As we spent time learning about pigeons in our last Five in a Row book, Daniel began to be very interested in the birds around us. Our next FIAR book was also about birds which helped to encourage this new interest even more.
Its harder than it looks or seems which I think was a surprise to some of them that had never been before.
Eliana didn't even try. After we tried roller skating last month - which she hated, I figured this would not be on her top 10 list. We hung out in the lobby with some other young friends that weren't skating. Daniel loved it and is hoping to go back again during the summer.
Just liked this photo of these beautiful young ladies. :)
As part of our Robin Hood co-op, we talked about fires and then proceeded to make one. Each person worked to gather materials, build a fire and then strike flint to get it going.
We also played some medieval games during one of our co-ops with Robin Hood. (We also did some inside work but that doesn't always make for great photos, kwim?) One of them is jingling where the person who is it is NOT blindfolded and everyone else is. Nice twist, huh? "It" has bells which he jingles and the others try to catch him.
This game begins with “It” being blindfolded. The other players then stand in a line and ask “It” for directions. “It” tells them how many steps to take forward backward, left, or right they must go. Then “It” is led to the starting point and must follow his own directions. When “It” has reached the final destination, he must try to touch another player. The other players may duck or sway to avoid being touched, but they cannot move their feet. If a player is tagged, then he is the next “It” otherwise “It” must try again.
More (hopefully tomorrow) on our next FIAR co-op... Albert.
