One of the things that we had to do each week was to practice spelling words. I really dislike practicing homework. Actually I really dislike homework in general. Now that I have to deal with homework on a daily basis it makes me rethink homework as a teacher. I tried to make their spelling words more interesting by doing different things with them. Sometimes Natalie would write her spelling words with play-doh or in a pan of flour (those may have been things we did in kindergarten but I don't remember exactly). This time I made them use their bodies to spell out the words. I'm not entirely sure what they are spelling here. Let me know if you can figure it out.
Natalie decided to be a one person band one day. She tried to figure out how to play as many instruments as possible at one time. She is playing the drum with a maraca, jumping up and down to play the tambourine, and humming on the harmonica.
The school district had an art show in February at the library. There was an opening evening where we went to see their pieces. Both N2 had artwork on display and were very proud to show us their work. Noah had a clay owl and Natalie a Monet bridge. We took Grandma and Grandpa Weidner to the library to see their artwork as well (I think Aunt Lisa, Charlie and Lily saw them too).
