Unit Week

We finished up our unit week today...it could not have come sooner. Either I'm getting what the kids have or I'm just tired from them being sick, but my patience for this week is gone. At least they were struggling with different projects today, so I got a little reprieve. Tera didn't want to think hard enough to write her poem and Daniel was struggling with his art project. We probably should have taken a day off but we made it. Spring Break next week...WOOHOO!

We started the morning finishing up our reading about the Aztecs, Incas and the Mesopotamians. We wrote pyramid poetry and here are their much labored-for samples.

Tera's Poetry:

Cinquain-
Butterflies
Pretty Small
Caterpillar Insect Air
Flutter Fly
MOTH

Tanka-
Look at the flowers!
Roses, daisies, daffodils
Red, blue, purple, pink
Irises swaying in the wind.
Oh no, please don't pick those ones!

Daniel's Poetry

Cinquain-
Zebra
black white
cheetah lion leopard
run swim
Horse

Tanka-
Mazey
Mazey , crazy Maze
He is fun to play, hooray!
Watch out! He might bark
Jumps high, runs fast, likes to dig
What a happy dog, he is!


We did Central American molas--art applique projects

We finished by reading about the various foods of the different cultures, while we ate chocolate bars and drank hot chocolate.
