Day 30 / 101 - Saint Nicholas Day
parts of speech in one paragraph, and my son and I diagrammed a few sentences from the text. Our math consisted of 'money' activities since the most famous story of Saint Nicholas is one where he gives gold to a family in need. We located his country of Myra (modern-day Turkey) on the globe, and did a little research on it. We illustrated pictures of Saint Nicholas. And of course, as the picture shows, we had to attempt to bake an authentic European spice cookie.
