I see other blogging homeschooling moms writing recaps of their weeks, and I like reading them. I thought I'd join in.
Here are some highlights from our homeschooling week:
Story of InventionsI never expected to include this book on a list of highlights. I confess I'm not fond of this Ambleside Online book selection. When I read it with my daughter a few years ago, it was hard going for both of us. Once she and I stopped trying to figure out how all the machines were supposed to work and focused on the story of perseverance of the inventors, we managed much better. This time around with my son, I'm amazed he understand the machines. Today he grabbed a cardboard box and pencil while I read to him, and he filled the sides of the box with all sorts of diagrams from our reading. His illustrations wound around the container and he turned the box this way and that as he explained his drawings to me. "Who ARE you?" I wondered as I watched him. (I'm not sure why he used a cardboard box, but whatever works, kid, use it.)
Baseball GameWe went to see local college baseball team play a game this week. It was really fun to say in the middle of the day "Hey kids, put the books away. We're going to the ballpark." I love homeschooling.
Prepared for Easter CelebrationsBest holiday of the year.
