Homeschool Discoveries

Sharing a few things I've discovered along the way…

Collage Saturday: Expert Day and a Short Week April 14, 2012

Wow.  This week has really been a blur.  My birthday this past Monday already seems like a long time ago!  Since Tony took the day off work, other than a few minutes spent working on Miss M’s expert day project, it was a day for fun!

Then I went to our state’s homeschooling convention yesterday and today.  That will have to be another post in and of itself to describe my adventures there. 🙂

That only left full days on Tuesday and Wednesday plus Thursday morning for regular school work…and getting ready for Expert Day (Thursday afternoon at co-op) took all of that time.  No other school work got done this week, but I’m okay with that.  We had plenty of learning, and it was kind of nice to have a week  that was a change of pace.  Here’s a few highlights of our week:

1. Playing Triominoes on my birthday. I love playing games as a family.

2. Getting ready for Expert Day (read about our Horse Unit Study in this post).

3. There’s always time to read, even in a busy week.  After taking a break from Boxcar Children books for a few weeks, I think Miss M read about five of them this week!

4. Miss M wanted to find a few horse drawings she had made over the past few months, so that meant cleaning out the “done” art work bin.  This is was a much over due project!

5.  With just a little help from mom and dad, Miss M created a Popsicle stick feeding trough for her horse display.  It felt like the essence of a school project to create a model out of Popsicle sticks!

6. The boys kept busy with some artwork.  They told me that this was a paper plane.

7. and 8. Mr. E created a story loosely revolving around Angry Birds Space.  After writing some of it out himself (asking me how to spell words), I ended up typing it up for him to decorate with pictures of the Angry Birds.

9. First bubbles of the spring.  I finally remembered to buy the kids a new jug of bubble stuff.
