Homeschool Fun: Robots

Jayne's robot
Another great week has come and gone. This week we used the preschool pack from Homeschool Creations. The weeks are starting to feel pretty similar at this point, so my post will be short. Jayne is enjoying his worksheets and is getting better at them with every passing week. This week we did a little fraction work and he seems to be picking up on it well. I filled his sensory bin with legos this week. I put in the tweezers for picking them up and the magnifying glass to look at them in a different way. He made a robot with foamie stickers for art time and moved on to his collage bin when he was done. He even finished off one of his glue sticks. He really enjoys the freedom of being able to create any time. He has a small bin of goodies that he can use any time he is doing art. It has scraps of paper, stickers I no longer need for scrapbooking, die cuts, glue and  scissors. All he has to do is ask and I leave him alone to create. He loves it and really appreciates that I stay out of his hair instead of looking over his shoulder all the time. Let me tell you though, he earned that trust over the past year by having never used his glue of scissors in a way that he shouldn't.

We got another Thomas the Train magazine in the mail yesterday so we are bumping the dino lessons for a while to do another train week. We also spent some time this morning updating his discovery cards. I found these cards in a thrift shop and they are such a nice addition to the wall space in our classroom. They are Pooh Bear nature discovery flash cards. They have info on the back about the topic on the front.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
