Sign language for all the family

Learning sign language (American) is a daily lesson for us now, and to help us all along (as all the family are learning) we`ve put together a notebook in which we can write each word and also put a photo of the sign, here is Aideen doing just some of the signs we`ve learned so far.
Also this week we are learning a lot about the foods that Jennifer and family eat that we dont have here...and swapping recipies , for example wereas we make "rice-krispie" buns they make them with marshmallows melted (yum!) instead of melting cooking chocolate as we do...
And in English this week we`ve studied that famous poem "A host of golden daffodils"...by William Wordsworth , as well as reading and discussing the poem Aideen had drawn different daffodils and also drawn what she thought the poet saw and felt as he wrote the poem.
Science this friday will be taken by Deborah who is doing "recycling"...so we`re looking forward to that !
And the project Aideen made on Florida (you may rememebr that) is actually being taken into a class in Florida by a teacher friend of Marthas for "show and tell" !!!!!!
Also this week Aideens been working hard on maths and the planets , this week we`ve studied Jupiter in detail...and yes, Daisy is STILL painting LOL...
