We discussed and wrote samples of symbolism. We have been studying poetry through the kids favorite songs. We discussed items in the newspaper. We also watched "the 5th estate". Last night they aired an episode called "they should have stayed home". It was about the way the police treated protestors at last years G20.
We discussed that including the issue of a police officer telling a detained protestor that this was martial law. You see there is no martial law in Canada since the enactment of the Emergencies Act under which civil rights are to remain in place.
After lunch we had gym inside and then learned about mosaics while making some. I bought a mosaic my number kit from dollarama with foam tiles. The pictures were not very Roman so I printed off a Roman mosaic for Ko-Ko and Runner to do. I made a basic outline of it for them.
Ko-Ko and Indy are done. SW is at homeschool drama and Sunny Not is on her way home from school. I am re-bleaching hair for the three oldest kids for their manic panic hair colours. Then I am off to work and Runner to karate....if he ever finishes his mosaic.
