. Then painted them and sprinkled glitter. Each child gave them to loved ones for Valentine's Day.
Ruth and Canaan are both beginning to read. I had no idea that Canaan could even read! I'm still not sure if he's just looking at the pictures...we'll see. Regardless, they're both ready. I need to get some good, easy first readers. (Suggestions again?) In math they are doing addition. We are studying Oceans in geography. We are also studying sculpting in art appreciation. We have a potter coming next week!
