I've been meaning to blog about our last couple days of school.
We had a review of FIAR material we'd covered over the year. I went through the year's notebooks and came up with forty questions. I ran out of time thinking up questions and didn't even get to the last two books we rowed. K did really well with answering my questions. She loves poring over the notebooks on her own time.
Like last year, we gathered all the books we'd rowed and I asked K which was her favorite. She couldn't decide on just one this time.
She liked Mirette on the High Wire and A New Coat for Anna best this year.
T, watching the goings on, wanted me to take a picture of him with his favorite FIAR book, too.
His choice? Make Way for Ducklings.
We finished the year with a Field Day. This included some very simple competitive activities: Jump the Creek, See How Fast You Can Run Around the House, and so on. The grand finale was a water balloon toss. This was fun. I must admit it had been so long since I'd made a water balloon that it took me some tries to remember how to make them. After giving the kitchen a shower I remembered you pinch the balloon shut before tying the knot. Ah well. The kids thought it was funny.
