Joey is working on a 4H project here. He needed to make fruit kabobs. Well of course he wouldn't eat them, but Lydia and I thought they were great! Caty loved the watermelon, even though it wasn't as great as "in season".
Joey kept working on his Unit study about Knights and Castles from Journey though Learning. These were some of the books he read this week. And he caught me off guard...I again thought he was just skimming. But he came out quoting some fact about knights, and I asked if it was in his lapbook? He replies, Nope, it was in the Ms. Frizzle book. Go figure, he was reading!!
We also watched some videos on Ancient Egypt. Someone put a lot of work into this blog and sharing all this info!! I cannot thank them enough for all of it. We are enjoying watching these clips.
We built on a smaller base, but still only got to 12 inches...Caty put the flag on just before I snapped the pics....and then it fell.
Right now Lydia is using Touch Point Math - Grade 2. She finished her first module and almost done with her second. (Watch for the upcoming review). These flashcards are great because she is working on fact families. The smile I got when the bulb went off, like I finally got it! 9 + 1 is 10 and 10 - 1 is 9...it was funny!
homemade model magic today. It was fun and cheap. Total cost for a HUGE batch was roughly $3.00.
This much would've probably cost us about $15.00 in the store to buy it. She is using it for her Book Festival project.
balloon rockets. The girls had fun with this one too.
Brayden finished his History booklet this week, right now schedule. He is still seeking bare minimum, so I am forcing in any learning I can. Joey is also reading about Daniel Boone right now for Adventure club. I have learned so much about Daniel Boone in the last few days. I never...ever. knew this much in school. Really frustrated about all the misinformation I was always told! Today we watched a cartoon on Daniel Boone I got from Netflix...and surprisingly it was not full of lies. Even Lydia came out in the living room and watched it too.
Lydia and Joey both had their first 4H meeting of the year this week. Lydia loves Cloverbuds. Joey was a bit bored that night because it was elections, and a lot of speeches to listen too. But he made it through as I kept explaining him that these kids worked on those speeches and they want everyone to know what kind of job they will do.
We had a roller coaster week like always, it's a good thing we all like to ride roller coasters. Now it's on to our typical cleaning weekend, to make up for the lack of organization during the week.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend...
