Reading: Alec read Life as a Ninja, Ancient Greece, A to Z Mysteries Detective Camp, and finished up Book 2 of Treasure Hunters. He also picked up the next few books in the A to Z Myseteries and read Mayflower Treasure Hunt, White House White out, and Sleepy Hollow Sleepover. Evan started reading Puppy Pirates, Stowaway!, National Geographic Penguins, finished another chapter in Miss Daisy is Crazy, and together we read Red; A Crayon's Story. Ian worked on finishing up book 3 of Treasure Hunters so Alec can take it to read and started reading Mayflower Treasure Hunt. We started reading book 5 of the 39 Clues and finished up another CD in The Silver Chair.
Science: We released our butterflies! (You can read about raising butterflies and find some book suggestions here)

|The boys picked out all the flowers; and really loved this one|
since it looked like it was one fire.
We spent a bit of time at the pet store picking out new fish for Alec's tank and buying our cat a collar with a bell; this was very important to Evan since we've been reading about how many birds pets kill each year in all of our birding books.
We read Birdsongs, A Place for Birds, and Butterfly House. Alec read A Puffin's Year. Evan and I read his Ranger Rick Jr. magazine learning all about dolphins and other animals.
Math: Ian finished up 6 more pages in his percents books and started reading How to Turn $100 into a Million. Alec worked on six pages in his math workbook & Evan completed six more in his clock book. The older two boys worked on two more pages in their Are You A Math Genius? Books.
Spelling/ Writing/ Language Arts: Alec and Ian finished up their cursive workbooks this week. Each of the boys completed two more pages in each of their spelling workbooks. Evan completed a few more pages in his Minecraft activity book working with crossword and word search puzzles.
Art: We made symmetry butterflies; pouring paint onto a paper and folding it in half. It was so fun to see what colors they mixed up. (You can find directions here).
They also had a fun afternoon using liquid watercolors and squirt guns to paint some pictures. (Read about it here).
Physical Education: The boys went swimming and tubing this week. Alec tried very hard to learn how to flip into the water off the dock while Evan devoted an afternoon trying to master diving. We also played at the park, rode bikes and scooters, and they raged a few water gun fights too.
