    We're going to look at tall tales/fables/fairy tales.  I think I broke my back picking up all the books the library had!  Work on addition facts, multiplication facts, Latin and Spanish, finish up our fall gardening unit, and Friday is my son's presentation on Native Americans!

    We finished our ETC book and I am putting off the review on it till the Teacher's manual gets here, so for English we are just working on writing a friendly letter this week.  History is Ancient China. Science we start Space this week and DS and I are both looking forward to it.  Math is clocks.  And we have to work on his presentation on sea life for Friday's Co-op.

     We are learning all things China.

    Over the weekend we learned about how bugs can decimate a garden in short order. We also learned about replacing ceiling fans & balancing them. Oh & we learned what all the parts are in mattresses as we disassembled some because there is no place to take them to recycle them here.
