Yes, another homeschooling blog...

P'once a little time there was a girl. This girl grew up to be a Mamma to three little girls all very much like herself. And this little Mamma knew she just had to have a place of her own to keep all things home school right at her fingertips.

Just kidding.  We ran through the list and talked about the job of being President. We took special note of the first and last ones (She likes to think of them as Curious George and Broccoli.)

We are memorizing The Pledge of Allegiance:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all. 

We're drawing pictures of the American Flag and learning how to draw stars. 

We also started a new book about 6 dutch school children searching for a wagon wheel to adorn their school's rooftop for cranes to nest in their town of Shora: The Wheel on the School by Meindert DeJong. Chapters 1, 2 and 3

She's been begging me to teach her to knit, so I might pull out the loom and have her work on that as well.

In the evening we made masks and a tambourine to celebrate Mardi Gras.
