    A Different Kind of History – DITL

    Here’s one way we are teaching the kids some more modern history. 🙂 Yesterday we were at a youth orchestra performance and they played a song that Kermit sings, possibly Rainbow Connection, I honestly didn’t recognize the song (and now don’t remember) but I asked my kids if either of them knew who Kermit the Frog was and neither did. We’ve been watching Family Matters together slowly over the past few weeks and I’m trying to remember other good TV shows from my childhood they should know, apparently Sesame Street should go on the list.

    Vimy Ridge Day

    Today is Vimy Ridge Day. I’ve never been a history buff but am slowly getting better with history and it’s something I want my kids to learn and be interested in. Today we’ll be reading this book and watching this short video and if they are interested we’ll also watch this one.
