So Far At Rivendell Elementary...

Pin It Now!
We have constructed a glow-in-the-dark Solar System (minus Pluto)














built a volcano while studying The Buried City of Pompeii













We were a bit disappointed that the red food coloring stayed down in the bottle. Oh well, they got the idea of how a volcano works.











We have grown salt crystals while studying The Dead Sea Scrolls













and baked yummy heart-shaped sugar cookies while learning about the martyr, St. Valentine.

















So far we have been very busy bees! I am finally in a pretty good routine but still haven't managed to fit in cursive writing yet. So many subjects, so little time! Well, I guess its not more time I need, just less Shiloh!! Just kidding. She is wonderful, but it is quite the challenge to work school around that always-on-the-go girl!

Pompeii and the Dead Sea Scrolls...Wow, 4 years of college and I've been outlearned by two kids less than a third my age.

I don't know what to think about the whole Pluto thing. Every pneumonic device I had to learn as a kid to remember the planets has been negated. My Very Excited Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas cannot handle the needed editing!

Want that Volcano to really blow...put a coke inside, drop in a Mentos candy & back up!!! Yes, this really works...trust me (Hee Hee!) If you use a 2 liter...it will blow REALLY high! Go for it...it's worth a buck to watch the show. The boys will get a laugh for sure!

Mullin's personal mnemonic phrase was, Mullin's very excited making jumping statues under Nikki's porch. So yeah, I guess he will have to come up with a new one!!

Hope you're ready for your routine to get a little rattled! I'm impressed with all the stuff you're teaching and the hands on stuff. You weren't much for science projects as I remember. I especially like the baking project. We'll all really enjoy that one!!
