We didn’t do that much with Science this week other than learn about Quarks! I didn’t have any picture books to read on the topic, but the girls really enjoyed this coloring book. It is also available to “color” online if you’d rather not print it out.
We also talked about Quarters!
The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts all on a summer’s day;
The Knave of Hearts he stole the tarts and took them clean away.
The King of Hearts called for the tarts and beat the Knave full sore
The Knave of Hearts brought back the tarts and vowed he’d steal no more.
(aka Our Lady of Altagracia, since I didn’t have a chance to paint another…)

I went a bit overboard checking out books about quilts from the library (in addition to the ones already on our shelves!) and we are still enjoying them! Our favorites (so far) have been The Quiltmaker’s Gift, The Quiltmaker’s Journey, and The Promise Quilt. In fact, they proved to be very inspiring towards filling those 40 bags of stuff for the poor!!

(This picture was taken before the girls added a cotton ball to the center… Looks like I forgot to take a final picture. You can see one at No Time for Flashcards.)
After nearly quitting “Q” week, we ended finding lots to do and enjoyed every minute! Nevertheless, I was Ready to move on to “R”, and Roses, Rainbows and Red Raspberry Tea Sandwiches!
P.S. I’m not sure why when I publish this post, it is the only one that appears on my homepage? I had this same problem after my last Alphabet Path post…
