Art and Music on Fridays and The Mayflower Compact

If I can get the plugin to work properly Caitlin and DJ will be enjoying kids songs on Kididdles, tomorrow. If I can't get the plugin to work they can read and sing along to the lyrics. This is a free website with tons of kids songs to download, print, and listen to.

Tomorrow is Art class as well. Since we have been learning about recycling this year, and inspired by my very crafty mother, we have decided to pain Halloween themes on jars that were washed and dried. I have some cute templates they can use to make the patterns to paint. I will share pictures when they are completed. DJ took shadow pictures yesterday. He got some really good shots, but we will do it again on a sunnier day. It is hard to take pictures of shadows and make them look right. We had fun doing it though. That was his 4H project for the week. DJ is reading The Mayflower Compact this week, with a book report. The video below is a short video to accompany any lessons about The Mayflower Compact.
