Popstar finished up Chapter 11 of The Boxcar Children for Beyond Five in a Row for school awhile back. Yes, I admit I am a little behind!
Chapter 11 is called “The Doctor Takes a Hand” and in this chapter, Jessie makes Benny a homemade stocking bear out of some old socks. Also, Violet gets very sick and runs a fever. Dr. Moore takes her to his home to take care of her and contacts the children’s grandfather finally.
We spent 2 school days on Chapter 11.
Day One: Popstar began by reading the chapter and answering the Writing/Discussion Question in her notebook. Then we went over the Science lesson on Fevers and how it all works. We looked up online about what fevers are and what happens to our body, etc.
After that, we moved onto the Human Relations lesson on Grandparents. We talked about her grandmother (Meme) and how special her relationship is with her. When we finished the lesson, Popstar wrote a note to Meme and mailed it to surprise her!
Day Two: We started with the Bible lessons, which were mainly focused on showing love to people. After that we did the Fine Arts lesson on Sewing, since Jessie sewed a sock bear for Benny in this chapter. I got out some felt and thread and gave Popstar a short lesson on sewing. She made a small heart shaped pillow. I think it turned out pretty cute!
So that was all we did for Chapter 11. Moving onto Chapter 12 next!
