Today was a big day!
First we did a chapter if Life of Fred. We only have one chapter left in Butterflies! While I showered I had BK work on language arts, today he learned more about prefixes. He found it exciting.
Then we learned about ancient Chinese mythology and how they thought the whole world came from a giant egg. It was a pretty neat story.
Science was another sky sample so we could compare between the two days. BK thought it was a little silly but he liked drawing it so close enough!
Then it was time for the big deal of the day, the last chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! The kids both loved it and they thought it was REALLY cool that the factory became Charlie’s.
After the mail got here we watched the original Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory (from the 70’s). They loved it and I really enjoyed watching a movie I hadn’t seen in ages. BK noticed several places where the movie didn’t match the book and we discussed why (such as a room with geese vs a room with 100 squirrels). It was fun to see him ask questions and to know what was coming next, showing me he did pay attention to the book. I thought he had but it is always nice to know for sure!
