School Time

School Time

I'm excited about our Summer school plans. On Friday the kids were a bit crazy so we ended our school time early -- Landon in tears said "But this is my favorite part of the day!!" I'll take that as a vote of success for our first week :)

Our school time this summer is focused on learning some Portuguese. We have a different theme each week (numbers, animals, shapes...) and the we're learning some Portuguese words around that theme, with a little bit of other practice on the side. We spend about an hour and a half, and the plan is to have school time 3 or 4 times each week.

Here's a sample of a school time plan from one of our days last week (learning the Portuguese alphabet)

And here's a short Animoto of Landon and Ellie's first week -- hooray for these great little kiddos!
