This morning we are doing a relaxed abbreviated school day as we have to get some packing done and other things to venture out of town with dh. DD will do some reading later via Starfall and some copywork and a math worksheet.

Today we read, If you want to see a caribou. Good book about what one has to do (travel via boat, look for certain signs, sit quietly, etc.) in order to see a caribou. Also, a good page at the end about the state of caribou in the U.S. and Canada and conservation efforts.

Continuing to nurture the desire to learn Spanish, we also read Counting Ovejas. As the little child heads to sleep he counts sheep so the book counts from 1 to 10 and also covers colors even turquoise or turquesa. The kids enjoyed it and we continued our work on pronunciation. Very gentle introduction and nice artwork.
