According to my special days calendar, June 19 is Garfield’s (the cat, not the president) birthday! We will be having fun learning with our favorite cat as part of our homeschooling summer school subject of the day.
I’ll be combining math, health, science, and life skills as the kids add up the calories contained in our crock pot lasagna kitchen project, and figure how much Wii Just Dance it will take to burn those calories.
We checked these out from the library for hilarious reading.
I found these links for the kids to follow for computer lab, art, and fun.

And what would a Garfield themed day be without a nap? I’m putting that in our day’s plans, too.
Lasagna and a nap–sound like good elements to work into my day, too 🙂
Absolutely, Bonnie Rose! 🙂
Wish I had a teacher like you, growing up! 🙂
Thanks, that’s sweet!

This turned out to be one of the most fun (and delicious) “summer school” days last year. I checked the links and all are still working.
