#5thOnThe5th: The 5th Day of 5th Grade
#5thOnThe5th: A New Year
It’s January 5th, 2015 (1/5/15) and it is the first day of 5th grade for KC & KJ here at MunroePalms Learning Centre. As usual, the 1st day NEVER goes as planned. So even though what I planned was short and light, to be followed by a trip to the Botanical Garden for a nature walk. We did not make it to the botanical garden.
Well, we began our day with a nature study of a different kind. When MrC. attempted to place the box of Christmas decorations in the storage shed he discovered a couple of frogs had made themselves a winter hideaway. He immediately solicited the twins’ assistance in gently evicting these special guests. They were successful and made a comfy place for the little amphibians in a bucket. I observed from a safe distance.
After that excitement settled down I was able to make progress on reintroducing the CORE 3: Bible, Math, & English. Then, MrC. surprised us all with a trip to the pet store for new fish.
5 fish for 5th grade.
Since we didn’t have time to drive across town to the botanical garden, I took the boys to one of the parks close by. But, I didn’t realize that both boys also brought along their reading books. As soon as we arrived KC & KJ sat on the swings reading.
Seriously! I had to confiscate their books and tell them to “Go Play!”
Until next time, remember:
You’re Growing Greatness.
