Homeschooling and Life: March 2015

We are still plugging away at the books - between birthday parties and doctor appointments and other life happenings. Also, we did take off a week during the month of March for spring break and went to visit family. It was really nice. Here's a look at what we've been doing in school:

I am using this with Baby Girl in combination with Sonlight P3/4.

We used these worksheets to go with our Harry Potter Unit Study. I got them from this site.

Bug is working on a report about animals.

We learned about haikus.

Baby Girl has found a new hiding spot.
