|Look at those columns! Something he will learn about in third grade|
Then we went to the Science Museum. What fun! The best part is that teachers get in FREE! Everyone laughs at me because I carry my ID around with everywhere. Well, this is why. Many places either give a discount or allow teachers in for free.
Zack had fun looking at all the different activities. He "played" with everything and learned so much. On the way home, he asked if he had to read for school. I said, "No, I think you did plenty of reading." This was the first time we went to a museum where I did not have to read everything to him. As a matter of fact, I just had to explain some things. It was so refreshing! Summer reading does not always happen in books. Sometimes it just includes the world around you. Zack loved that idea! And I love that he learned so much from it while having fun at the same time!

While in the car on the three hour ride there and back, I got a lot of reading done. I started reading Beyond Leveled Books. Wow! What an eye opener it is!! I have a lot to blog about that next week. If you haven't read it, I would suggest it to anyone.
Until next time!
