I am so looking forward to a slow week next week!
I did a horrible job of keeping up with what the girls were learning and doing this week...I did an even poorer job of taking pictures.
But the beauty of interest led learning and our relaxed schedule is that it doesn't matter-
I know that my girls were actively engaged
in learning, creating, thinking, and playing every single day.
But here's the recap to the best of my memory;)
Family Feud and also What's the Word? on the Kindle/iPod
Adam of the Road, by Elizabeth Janet Gray
Lots of time on wii fit
Lots of biographies- Queen Elizabeth, Magellan, Jane Goodall, and Ronald Reagan
Eagles- We saw two eagles at our house this week! We could hardly believe it.
American Tall Tales and Legends
Civil War History
Sign Language, Theater, Choir, and Science classes with our homeschool group
Art, lettering, drawing
Natural Health- the girls have been helping me learn more about natural remedies (We'll be adding a Natural Health page next week, so check it out!)
American Girl crafts
Business math (cupcake business and egg business:)
Discovery Toys Think It Through tiles...math, problem
solving, and analogies
Klutz Book of Wacky Inventions
2. The girls babysit every Tuesday and Thursday for a few hours. They don't get paid for the job, because I want it to be a learning experience for them...a part of our philosophy of life learning. They look forward to playing with the one and two year old siblings every week, and I look forward to sneaking in a little baby love now and then. Oh, I miss having a baby!
3. A.'s been taking sign language with our homeschool group. She comes home and teaches M. everything she's learned:)
4. M. found this very cool wordless book about a brave girl doing her part to help a slave to freedom. Beautiful!
5. The birthday girl got a doll craft kit for her American Girl dolls. She's been busy creating all kinds of things for the dolls.
6.-7. A belated little party with friends for M.'s eleventh birthday...complete with cake, chickens, and her new bow set!
8.-9. We used to use these Think It Through Tiles all the time. We were on the road some this week so we brought them along as a fun way to work on some hands-on problem solving.
How was your week?
