A week in the life of homeschoolers - Week 31 & FreeBEE Friday Link Up

Week 31: 
What a busy Seussy week we had. Read more about it here (there are also links to FreeBEEs, our March YouTube channel and Pinterest board). I have a lot of photos from our week there too so I am not sharing pictures from our entire week here. We started the week with The Lorax. The we moved onto Green Eggs and Ham. For each book we are doing lots of crafts and eating fun foods. And we are  creating a Dr Seuss binder book. We have also been participating in a lot of Dr Seuss activities taking place here in GA. The kids and I are having a blast.

Tonight we got to go see a 3D pre-screening of the new movie "The Lorax". It was AMAZING. Now I am not always a big fan of 3D movies but this is definitely one you should make sure you experience in 3D. We all loved it and I am sure we will be seeing it again in the theater. Gwyn even cried some tears of joy at the end of the movie (she gets super emotional during movies). Gwyn said her favorite part was the ending where the town starts singing. And her favorite characters are Audrey and The Lorax. Rowyns favorite part was when they plant the Lorax seed. And his favorite character was The Lorax. My favorite part would have to be the ending as well where they drive home a very valuable lesson about how one person can make a difference. And my favorite characters were Grandma and the Humming Fish. The movie kept the kids attention the entire time they even enjoyed watching the credits. The actors that did the voices were a perfect fit. I mean who doesn't love Betty White and Danny DeVito. Obviously they had to change a few things to make it into an 86 min. movie but I feel they did the book justice. I think Dr. Seuss would be very proud of this movie. It has a PG rating but honestly I have not clue why?? I didn't hear or see anything negative. I liked the lessons it teaches about saving the planet and greed. And there were a couple of educational aspects too. I'm Not gonna bother telling you the story line because if you read the book then you already know. Now get your tickets and go see it tomorrow or this weekend. You won't be disappointed.

So here are our photos from our field trip yesterday with daddy, our green eggs and ham fun, Dr. Seuss event at the library and our trip to the movies.

We loved the My First Devotional very much... it's a great resource which I know your two will enjoy.

All of your Dr. Seuss activities really make me wish I had done "more". :-(

I miss Michael's :( Good to know about the Lorax, we did Happy Feet 2 in 3D and I wasn't all that maybe we'll give this a try (I just wish it didn't cost so much extra!). Thanks for linking up to FTF!

Can't wait for the Lorax to make it over here in jolly ole England:) I took the kids to see an older version of it at a ranger program at a state park year and years ago and enjoyed it. They will have a much better understanding of it now. Thanks for linking up to the Home school filed trip hop
