School is just going great! There are at least 500 people in my class. Why?
Because I am home schooled
I get to go to Disneyland like 2 or 3 times
a week. We learn about the prices at Disneyland and compare them to the
prices that we find at Wal-Mart. We learn cause and effect by seeing how
long it takes to dry off after we go on the Grizzly Bear Run. We also do
math by seeing how many people there is in front of us and how many seats
there is in a car and we try to figure out how many more cars until it will be
our turn. Well it helps because we get to go through the fast pass line. It is
another line but takes a shorter time to go through. For art we go to
California Adventure and we go to Animation Academy and learn how to
draw a character. So far we drew Goofy, Minnie, and Daisy. When we get
home we draw frames for our newly created masterpieces and then we
hang them on the curtain in our house. Also in Disney Land we did science
by going to Inoventions. It is one of the attractions, it was created by Tom
Orrow. It stands for inventions and inovation. They just put it together as
one word. There is lots of science stuff like see how much BMI you have
by just answering like 15 questions. There is also a mat that you can play
hockey on and to stop the puck from where it is heading you just put your
foot in front of it. It is so cool! If you are more curious about my home
schooling you can e-mail me at rydelspy@hotmail.com and I will e-mail you
back a.s.a.p.

We have also gone stargazing at San Manteo and to a presentation about
our galaxy and other galaxies that scientists have found. Did you know that
Pluto is no longer considered a planet? The reason being, scientists….

We have also been to a kite fair at Dayna Point beach. It was a French
meet-up group but we mostly spoke in English. Since we didn't bring a kite
we got to fly other people's kites and there was this one guy who had a little
toy that caught the wind up the kite string then used its weight to bring it
down once it reached the top.

For school we do a total of 565 minutes (9 hours and 42 minutes) of
school work in a week. That means 1 hour and 35 minutes of school work
a day! Except when we go to Disney Land we spend more than an hour
and a half, more like 3- 10 hours. I also taught myself a little bit of Greek
Mythology and things about the Constellations.
