Week 36 – Strange World Results

Pegasus liked this movie. He says “I liked it! It was good,” and when pressed about what parts exactly he liked, he says “I liked all of it!”

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Music

His scales are coming along nicely and he willingly practises both his scales and the pieces in the book. He’s only 20 pages away from finishing the first book.

Basic Information

We are working on the day before and the day after any given day. The months of the year is going well. All months have proper pronounciation now, and we’re working on the month before and after any given month. That’s coming slowly.

We practised the seasons, but he still needs help remembering them in French.

Printing words

Pegasus has forgotten to drop his p’s below the line, and didn’t care to fix it. Great g on page 1 though.

Counting objects/math-type activities

This week, he had trouble with the direction of his 7’s. He fixed them.

Math worksheets. Zero problems with these, after we walked through the series on page 2.

Storytime

We have no French library books this week, so he read some French books through Boukili.

Activity

Draw by number – he was very excited to trace the puppy

Garden – It was very hot, but Pegasus stuck it out. He preferred collecting the discarded stuff and watering. He was not a fan of getting his hands dirty, even though he was wearing gloves (tbh, that tracks). He helped plant zucchini.

Learn about body systems – he was deeply invested in the videos and answered the quiz questions at the end of each one correctly.

If Instagram existed in 2003, this is what Jason would’ve posted during the book Monsters! Incidental Wedding Guests.

Week 37 – Curious George

This is one of the cutest movies I’ve ever seen. I find it a challenge to watch it without smiling. It also has SO MANY potential activities, it’s hard to just pick 3.

Week 35 – Brave Results

Pegasus enjoyed this movie, especially the antics of the triplets (I’m shocked, I tell you). I thought it was funny that he made a book about a bear last week, when this week was the movie about a bear, but I guess it’s just a coincidence.

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Music

His scales are coming along nicely and he willingly practises both his scales and the pieces in the book. He’s only 20 pages away from finishing the first book.

Basic Information

We are working on the day before and the day after any given day. The months of the year is going well. All months have proper pronounciation now, and we’re working on the month before and after any given month. That’s coming slowly.

We practised the seasons, but he still needs help remembering them in French.

Printing words

I had to draw the lines in because the printer decided not to work properly. Pegasus decided to completely ignore the lines in retaliation lol

Counting objects/math-type activities

He wrote the 9 and 6 backward, but he fixed them without complaint.

Math worksheets. Zero problems with these. He was extremely proud of his star. His 7 was backward again, but he fixed it no problem.

Storytime

We have no French library books this week, so he read some French books through Boukili.

Activity

Elements of a fairy tale – We discussed what elements are in fairy tales, and how the movie showed (or tweak) them. Then, Pegasus came up with a fairy tale of his own, which was so much fun! Here it is:

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away, there lived a king with a daughter. She had lots of special powers, like healing, turning invisible, and being really good at hiding. A witch heard about these special powers and wanted them for her own, so she snuck into the castle and stole the princess away! She turned the princess into a talking frog and put her in a tower, far away from the kingdom she had grown up in. The witch told the princess that she had seven nights to figure out how to turn back into a human, or else she would remain a frog for all time, and her powers would belong to the witch. The princess, on the first night, turned invisible and snuck out of the tower. She knew that if she made it back to her kingdom, she would return human. Her journey home was fraught (my word lol) with danger. She fought off a snake that wanted to eat her, but she escaped. She was almost eaten by a crocodile, but she escaped. She was almost eaten by a heron, but she escaped. At long last, she made it to her kingdom. The instant she crossed the border, she became human again, right before the clock struck midnight on the seventh night. Her father was so happy to have her home once more.

Make spell cake – We did not make spell cake, and instead made iced cookies from Dragon’s Disney cookbook. Pegasus loved making these. They were extremely drippy and messy, but they were delicious!

Learn about bears – He enjoyed the video about bears for kids and randomly spouted facts the next day that he’d gotten from the video, so I gather he paid attention.

Monsters! Incidental Wedding Guests Style Comps

“Monsters! Incidental Wedding Guests” is an Urban Fantasy Romance. What happens when superheroes plan a wedding? Monsters, that’s what.

Kennedy and Jason are ready to get married. They just have to deal with evaporating monsters first.

There are several other books and TV shows that have a similar style, in one way or another, to our book. Here are the images I made with all the covers of the style comparisons.

Summary

The week before Kennedy and Jason’s wedding is busy. There are cake tastings, dress fittings, a formal ball, and, as their superhero personas the Phantom and the Wraith, fighting monsters.

These behemoths are destructive, smell like snack food, and are only after one thing: Door Tech Industries technology.

Adding to the chaos are their friends and families; Jason’s grandmother has returned after having been missing for half a century, Kennedy’s mom is dead-set on keeping things traditional, and Jason’s best friend is kidnapped before the rehearsal.

Kennedy and Jason just want to get married, preferably before the next monster attack.

The second book of four in The Gates of Westmeath series.
