Here are some of the non-STEM things we did in April... ELA, History, and the arts:
- Mikro is writing poetry. He's still working on his novel, and he now wants to write a play (inspired completely by the wonderful homeschooler written, directed, produced and acted play "Expresso", a Firebird Theater production, in which some of Mikro's friends and classmates were involved. These teens are amazing, and I love that they not only inspired my son to want to do great things, but support and encourage him to believe he can! Thanks, kids. You rock!
- This semester of his Comparative Religions class is all about religious art, and they have been going to museums. In April, they visited the National Museum of the American Indian.
- He's also doing some history work online through Time4Learning.
- We saw a wonderful production of The Cat Who Went to Heaven at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. (No photos allowed, sorry.)
- We went to the Car Show at the Javits Convention Center.
- We took some walks in NYC, looking for fun architectural detail, and exploring Mom's latest obsession, reflections in skyscraper windows...
- Mikro continued participating in Crafty Kids at our wonderful Croton Free Library.
- Mikro learned how to do the drawing version of Exquisite Corpse, and is constantly begging me to play it with him.
