No more Lesson plans to write. No more tests to grade. No longer are my boys my homeschool students. I am changing out of my homeschool hat into my personal hobbies hat. Gardening, fitness, photography, part time employment.
KNO3 is sold as Salt Peter/stump remover, but we had trouble finding it
so we ordered straight KNO3 online.
just heat & stir those two in a skillet until it looks like light creamy peanut butter.
pour into glops on foil. (my boys did 1 big glop, then broke it apart)
(and stand back)
Next time we should add sodium bicarbonate to make it burn a little more slowly
here is a small part of this big mess.
The Fire Breathing (click for how to video) didn't work too well.It was mostly a mess. We used the bunsen burners. Next time we need a NOT windy day and a stick with fire.
but we had a couple good tries.
and this was thee messiest still. the boys covered in cornstarch,
cornstarch all over the back porch. THREE Big Messes in ONE day! how much more fun can there be?
and then there was math and reading. but that's boring blog material.
Here is what Ki wrote about writing in his writing journal:
Writing is LAME and should be illegal because it is LAME. It is mucho boring and LAME so we should not have to learn something that is illegal and LAME. Wait, i have to shoop my whoop....BLAAAAAAHHHHH.....Ok. back to LAME writing i should
go to jail because it is illegal.
I guess I'm in BIG trouble. (so VOTE for my blog)
