Study Up

So little time .... so much to study.
'A' made flashcards using his notes, then, as he went through them he'd hole punch the card when he got the questions correct.
(Super easy method for tracking which questions you've done/understood and which ones you need to do again.)
Studying with friends is fun too. Here they are trying to put the major History events on a timeline.
 
We did Pictionary with science terms (fulcrum, compound pulley, wedge, inclined plane, etc.) ........
and a T/F quiz.

I don't want to leave E out of the post.
There's not as many opportunities to snap his picture but I do what I can.
 
In my last post there was a picture of Charlie that seemed to give the impression he had grown a significant amount. Without anything in the photo with which to compare him I can see how that mistake could be made. So ..... here's the picture again with a point of reference.
Still small. Just how I like him.

A Small Sample of Daily ?? From A

Will we ever start living in space Is there life on other planets Will our world become like Star Trek How many other species haven’t we discovered yet Do you think China will ever take over the world Do you think the world will ever be ruled by an animal species Do you other species from other planets will ever attack earth When did you learn to cook When did you last eat Mr. Noodles What’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever done How many more minutes until I’ll be called in for my ortho appointment Can we not do school today Can we go to Tim Hortons for lunch Will you make me lunch What would happen if you cooked a croissant without rolling it What do you think the dog is thinking Am I part Irish Am I part Englishish Am I part German Will you buy me something if I get good marks on my test What’s for dinner When is dad coming home What’s Isaiah doing now

A for Effort

Budgeting/building activity on Monday.
Each item used to build costs a certain amount of $$. 
The challenge was to build the tallest building while still remaining on budget.

 And here's his face after.
