What's left for the week? We have a writing prompt to do tomorrow, and some more math. I have a news article site for kids I'd like her to read an article from. We've covered a lot this week.
We are close to finishing the first Grimms sisters book. I'm halfway through the fourth one on my own.
We watched 'To Kill a Mockingbird' over dinner tonight. And I made her pay close attention to the court scene so she didn't miss the meaning. Not sure if she got exactly what the message was - but she knew that the man wasn't able to do what they said he did with his hands -and that they still decided against him. She understood the meaning of 'to kill a mockingbird' at the end and how it related to the man who saved the children's lives. We'll watch it again in a few years -and she might get more.
