The Clown of God
We've spent the last week with The Clown of God. Tomie dePaola is one of our favorites! There is also a DVD of this story we were able to get from our library.
We read through a lot of go alongs this week! We're still waiting on The Little Juggler to come in from the library, so we may spend a day on this when we start back after Christmas.
We also used The Renaissance Connection.
Giovanni meets up with two Little Brothers in the story, so we learned a little about Saint Francis.
We tried out some suncatchers. After having the beads roll out multiple times, Jack sat his aside--we'll finish it up over break.
Sister discovered that it is much easier if you dump all the beads in at once.
We had stained glass cookies for tea time--sugar cookies with Jolly Ranchers melted in the middle.
We used lapbooking pieces from Homeschool Share.
We'll finish up these pages with a picture of Jack's suncatcher and pieces for The Little Juggler.
Now we're starting a few days with The Legend of the Candy Cane before Christmas break!
