OK. I have to start doing these again. I was reading back through last year’s blog posts and these are my absolute favorite things to read. What a treasure to have a record of each week! There was so much that I had forgotten and it has only been a year.
My sweeties. Ages three, five and six.
Bop was on Ambleside Online week 11 this week, and we finished up The House at Pooh Corner. This has to be my kids’ all time favorite book to listen to, along with Winnie the Pooh. They all pretended to cry when it was over. It is also my favorite book to read aloud, so we will be doing it again soon!
For science we worked on a lapbook from In the Hands of a Child on the water cycle. I have a lot of resources for learning about weather, and I thought this would be a good one to kick us off. It was a little slow going at first but we all enjoyed it. We watched The Magic School Bus Water Cycle on Wednesday and that was fun, of course.
Watching the Magic School Bus and eating clouds. (Or marshmallows for the uninformed. )
It takes a lot of concentration.
Mountains of Food
The kids also helped me organize the cupboards. After they made a castle with the food, they climbed to the top of the cupboards, and later onto the fridge. They were disappointed when I started putting the food back in.
We also had to celebrate the first true snowstorm of the season a couple of weeks ago.
It was really wet but they had fun…
We had a Merlin visit us.
Of course, we had to take pictures, look him up in a field guide, and read all about him.
