Wordful Wednesday - Learning Japanese




So Alayna has been learning about Japan in school. She has brought home her latest skill set. These gems are made of paper, any paper but must be a perfect square to begin. Yes, she figured out that even toilet paper is a perfect square. Someone cue the band "The Vapors" old song. You know the song, the one that once you hear it you are screwed all day because it's stuck to the inside of your cerebral cortex like Mom's pot roast and potatoes all day.
I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so

Have a great day.

I have a feeling that song is going to be stuck in my cerebral cortex all day now. :)

My girls and I miss the schools in Oregon terribly. The schools in West Linn, at least had a very wholistic (sp?) teaching approach that my girls excelled with. I loved how everything they learned was in a unit. Here in CA it's "standards" based and every subject is very seperate......not integrated with the other subjects......all for the sake of test scores. Gotta love it.
