Target has a great sale on school stuff right now. This year I couldn’t stop myself from picking up the set of flashcards with the landmarks of the world. Anna was very excited. She spread them all on the table and said, Let’s play a game. Each will pick a card and tell a story about a card. If we all do a good job, we will have a chocolate chip cookie party (she got it from The Blabber Report book that was one of her favorites last week). Here is her story about Urulu (also known as Ayers Rock).
This Rock was stuck in the middle of Australia and was feeling lonely. It had nobody to talk to and no friends. So The Rock decided to go on a trip. First it went to a big city with an opera house and listened to some music. Then it went to… Europe! It saw Eiffel Tower and then it went to Russia to pick mushrooms. But it was too cold, and The Rock didn’t bring warm clothes. So he went to America and that’s where he is now.
She also sorted landmarks into made-by-nature and man-made. She was fascinated by Mount Rushmore that is sort of both and asked if we can go there on our next vacation. Well, at least, it’s somewhat closer than, say, Urulu. I suggested to her to pick a destination for our next virtual trip. Luckily (and unexpectedly), she chose The Tower of Pisa. Read more tomorrow about our trip to Pisa.
