Homeschool Week #2 complete! Here are a bunch of our highlights ...
Sunshine involved and right up in the mix with everything:
Working hard at our desks:
Learning about the Five Kingdoms of Living Things in Science and coloring in helpful memory tools:
Handwriting (Angel's least favorite):
Digging for buried treasure with a Pyramid Dig Kit:
Making their own colored salt doughs:
This ultimately turned into their Salt Dough 10 Commandments (one for each of their bedrooms). I had high hopes of "carving" the commandments into the dough but well, that just wasn't working out very well. So I wrote them in with a sharpie. (We are working hard on memorizing the 10 Commandments with several fun games and flashcards too):
Spelling tests and math drills on the computer:
Prepping for our CC Presentations ... this week the kids will be presenting about their own personal history:
And some random cuteness as well:
It was a great week! I am still trying to get into a groove but am feeling a little more comfortable with our schedule. I consistently underestimate how long everything will take with a toddler in the mix, but I'm getting there :-) I ordered a couple new educational toys for Sunshine that will hopefully keep her busy for a little while longer so I can work one-on-one with Angel when needed. I am also working one-on-one with Lovebug here and there, but it's not nearly as intense.
Next week will be a little lighter because our cousins are in town, yay! We are trying to soak up as much time with them as possible, so we're going to be short a couple homeschool days next week. I'll see how much I can fit in with an abbreviated schedule! I am just loving the flexibility of homeschool because we'll be able to take trips with our cousins during the day that we totally wouldn't be able to do otherwise. Homeschooling rocks!
