There has been some reading. I found Gabe reading a book about ancient egypt to all of his animals on Gorilla Mountain. He said that they were actually reading their own books. To share a little about the Mountain set. We got it for his birthday and he loves it. I highly recommend it. The whole set folds up nicely for storage. It is really sturdy too. He has had it for a whole week and nothing is broken yet. That says a lot because 90% of the time the kid breaks something within the first 24 hours of having it (that is usually on purpose to).
We are working on a couple of different lapbooks right now. Sam is working on one about Japan and then as a group we are working on about Zoos and Zoo keepers.
There has been some painting going on. Our Friend is going to have a baby any day now. She is doing his nursery all in superheroes. I thought a nice gift from the boys would be to make some original art work for the nursery. I gave them each a canvas a told them to create what they thought a superhero should be. Gabe (who is really into transformers) created bumblebee (on the left). Sam went a little more original. He created Smart Man (on the right). Smart Man saves the world with the use of books.
