I've decided to try "year 'round" schooling, going 3 weeks on with 1 week off. (A great friend is trying this with her homeschooling schedule and she loves it!) And this week has been a great way to lead up to our "week off"...
We've spent everyday this week learning with other homeschooling friends. Can't you call that "socializing"!?
So I wanted to show you OUR week for YOU to glance at...just to see how much we do enjoy the homeschooling life.
Monday - Christopher Columbus Day 2014 - Holiday/
No School for us because...
It's Daddy's Day off!! Which meant "let's eat Pho (Vietnamese food)"
Spent alittle time at the park and just lots of fun with family.
Tuesday - PEMDAS/Science Club
We studied bones and how they make blood for our body.
We even got the chance to make FAKE blood!
Wednesday - LEGO Club at our house - Transportation Theme
Here's our "Share Chair" session were each Master Builder gets to present their creation. Others listen and then give compliments and ask questions.
Thursday - Learning with Team Chamberlain -
This day will go down in our Homeschooling History books as one of the funnest!
We spent the WHOLE day with these kiddos and their fabulous mommy.
Val and I would trade off teaching, kids would take a "play break", then
come back for another lesson.
Here's Val's Lesson on ordinal numbers using headbands for the kids.
Followed by a fun read-aloud..."There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat"
This was our candy sorting activity...
Kids made a graph using their sorted candy to show "Least and Greatest"
AND THEN THEY ATE IT!!!
Friday (tomorrow) - Field Trip FUN! -
Headed to the Pumpkin Patch for some Fall Fun
So blessed and honored to have the title as Homeschool Mom!
Not only are we learning, we are making memories together.
Happy Learning with your Lil Ones!
