Five in a Row - Truman's Aunt Farm

Truman's Aunt Farm,

I have to admit it took me a while to get why it was called this... you see up here in the north we say Aunt with the AU sound we don't say it ANT.  LOL

So in this row we covered many things...

Character Traits- Truman was kind, loving and wise. So we talked about Samantha's traits and the traits she would like to nurture and the ones she might want to stop.  It was interesting to see how she thought of herself and I have to say she was totally right!  Samantha is kind, considerate, loving, emotional, a good friend, compassionate, determined, head strong, a very encouraging person and so much more.

I had Samantha take the time to write 2 letters. She mailed out one to her Aunt Lyette and one to her Aunt Chris. They both were surprised to receive it.  Aunt Lyette wrote her back. It was a lesson on how to write a letter and address the envelope.

Now onto the part that had me a little confused at first until I heard one of Sam's friends calling her aunt ANT. LOL  We talked about Homonyms.  Made a list of them.  We talked about Repetition in stories.

I wish I took a picture of the picture she drew using the art techniques for faces it had her doing.  When I do I will post it here.

After she wrote the letters I had her go to the post office and buy 2 stamps and mail them.  This gave her the whole experience of mailing the letter.

In science she learned all about ants she even made a toilet paper roll ant. I couldn't take a picture the cat had fun with it.

Sorry nothing exciting here for this story no pictures or exciting activities. Just some quiet bonding time reading and learning.
