Tis the season! End of the year programs are upon us. Our co-op had an excellent program last week. The kids did their various recitations, songs, etc. Z-Man and his class even performed (is that the right word?) John 3:16 in sign language. Little Man was non-participatory but hey, we expected that. After the program, visitors were invited to peruse the many tables in the lobby where families displayed projects from their school year. One of Z-Man's friends actually made a mini dinosaur skeleton out of two turkey skeletons. How cool is that?!
We displayed our rainforest dioramas and lapbook but the kids have done so many different things this year that we thought it would be fun to have our own little "world tour" dinner for their grandparents. Z-Man set up "stations" for each continent that we studied and then led his grandparents on a little tour, explaining projects and answering questions. They, being the very sweet grandparents that they are, were attentive and impressed with the boys' work. I wish I had had the presence of mind to take pictures of everyone during the tour, but I'm afraid we'll have to make do with these:
Z-Man's notebook with all his maps and samples of math, language arts, Bible verses, cursive, drawing and hymn lyrics. These sticker books were great. We love stickers.
We also had a little slide show of some of the things that weren't displayed, like science experiments and field trips.
Now I'll box up most of their work and, let's see, we have two more year-end picnics and Z-Man's evaluation (yes, we live in one of THOSE states) and then I think we can officially call it the end of the year! It's been a great trip!
