Day 17/Nature

Busy school day. I didn't get done teaching until 2:20p.m. Normally I stop everything at 2:00 because it's quiet time, but since Josh, was using the computer to finish a subject I decided to get a few more lessons in as well. I don't think Lance minded one bit considering his lesson was about adding and I used M&M with peanuts to show simple addition.

Josh, watching a math lesson.
 Caleb and Brent, during a Shurley Grammar session.

We listened to this book during lunch and discussed how we can make the world more beautiful.

Today for Latin, Josh, Annette, Caleb, Brent and I studied lesson 3. I haven't had time to study our Latin words during the weekends or evening. The only time I am studying them is during our 30 minute sessions. We will continue with lesson 3 next week as well.

Lance, Ethan and I also did Latin. We are learning how to ask a person their name as well as give ours.

I had Bible time with the four younger children. They copied a verse into their notebooks and Lance drew a picture of the story.

Ethan, did a review lesson from Delightful Reading and has started WinterPromise LA-1. He completed two pages from his phonics workbook. Yesterday he read one paragraph from his Write-In-Reader. With WP LA we are going to start slow and most likely take two weeks to finish one week because he will continue with Delightful Reading.

Lance, completed a lesson from PAL/Writing and a one from PAL/Reading as well as a math lesson.

Caleb and Brent are doing well with their independent studies. I did have a math lesson with Brent today to review some things.

Joshua, continues to get use to Bob Jones Distance Learning. He loves Systematic Math.

Annette, is happy with her studies. I do wish I had more time to sit with her for Bible and history.

The children are enjoying God's creation more via nature lessons from Queen Homeschool's Nature Walk with Aunt Bessie. They now have a nature notebook to draw what they see and yesterday Caleb found a mushroom.
He noticed that it has grown since yesterday, so I encouraged him to take a ruler outside and measure it. Annette, even drew a picture of it {happy dance}. Caleb, put the date he discovered it and how tall it is. I'm going to print pictures for the children to tape in their notebooks.

Well, that's it for today. I got a late start with blogging at 3:30 p.m.

  1. My kids and I love Miss Rumphius. It inspired us to think about the world and what we could do to make it more beautiful.

    I love all your pics from your nature study! It is great that you are doing that with your kids.
