Highlights of the Week
Woo-hoo! We are all officially on vacation! My husband and I started our break on Wednesday and used the extra time to catch up with shopping, present wrapping, and sending out our Christmas presents and cards. I cannot wait to spend the next two weeks playing with LEGOs, going hiking (if the weather cooperates), watching movies, and simply hanging out with my family.
For the past 6 weeks all sixth graders were hard at work learning about ancient Egypt via project-based approach. The final output was an interactive Ancient Egypt history museum. Students were divided into teams where each team worked on their own topic. Smarty was in Arts and Architecture. I will probably write about it more after New Year, but this has been a great learning experience for her, and she was very proud to share her team's work with an entire school and other visitors.
Smarty was a little stressed earlier this week with all last minute tasks related to her Egyptian Museum project, but she cheered up by Wednesday. She will still continue going to taekwondo during her winter break - in fact, she is testing for her first "real" belt next Tuesday. She also begged us to watch old seasons of The Amazing Race on Amazon Prime - she finds this show both educational and entertaining at the same time.
