American Girl class: Kit Week 5

Blogger was giving me problems yesterday... hopefully I've got it figured out, so here is yesterday's post!

Since last Thursday was Thanksgiving, I didn't post about our Kit class last week, so this is the "make-up" post about Kit Week 5!

After we reviewed our book, we discussed the hobo code, and I gave the girls some more hobo code on a white board to guess. I got some more ideas from the Welcome to Kit's World book, on page 10-11. I also read the "Girl Hobo" story on page 13.

Then we began our craft, which was Reporter Notebooks, much like Kit may have written in. I bought small spiral-bound notebooks on sale in August during school supply season. The girls each got one notebook, a piece of red card stock measuring 3" x 4 3/4". I also gave them a piece of white cardstock measuring 1 3/4" X 4 3/4".

First, they decorated the white cardstock with stamps and stamp pads. Several of the girls made really cute designs, and great color combinations. After the white cardstock was all decorated, they applied glue to the back and glued it in the center of the red piece. Then the girls glued the red piece of cardstock to the notebook front. The girls enjoyed the craft, and several even stamped on the inside of the notebook! If you don't have a supply of rubber stamps on hand as I do, then you can use stickers instead.

For snack, we had boiled potatoes, pinto beans and bread, as Kit was given in jail. None of our food was moldy or cold though! Most of the girls liked the snack, even though it was plain (as it was planned to be!) One of the moms made homemade bread which was still warm! Yum!

To complete our class hour, I read about the Cincinnati Union Terminal in the Welcome to Kit's World book, on page 14-15. It was another fun class, I can't believe we only have one week left-- where did our semester go?!

Exodus 26:14
Make for the tent a covering of ram skins dyed red, and over that a covering of the other durable leather.

Joshua 2:20-22

But if you tell what we are doing, we will be released from the oath you made us swear.
 “Agreed,” she  (Rahab) replied. “Let it be as you say.”

So she sent them away, and they departed. And she tied the scarlet cord in the window.

When they left, they went into the hills and stayed there three days, until the pursuers had searched all along the road and returned without finding them.
