Daddy and Me Photo Contest, Painted Sand Dollars
Woman's Day, one of my favorite magazines is having a Daddy and Me photo contest. The winning picture will win a brand new camcorder. Simply send a picture of your husband, brother, father, whomever is a dad in your family doing something touching with a child to http://www.womansday.com/daddy The best picture wins the camcorder. I already own a camcorder so I won't enter. I wish the prize was something else because I have some really cool daddy pictures. Good luck to any of you who enter.
A few weeks ago for art class, DJ and Caitlin, painted on some sand dollars. Here are the end results. We used paint pens. I think they are new because I don't recall ever seeing them before. They are less messy than a paint brush, and easier to control than a paint brush.
We only have two full weeks of school left, and we will continue to review what we have learned this year. I continue to work on next years curriculum, and lessons. One of the things I have had the hardest time with was choosing a reading set for Caitlin. She did awesome with Hooked on Phonics, but really only like 1/4 of the program that was included. So I don't want to purchase another whole set. I think I finally decided on a set from Evan Moore. I have never purchased from them but they have a lot of interesting, and unique programs, and work books. Kinderdoodle is another one that I really like.
