Hi guys! It has been great hearing from so many of you. It sounds like you are all really enjoying your summer!

Many of you have asked about our Romeo and Juliet clips. I’m hoping to have a couple of them ready by the end of the summer. If not, I’d love some help editing them this fall!

Keep leaving notes! It makes me so, so happy to hear from you! xo

How much do you love Romeo and Juliet so far?  Now that you are getting to know some of the heartbreaking details of the play, this week we will spend some time dissecting some of its famous lines.   I bet you can already translate some of them. For example, what do you think a rose by any other name would smell as sweet means?

Here are some fun links to keep you busy until tomorrow…

  • What are your “home” rules for being at home when your parents are gone.  Do you know your addresses in case an emergency occurs while you are there alone?

  • List things you can do on rainy days in the house.

  • Would the story be different if the Cat in the Hat told it?  Write it from his perspective.

  • Design a machine that would clean up your room.  Draw a picture of it and then write about how it would help you.
