It was a big job. First they had to separate the different from the regular. Then compare the different with what they needed for their collections.
But it paid off. They found 5 more state quarters and several that they needed for their Canadian collection.
I was just about to tell them they had to clean up their toys when I found them playing chess together. They're lucky.
And this week starts our next unit for school. Poetry. I just finished reading a great idea book for teaching poetry so even though it's Saturday morning we got a jump start. The boys and I co-wrote this poem. E mentioned that we needed the 'and' at the beginning of the last sentence because 'it sounded better'.
