Piper, Leo, and Jason go on a quest to rescue Hera, the queen of the gods in greek mythology. Soon along their quest they meet horrible monsters that want to rise their ruler Gaea (mother earth) who is suprisingly a bad villan.
I played soccer with friends and a group of kids this summer.
Went to the park and listened with my family to music from different countries and different styles.
read and compared lots of kinds of books and learned how to look up books we want to read on the computer.
First Nana showed us how to find different kinds of books on the computer and then on the shelf. Then we read 2 kinds of poetry books and compared them: Jack Prelutsky's "Be glad your nose is on your face" and Shel Silverstein's "A light in the attic". Then we read a "song" book by John Denver: "Take me home country road". Then we read "Perfect Square" by Michael Hall and "Fairy Kisses" by Patrick Regan.
We read "the Statue of Leberty" by Debra Hess to see how it was built, also "What is an artist?" by Barbara Lehn & "Buildings in disguise" by Joan Marie Arbogast. Then we traveled Ford Rd to see the new DDA sculptures, then we looked around for more kinds of art at the library and found lots! this was more fun than we thought it would be!
