Yesterday (Friday Jan. 16th) Sagan worked on words that end in "og" and subtraction with the number "6". Then he, Cae and I played the Harvest game, a wonderful co-operative game in which everyone works together to get the crops in before winter sets in ( http://www.blueberryforest.com/fun_games/harvest-time-game-family-pastimes.htm ).
Today (Jan. 17th) the boys and I made play dough using this recipe
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp cream of tartar
2 cups water
4 Tbsp oil
mix it well to get rid of lumps, then heat on stove top until it comes together and changes constistancy (looks like play dough). we divided it up into three sections then added a different package of unsweetened "kool-aid" to each. One grape, one cherry and one orange. You kneed the still warm dough together with the "kool-aid" and you get pretty good colors and a neat smell.
Tomorrow we will finish up our lesson on hibernation and make bears in caves with the play dough.
