Last Monday, we had our last day of Homeschool Coop classes for the school year. It is always bitter-sweet, as we are ready for the work and busyness of Mondays to be done for the summer, but we will miss seeing some of our closest friends on a regular basis. Our last meeting consisted of the younger kids sharing the song they had been memorizing all year - the States song.
The older kids (3rd grade - High School) all presented a science presentation. Third grade to Middle School students studied Anatomy and Physiology, while High School studied General Science. Above, Ann-Marie presented her information on the Immune System.
Evan and his best friend, Silas, did a presentation on dental health.
Then, on Friday evening, our Coop presented a play at the Rochester borough building, which has a wonderful little theater inside. The younger kids (preschool - 4th grade) presented "In God's backyard". Alec had some speaking lines and they all had to memorize and sing some songs.
The older students presented a play called Story Stew.
This play was a wonderful mishmash of fairy-tales. Ann-Marie played Little Miss Muffet and Evan played Jack from Jack in the Beanstalk. All of the kids did a wonderful job - they had us enthralled and laughing until the end.
What a wonderful way to end the school year. The Jerome Academy has two more weeks left and then we are out for summer. We can't wait!
