We read "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and then acted it out using a chair as the bridge. Michael and Patrick took turns playing the troll.
We also made "About Me" books which included all kinds of pictures and collages they had made about themselves their families. Here's where you can throw up because I'm posting this picture Patrick drew that I think is SO AMAZING (that's your gag reflex cue). As I read through blog archives last night I came across his first recognizable picture, a frog, and I'd said I was excited to see his stick-figure families in the future... well, I think we skipped straight over stick figures! I about fell over when he brought the picture to me, complete with hearts in everyone's chests. He wrote all the names himself, but needed help spelling Caroline.
Finally, we did some interviews today to begin wrapping up our time together and sing our "Joy school pep song," which I totally screwed up the first time around. Anyway, fun times! We'll have to start looking for families in Pueblo who would like to do it, too.
