One thing that would be fun to do on break week is to make some ink like the Monks did in the Middle Ages. They used whole walnuts, berries and other things found in nature. There are lots of YouTube videos and recipes on the Internet, but here is a link to a simple version HERE This link has some nice photos as well. Try it and see what happens!

So to earn your bonus card make some ink and practice your Roman hand. You will need to use a dip pen or you can make your own by finding a stick the diameter of a pencil and sharpening it with a knife. Make a chisel point! Please be careful and have a parent help you if you are unsure! Bring your practice sheet to class.
Another way would be to answer the questions from the last post on the Roman hand on the back of your practice sheet that you worked on at home during break week. You can do the walnut ink at any time this year but the questions and Roman hand practice must be brought to class the week we are back to earn your bonus cards.
