peacock feather quill

Gracyn had the superb idea to make her loooong peacock feather into a quill for her harry potter writing assignments.  You'll have to click on the pic to make it bigger.  Very clever.

wizard, Gracyn

We got a harry potter game for the wii!!

It has been so much fun...the kids could hardly stop playing it to eat and sleep!

I also ordered some calligraphy pens to use as quills and Gracyn has been using her loooong peacock feather as a quill.  The calligraphy pens make cursive practice fun.  

We finished our comic book pages, but I can't get blogger to post it.  It turned out great.  I kept having to remind the kids that it was a Latin assignment....use some latin words!  haha!  They had fun with it.  We are also still working on our creative writing assignment of making a Monster Book of Monsters.  Gracyn wrote the chapter of the Boggart in the Closet as a play and we will soon be acting that out for you!  Lots going on!  And super fun!
