Today Boy and I negotiated over Math and English. Rather than do a set curricula unit of English, Boy agreed to do a movie review and write the blog himself (we are moving into setting up a simple website for technology). Below is his own review and entry into blog editor.
The Mummy Returns
by Boy age 11
''The Mummy Returns'' is about five people who set out on a adventure and came across a weird book that brings the dead back to life. Two of the people can read the Egyptian writing and the other three just help them kill the Mummy that they bring back to life.
The two people who can read the writing are a boy aged eight and his mum. His parents are archaeologists and his mum has specialised in Egyptian history.
The movie is a great movie to watch because it has history in it and other great things; the scarab beetles, mummies and golden artifacts.
It is M rated because of violence. I give it a rating of two and a half stars out of five.
