Week 4 English: More Prepositions 

Neat activity- http://lessonplansos.blogspot.com/2011/04/hunting-for-prepositions.htm

Pull out your Easter Eggs and allow children to search for them.  When they find one, they should write a sentence using a preposition to describe where they found the egg. 

Week 4 Latin: Noun Endings, 1st Declension 

I am going to put these all on individual index cards (half them), mix them up, then have the kids put them in order.  They will start to form the chart in their heads (hopefully).
