Homeschool week 26

We had of course another fun week in our homeschool.

During our weekly library visit Strawberry enjoyed story time with the other toddlers while Raspberry and Blueberry played with the robotics equipment. Strawberry also enjoyed building with legos after story time.

We learned about Pythagoras, The Temple of Diana, Confucius, Belshazzar and Cyrus the Great in History.

The older girls practiced writing descriptive sentences and paragraphs in English while Strawberry continued to work on letter writing and letter sounds.

In chemistry we learned about bases and went to the store but a base hunt, to find items in the store that had bases in them.

The girls had fun at the library with a robotics lesson followed by fun building robots.

Strawberry played in our indoor sand castle for sensory play. She also went digging for the letter A.

Strawberry also practiced matching her upper and lower case letters.

In English we talked about the importance of adjectives in sentence. We also played a fun adjective game.

While the older girls worked on adjectives Strawberry worked on writing her name and her letter craft, A is for Alexa.

Also with our school year ending soon, I started to plan and research for what we will be doing next year.

Homeschool Week 5

We had a great week in our homeschool. We love to add hands on learning where ever we can.

In History we learned about Abraham, Jacob and Esau, and Joseph. For Geography Raspberry and Blueberry made aged maps of Greece. They labeled the map with information we have been learning about. Once labeled they crinkled it up and dropped it in a pot of tea. I pre-cooked the tea and allowed it to cool while the girls made their maps.  They soaked the maps in the tea for 20 minutes. They then removed them and allowed them to dry. To protect them they placed them in a sheet protector before filing it in their history binders. This was such a fun hands on craft for geography.

In science the girls practiced separating compounds.

Strawberry worked a lot in her writing journal this week. This writing journal is amazing, it allows her to practice different pencil directions while also working on her fine motor skills.
