King Arthur & Freak the Mighty
The legends of King Arthur, the knights of the round table, the Lady of the Lake, and Camelot is a key element to Freak's story. Last week, we learned that Kevin loves Camelot because he wears leg and arm braces--which he see as his own brand of knightly armor. As we get farther into the story, the students will also study Arthurian legend and begin making connections between these texts from two very different eras.
At-Home Learning Discussion:
Take some time this week to talk and learn about the Legend of King Arthur. Share your own knowledge with your student, look it up on YouTube together, or, if you are feeling REALLY brave, pull the old cult flick Monty Python and the Holy Grail out for a viewing! (For musical theatre fans, this was made into one of my favorite musicals, Spamalot!).
