Choices, choices, choices

It's that time of year again - time for the kids to choose their classes for Challenge next year. A didn't get to choose last year, as now first grade spends all day with the same teacher. (When M was in 1st, they got to choose classes.)

Anyway, A had to rank his choices. He will get to take 6 different classes next year. His top 6 choices are:

Paleontology - dinosaurs
Magic Measurements - learning about measurements
Space Traveler - solar system
Tour of America
Rockin' Roller Coaster - make your own roller coaster - uses Roller Coaster Tycoon

M's top 6 choices are:

It's Greek to Me - be a Greek god and learn what part of nature you control
Snap, Crackle, Pop - Mad Scientist, includes marble racing
It's Your Move - Chess
Cooking with Chemistry - cooking
Guilty/Not Guilty - conduct a trial of a fairy tale character
Time Warp - Science fiction, space simulation, read The Giver

These are probably the classes they will get, but sometimes they will get a number 7 or 8 choice.

They both enjoyed looking over the choices and considering pros and cons of each class. It's a lot of fun to see them choose classes.
