This past unit I spread out a bit so it ended up being more like 2 weeks.
Deirdre is getting more interested in doing school so I have been forgetting to take pictures. I hope to have more next week. Both boys are now doing the same unit in their respective programs and are doing really well. It is a very complete program so I am having trouble adding in my high schoolers electives. It seems if it isn’t in his manual then he forgets to do it. I see a lot of weekend intensives in his future!
We also did a bit of a later unit using the book One Small Square: Woods because we happened to find some huge mushrooms in our yard and decided to not wait until we got to that lesson as it will probably be harder to find them then. Which is why home schooling is so cool we can learn what we want when it is an interest not at some predetermined time.
Also Princess D is 31 months old and begs to do school so here is a bit of what we did last week. A lot was repeating the same things but she is learning new things each and every time.
Drinking from a big girl cup
Gluing packing peanuts to a form (these are made from cornstarch and melt when wet)
What happens when you take a marker under the table for 5.5 seconds. I never said a word to her but apparently she decided Hitler was not a good guy to pretend to be. I have to fess up here, I was busting a gut!
More cutting practice
Color matching game
Painting with watercolors
