"It's Been A Real Slice."

We are studying myths and legends in my Literature class.  We pay special attention to the Greeks during this unit and talk about Perseus and Medusa, Demeter and Persephone, and of course, Ulysses.  And I say all that to say this:  Hercules (the Disney movie) is really funny!  It had been years since I had seen it and  it just cracks me up.  It's a great movie to discuss the gods and goddesses with and a pretty great way to end the last couple days before break too.  I'm surprised with all the connections that the kids are already making.  It should make The Odyssey even more interesting to them when we get back.  Just wanted to share how much I love the old Disney movies--this one in particular.


  1. You'll have to tell me how the Percy Jackson movie is. If the kids are enjoying all that stuff, I know they'll love the books. I did.

  2. It doesn't look like the movie is going to be out in time for us to watch it, but I think we are going to read the first book instead.


Comments make my day! Leave me one here...
