We began school this week!! Whoop Whoop! It has gone much better than I could have hoped for. Moods were great, work got done and I am afraid of falling into thinking that this is how it could be all the time. Ahhh, one can hope….
1- Katey had to wear a digital clock around her neck each day and randomly asked her to tell me the time. I also told her at what time certain things would be happening, such as lunch, her friends getting home from school, etc. She has done so great, and her time telling and time management skills have greatly improved because of this.
2-Tommy has totally been loving his physics lessons. So far the measuring one has been his favorite. He had to measure a can of soda and see if what they said on the can was true. Then I let him have to soda after. (A real treat in our house.)
4- Tyler and I made his very first Tot Book. We did the Cars one. He was extremely excited about this and often asked me to get it out for him.
5- We made a huge timeline of the history of salt. Yes, salt. This has had an important role throughout our history. It was a fun and engaging lesson for all of us. Watch for the review of this coming soon.
These next pictures are all from Prairie Primer .
1- Emily learned about the history and mechanics of guns. IHEA has a really good Gun Safety Course.
2- Owl Pellet dissection. My husband couldn’t believe I paid for puke. haha. Our favorite resource this week.
3- Corn Cob Doll.
4- A working diagram of a lung.
We have had such a fun week. The little kids and I finished up Blueberries for Sal. Watch for that post coming soon as well as a more in depth look at our first week with Prairie Primer.
