This was our first week back after a long period away. With the move and Ron leaving, I put formal sit down learning on the back burner. This week we continue learning about the continent of Africa with the country of Somalia. When I showed it to the kids on the world map, Bella promptly said, "It looks like a 7!" Why, yes it does! And now I can easily spot Somailia on a world map.
Along with Somalia, we're learning about African animals in general. Somalia's symbol is the Cheetah, so C is reading about this amazing animal. Last night we read Looking for Miza a book about gorillas in the Congo. It's so sad to hear how few of these beautiful animals are left. Looking for Miza is an amazing book, I highly suggest it. Here is a correlating website.
Yesterday we were excited to be invited by our friends on a nature walk at the Rio Grande Nature Center. Our nature study was about cattails. We also got to see hummingbirds, tadpoles, turtles, and the mighty Rio Grande. We had a great time & it was so good to see Cari & her kids!
Today we're hoping to make it to ¡GLOBALQUERQUE! at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
So this is our week. How was yours?
