Lydia decided on Life in Castles because she wanted to wear a Lady dress. She used FloraBricks to create a castle. Painted it and decorated it. I am proud to say that the majority of this part of her project was done on her own or her sister helped her!!!
We finished our soccer unit from Amanda Bennett. Here's a copy of one of our sheets from the project. I love my binding machine. Makes it nice for the kids to open them like a notebook.
We finished our Earth Day Discussions. We watched lots of information on why to take care of our planet. I found this information at Edhelper.com. There is a book on the start of Earth Day and one on what it means to reduce, reuse and recycle.
We also read these titles:
The kids absolutely loved them. We also watched Magic School Bus on Recycling.....love that Mrs. Frizzle!!!
Then we took what we learned and applied it at our first spring soccer practice. That'll be another post, but here's the boys and their Coach!
Here's the video we watched a lot!!! And it worked. Even though Joey was having an episode, he remembered what he learned. It was great to see them concentrate on ball control.
By the way....the links are for your information. Please do not feel that you need to click on and purchase them. I do get a percentage of the sale (like nothing)...but it was easy to link up the pictures to the blog this week. I am having a lot of trouble uploading to blogger today.
We cleaned out the garage, and the hubby got our bikes all ready. This little trampoline is great in the garage, especially to expel energy during times of rain (oh like this week!!). It's 8 foot in diameter. And the kids are not gymnasts yet, so even with a lower ceiling we are ok. It's also great to calm meltdowns. We were able to clean up enough to get out the basketball set in the corner. It's like one of those ESPN stations, but only basketball. I can send the kids out in the garage on rainy days. We are in the early stages of cleaning the garage out and converting it into a family room. We are tripping over each other...so the room is needed. Joey has requested the foos ball table come out too. So we will be working on that tomorrow.
