Homeschooling Week: Sept. 17-21, 2012

We had another good week. The children were a bit silly at times (fall fever?), but we managed to stay on task-most of the time-and complete our work. Here's a peek into our week:

"Treat of the Week"

Baby Girl's beeswax crayons-they came with her Oak Meadow Preschool package.

Baby Girl drew "green grass" with her crayons. We've been spending more time outside since the weather is cooler, and she LOVES lying down in the grass and picking it & playing with it.

Doodles watches a video about carnivorous plants as part of science.

The tree Doodles chose to watch throughout the year (for seasonal changes, signs of animals, etc.) as part of her nature study.

Doodles uses the dictionary for a language lessons assignment

Two of Bug's vocabulary words from his Further Up and Further In unit study

Bug watches a video about why we have seasons (also part of his Further Up & Further In study)

Bug and I also read online about different tea times (I was much more interested in this than he was....LOL.)

Not exactly homescool-related, except for the fact that I want to let you know:
Homeschooling moms need...and deserve...breaks! Hubby and I had a date night (kiddos stayed with grandparents) & I bought these thing for myself. I am injecting more FUN into my life, and I'm a better wife & mom because of it.
