Easter Break – catching up on some updates

24 Mar

Pork Chop had his solo and ensemble competition last weekend.  He scored 1st place on his clarinet duet, 1st place superior on his Pep ensemble, and 1st place on his clarinet solo.  The only thing they said he really needed to work on was RELAX.  So that’s a good thing.  I am really proud of him.

He’s also making headway on his independent project.  He’s decided to look into 3D animation and the coding involved in it.  So that’s a lot of research and a lot of work.  It’ll be interesting to see what he comes up with.

Pumpkin is spending a lot of time exploring and it has been helping with her temperament at home. She tends to lash out and be extremely whiney and pouty when she doesn’t get her outside time.  She also has spontaneously started addition and through that is starting to figure out basic multiplication.  Things like 2 + 2 = 2 X 2 and 2 + 2 + 2 = 2 X 3.  Really amazing stuff.

Squirrel is now counting only 2 1/2 and he can count up to 12 and understands that the numbers can represent how many.  He’s a whiz at his colors too.  Purple is his favorite.

And last, but not least, Hummingbird says please and thank you, hello, bye-bye, and yes and no.  She’s learning her routine, especially at bedtime (she loves to brush her teeth).  She’s such a charmer.

So, learning is happening everyday. You’ve just got to know where to look.
