Well, we did manage to get some school work done today. Ashley & Jon finished up reading the dog sled unit plus some of the library books we had. Michael & Alli worked on their lap books.....they learned about the Four main breeds: Alaskan Malamute,Siberean Husky, Inuit/Eskimo & Alaskan Husky. They also learned about the positions of the dogs when they race. The Lead Dog is, of course, the one out front. Point follows directly behind the Lead Dog. The Wheel Dog is directly in front of the sled & the Swing Dogs are the ones in between. Jon read 'Akiak A Tale From the Iditarod' by Robert J. Blake. I read 'Aunt Lulu' by Daniel Pinkwater with Alli & Michael. I'm pretty sure we will be able to finish this up this week & then we can start on our Valentine unit next week. I don't know why I'm so excited to start the Valentine unit.....I really did enjoy this one about sled dogs & learned alot.
