We have devoted a page in our binder just for Emma Kate. We were very excited when we saw that this book was dedicated to Dr. Seuss and Horton. We are all about Seuss around here, and have been for the past several months. Mainly because of this. Gracie was especially excited to discover a picture of Horton in the Emma Kate story. (You will have to search for it if you want to see it!)
I made up a copy work sheet for Grace to do, and we added this to our binder.
We all drew imaginary friends and added these to our binders. This is Gracie's friend Marcus.
I love the Enchanted Learning website. I found this really cute elephant puppet on this site. We just printed it, colored it and then cut it out. We have had alot of fun with our puppets. I also printed out some of the others from this site and we have been enjoyinhg numerous "puppet shows."
We just can't wait for the Author Fiesta for June!

Mark had religon class, and so we drove around looking for photo opportunities. This is Amy's view from the co-pilot's seat.
A family of Canadian geese. (Our only photo worthy nature sighting.)
Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed nice comfy seats for Matt's ballgame.
Kim enjoyed fun dirt play during Matt's game.
Keep your eye on the ball, Matt.
Down and ready.
A view of the fans.

It means that we will be studying all about this new wildlife (usually a bird) over the next several days.

Laura WhoDanny, looking good!
Amy and Laura during the final scene.
Gracie and friends stretch their legs at intermission.
A little hamming it up after the show.
Mark tries out his future in the theater.
Danny, and his assistant director, Becky.
We don't think that it would stop any water, but after a 30 minute effort, we finally got it to stand up long enough to snap this photo. Mark thought is was very fitting to use Patricia Polacco's autobiography as the top!
