Today we finished off work on The Fall of the House of Usher and I started reading The Pit and the Pendulum. We finished Y Charts, Acrostic poems and floor plans for the Usher family crypt. We also finished Usher family coat of arms on shields today and have a bit of work to finish tomorrow. The grade 2-3 kids started work on Paddington this week. This afternoon we started some painting for Poe books which should turn out well. As well as reading the Picture of Dorian Gray after this unit I've decided to read another gothic horror tale, Bram Stoker's Jewel of the Seven Stars. I'll read my battered old copy of it over the weekend.
