After going over some of the lapbooking stuff yesterday, I decided that Princess Tarja and I would have fun doing a BUTTERFLY LAPBOOK. After all, little princesses usually love butterflies. Before we began, I made a POCKET LAPBOOK, then printed all of the work sheets and activity pages that were suggested on the site with the lapbook instructions. We learned about the letter "B" for "butterfly" and "C" for "caterpillar". We learned about the life cycle of butterflies, and watched THE LIFE CYCLE OF A MONARCH BUTTERFLY on youtube. We actually found several, similar videos as well as a couple of cartoony ones.
Princess Abbey took a test about human population for her Forestry and Wildlife Conservation course.
Later, we rented the movie, "Little Women", because she has been interested in the series, "Little Men". I really want her to read the book, but her book list for this year is a mile long.
Princess Melody had to turn in a paper for her World Civilizations course about the different dynasties in China. I typed it up for her while she got ready for work. It was an interesting paper, so I bet that she got a good grade.
Princess Abbey's birthday is coming up. I don't have a clue of what to get for her or what to do for a celebration. If you have any fun birthday ideas for a thirteen year old girl, please share them in the comments. Thank you!
