One Week Down

The bottle is full of air!
We have one whole week of kindergarten under our belts now! We have a good routine down already and I think it is working well. Days 1 and 4 were a ton of fun, while days 2 and 3 were a little rougher. I can tell that we are both greatly appreciating our day off and it will be very low key around here today. 2 things really stuck out for little guy this week. He really likes the Boxcar Children, who found the dump and many kitchen items for their home there during our reading yesterday. He also had a blast with our 2 air related science experiments.
Handwriting Without Tears...so far so good.
We spent the week learning about what it was like during the time of the first people. On the last day we made "clay" bowls just like the first people.
After making bowls we turned our focus to what they ate. Here is a bowl of blueberries and a fish for the first people to eat. Little guy says he wants to be one of the first people when he grows up, also an Olympic gymnast.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
