I had the boys write a little letter to Kim's daughter so we can *finally* get 'round to sending the Flat Stanleys in the mail to Tasmania. (Hopefully this afternoon or tomorrow, they'll be mailed!! Whoo! I am TWICE as disorganized with six children as I was with four.) We talked a little about Australia and Tasmania and how the seasons and animals are different. After school, I decided to buy myself some lunch time by popping on the Wiggles Safari with Steve Irwin. The boys watched baby J and the show as well. They decided that they MUST do a report on an Australian animal for homeschool. I told them they could do it tomorrow, but they insisted that they really, REALLY wanted to do this today. Um, ok! It's pretty much a copy of the facts they saw on TV in their own words. They aren't sure if this was social studies, science or English. What do you think?
