Here are some pictures from our first class this week. A lot of ideas came from my homeschooling online friend Jamin. You can find out about her classes here.
It was a busy hour and I only took four pictures since I was so busy- but it was very fun!
We discussed the first book in the Kaya series, called Meet Kaya. After I asked them some questions and we discussed the book, we made two fun crafts!

We had cranberry fritters for snack, the recipe is here: http://www.recipegoldmine.com/worldnativeam/cranberry-fritters.html
They tasted really good!
What a fun day! I am looking forward to next week talking about Kaya's Escape (book 2) and doing more crafts/ snack!
