I love Jane Austin mostly because I was introduced backwards via movies instead of books first. Maybe it's because I'm a dual citizen by descent or not but all things British have an enormous appeal to me. My mom and dad were married there while my dad was in the Air Force and I've been there a few times thanks to work (picture above). I adore Austenland, a quirky movie about Jane and Mr. Darcy with a modern spin. My youngest, who is proud to be a junior version of myself, enjoys it too. As part of understanding how learning is picked up better when it interests children, I couldn't ignore exploring the British route to teach. As a spur of the moment idea, I decided we would bake scones, have a high noon tea (chocolate milk) and printed off some educational sheets.
I believe they had fun and they even liked the scones!
