My dear little C. woke us up this morning (at an unspecified o'dark o'clock) with a happy look on her face. She then proceeded to tell us of her dream. "It was wonderful...I dreamed of...homework." She loves doing "work." I asked her what homework she was thinking of...
"North America...Africa...Australia...and Antarctica...these are the seven continents in our whole wide world..."
I am so proud of my little ones.
We have been studying the globe.
I made up a song about the continents.
I find my kids remember things better in song.
Driving home last night they burst out into song (alright, C. started singing and then she begged W. to sing too...being a decent older brother he obliged but reminded her it was "just this one time.")
(Sung to 10 little Indians)
"North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica
These are the seven continents, in our whole wide world."
Grandma has also been doing work with the kiddos when I go to work. C. always wants to show me what she has done with great pride.
