We finished "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" and read some other read-alouds, "No Flying in the House" by Betty Brock, "Black and Blue Magic" by Zilpha Keatley Snyder and "The Famous Five, book 1" by Enid Blyton.

We read part of "What is a Constitution?" and talked about the big picture concepts. I've also read one of the "Sir Cumference" math books to Ben and I really loved it! We will be looking for more Sir Cumference books in the future.

Right now, I'm getting ready to sign everyone up for summer camps. I missed the animation and rocketry camps for Ben because we were out of town when members-only signup began. It looks like the Roamer Robotics camp is still open so I'll try to register for that one today.

The Roamer Robotics camp is designed for his age level, but I need to find out which math skills it requires so we can brush up on those. Speaking of math, I'm looking for some "math puzzles" that the kids fell in love with on vacation. Our rental villa had these puzzles with multiplication problems on the back of each piece; the answer revealed which slot the piece should go into. They were obsessed with them! I guess it's a fun way to memorize multiplication facts.

I need to get them ready for co-op right now...
