Projects in this Post
Spane is going into 6th grade this fall, so his California Mission project is long over. When I took pictures of the project, I took them on an ancient “dumb” phone, hoping that some day I would be able to retrieve them. When my computer went to the hospital for a new motherboard, it also came back with better bluetooth, and I was able to finally get the pictures off the phone.
If you are a parent with a child going into 4th grade this fall, and you live in California, this is something you are going to have to deal with. California Missions are part of the California State Common Core 4th grade curriculum. There is no getting out of it. But, for crafty parents, that’s a good thing! You might have so much fun that your child may find himself or herself on the sidelines, wishing to take part in the great project. Don’t do that – it’s a great time to spend time with your child, and learn together. You can even take a trip to your closest mission!
