It was a pretty low-key week. Just school and work. I did get some cooking done this week for a few yummy dinners.
Never made lamb chops before. They were not bad.
So we worked on schoolwork, watched movies and the girls played basketball with Joe a couple times. I have been having horrible upper back troubles, so shooting baskets was tough.
In our school work this week......
Miss Caty has been learning about chickens this week to go along with her 4H Cloverbuds group project. This week she watched a few videos, including Magic School Bus Cracks a Yolk. We also watched a video of chickens hatching and this video from Australia about the difference in eggs and a look at a chicken farm there.
In poetry class she learned about haikus and this is the poem she came up with. Goes with chickens and poetry....lol
We read a book about the chicken life cycle and how we get eggs....
She is working hard on her Pinewood Derby car. (and yes, we are doing all this from our hotel room!!)
The Frozen Wonder is still a work in progress....she is working on more details she says. I guess we'll wait and see.
Joey has been working on his 4H Electricity book. He is working on the Magic of Electricity 1. This week it was more circuit work. We learned more about batteries this week. This is one video he watched.
We bought this Electricity Discovery Kit from Amazon to do his experiments with. I highly recommend this, because we tried to get the pieces by ordering them and it was a pain. Everything we needed has been in this kit.
This week he looked at a flashlight and how the parts work together.
He has one more week of circuit work. Next week he starts on magnets.
He is doing really well with recognizing coins and adding them, mostly in his head. He still is struggling with subtractions, so instead of him getting frustrated he is using a calculator. I think when we get home, we will use our play money to do some practice exercises. This is a huge thing for Joey. He has struggled with adding and counting money for a while.
She also had a full week of 4H projects. In her Snack Attack she looked at dairy. She is checking the nutrition label on our milk.
I did get the kids on April Fools Day. Joe tied their shoe laces together. I changed out their snacks and made them "fake scrambled eggs" for breakfast. I have one more trick to play on them, but didn't finish in time that day. So going to pull it on them still, just a few days late. I love food pranks on them.
I hope everyone had a nice week.
