so here goes.
Interest led learning journey in words and pictures-
Inkheart, audio book
The City of Ember (both girls)
Old Town in the Green Groves (read aloud) about the "lost years" that Laura Ingalls Wilder did not include in the Little House series. It's a good book:)
Animal and garden care
Seven Cool Homeschoolers;)
Sewing- purses and doll clothes mostly
A Wrinkle in Time, our current read aloud
Episodes of Fetch
Movies with friends
Lego movie maker- oh my, they found this app for my phone and now make every insignificant event into a fifteen second high action thriller...haha
Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? on the wii
Babysitting- lots of opportunities for this over the last two weeks
Games- Americaopoly, Apples to Apples, Sketchy, Hide and Seek
The Sound of Music- our homeschool group is performing the Sound of Music next year. I have a feeling this is just the first of many, many times we will be watching it!
Anne of Green Gables- love, love this movie...almost as much as the book!
Science experiments- thanks to Phyllis for such fun and easy ideas:)
But most of the last week has been all about
Heritage School- A week long program with our historical society that immerses kiddos in life in the 1860's as they learn about the people and times leading up to and during the Civil War. It's an amazing experience! This week they learned about children from that era, period clothing, sewing, leather work, dancing, parlor games, baking and decorating gingerbread, surveying, agriculture, lawn games, and nature journaling.
