Red Riding Hood

So yesterday we started a little deeper and faster in our Germany study. Randy took the kids aside and worked with them on their flashcards for their vocab words. Next they read the background story of Little Red Riding Hood. Afterwards they read some interpretations and opinions on the moral of the piece. They were thrilled to find out that there was cannibalism involved in some versions. Go figure. I have dark and twisted kids. They then watched the movie Red Riding Hood that just came out with a werewolf interpretation. Not too shabby of a movie but we all werent that crazy about the ending.

We also went and registered for the library's summer reading program. We will see how long it takes them to get it done. 

Today the kids are  reviewing their cards again and doing a few more worksheets.Tonight we are heading to Chicago to see an old friend of mine and to visit their Aunt. Can't Wait!
