But first, The Nip Napper turns 2!
My two oldest decided to build their model airplanes and work together on a model of the Leaning Tower of Pisa .
|A work in progress!|
My daughter and I started work an apron for her AND one for her doll. We did get a good amount done --- but, as usual, projects take a lot longer than planned!
This week also saw the kids doing a lot of reading. My oldest in particular tackled the rest of Stalin, Hitler AND The Hitler Youth which lead to some very deep discussion. It's almost surreal to him that the whole Nazi movement COULD happen and that so many lost their lives. It made a bold statement to him not to follow any mortal man so blindly!
|Hitler and Stalin - part of this week's selected reading|
|More reading about WWII|
|Literature selection circa WWII|
In addition to historical readings, each child took a book from above for their literature study. With all that went on this week, we still need to sit down to watch "Sound of Music" together.
And, my daughter started the American Girl, Molly.
|American Girl Molly|
I do have to say that out of all the American Girls we've read/studied so far, Molly is our least favorite. There was a lot of boy/girl teasing/pranks in the first book that just didn't sit well with us. (Though not an AG book, The Hundred Dresses touched my daughter with the hardships Polish immigrants suffered when they came to the US).
|A little Molly reading!|
Next week, more lapbooking for my daughter on her American Girl lapbook, my boys on their Modern History lapbook -AND - model plane kits from Consumer Crafts!
