Chickadee got to pick out a new color combination for her braces this week!
Chickadee recently used some of her allowance to buy a Sqoosh2Poof elephant, and he’s been her companion all over the house, which is no small feat given how huge he is! He’s an especially good math buddy in the early morning:
Chickadee had a fun time rolling out the dough for the dessert empanadas we made on Sunday!
Today we had our first indoor field trip since before the beginning of the pandemic! We toured pretty much the only place I feel comfortable being inside with the yet-to-be-vaccinated Chickadee, a place we already go every week…our church!
Lucky for me, our church is a historic location, and in the lead-up to Reformation Day, I thought it would be fun to look at local church history, so it was the perfect place to start. Chickadee had a great time, and we all learned a lot!
On Tuesday we visited the St. Louis Zoo, and Chickadee has a fun time seeing what she would look like as an Andean bear:
Chickadee is currently learning about China, so yesterday, we made a Chinese cucumber salad to go with dinner:
Chickadee has been busy cooking and baking new recipes with me to go along with her geography studies!
To wrap up the lesson on The Netherlands, yesterday she helped make Dutch egg and cheese for dinner. It was really delicious!
The next country on our list is Germany, so this morning, we baked a Pflaumenkuchen:
This is one of the most delicious classes I have ever taught!
Chickadee loved visiting the sunflower field this week!
Today we’re trying to make brigadeiro (a type of truffle or bonbon that I swore I would never make again after Rio 2016!), to go along with Chickadee’s geography lesson on Brazil:
Just one more picture from the first day of 4th grade!
