American Girl class: Julie week 4

We had another fun American Girl class this week!

After we reviewed the book for this week, Julie and the Eagles, we discussed Earth Day. I used a few paragraphs from the Wikipedia info page here. We thought it was interesting that Earth Day rhymes with birthday! I read a little about what Earth Day is about, and the "anthem" at the end of the pages.

We also worked on our Geography Worksheets from California; One page for San Francisco; and a U.S. map to mark California, where Julie lived. We put them into the red geography folders that the girls use each semester.

Our craft was originally supposed to be a Woven Tree from That Artist Woman website. I reviewed the plan and decided it would be too hard to complete in our class time. So I changed my mind and decided to make beaded bracelets, like Ivy and Julie did in book 1.

I brought a bunch of beads that we had at home, some stretchy elastic cord and scissors. The girls had fun making patterns and different designs with the beads. I loved seeing what they came up with! Maybe next time I discuss Julie I can do the woven tree as an on-going project in the Julie classes.

 For Snack this week we had Sloppy Joes and Tang. What a blast from the past! The girls really liked it! I haven't had it since I was younger, and it was kinda like tangy orange juice!

 This girl (above) wore her head kerchief again in class!

 I liked the detail this cute blond girl put into her Golden Gate page...

The 2:00 class working on their bracelets and geography pages...

What a groovy class!

Ecclesiastes 4:12
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Exodus 28:28
The rings of the breastpiece are to be tied to the rings of the ephod with blue cord, connecting it to the waistband, so that the breastpiece will not swing out from the ephod.

Hosea 11:4
I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love. To them I was like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed them.
