We did a lot of activities this week, as well as hitting the basics. We incorporate a lot of different methods, including the traditional Math U See, Grammar books, etc and the less traditional learning fractions through baking, watching Good Eats and incorporating those ideas into science and math studies. Chocolate and pancakes? Chocolate and milk? Chocolate and mashed potatoes? Definitely a good book for kids! Mark them on your graph, and toss them back in.
I've long considered "The Squeaky Wheel" my best work. Now, after being out-of-print, it is once more available. It's a story that deals with a tough subject, divorce, without flinching or sugar-coating anything. You'll like Mark Baker and root for him when his nice simple world falls apart. Right from the beginning when he faces a new start in a new school where he has no friends.

He likes it bitter, sweet, dark, light, and daily; for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks; in cakes, candy bars, milk, and every other form you can possibly imagine. Henry probably loves chocolate more than any boy in the history of the world.
