Homer's Heroes

Be Awesome. Be Brave. Be Curious.

Where in the World is Uncle Ricky?

Mrs. Homer’s brother, Rick, travels all over the world for work.

This page follows Uncle Ricky on all of his adventures.

It’s a new year and a new adventure! This year YOU are going to tell ME where uncle Ricky is. As an extension activity, I will tell you the place and you present the map, the famous landmark and a picture of a typical classroom. I cannot wait to see what worlds you discover!

Szekesfehervar, Hungary 10-12

In 2015-2016 school year, we read a book called Out of my Mind by Sharon Draper. It is an excellent book with a wonderful message and main character. I highly recommend this book. Maybe we will do it as a read aloud in Reading this year. Anyways, Uncle Ricky will send back pictures of our traveling Melody while she is on adventures with him. He sent back some from his trip to Ashaabat in September.

After having open heart surgery this summer, and the exciting news that he “gave his heart” to Loan, Uncle Ricky is finally traveling again. He is off to Kosovo and he will be there for a few days. See what information you can find on Kosovo as an extension project. What does their school day look like? Are there any famous landmarks there? Where is it on a map?

Ferizaj, Kosovo 8-24

Meet Loan & Bon!!

This summer Uncle Ricky got engaged!! 🙂 We are so excited.

Loan is in the process of getting her paperwork approved to move here from Vietnam. As soon as everything is approved, she and Bon will move to the United States. My brother will be a husband and a dad! We are very excited and we cannot wait for them to arrive.

If you have any questions you would like to ask, let me know. Maybe we can have a skype session and talk to them?!? 🙂
