These girls are growing by leaps and bounds!
Weekly Homeschool Update
The girls got a wild hair and starting creating these little books from my leftover paper stash.
They wrote fun facts and illustrated them in the cutest little them books!
They got their Draw Write Now, Book 1: On the Farm-Kids and Critters-Storybook Characters and copied the facts and drawings on cows and turkeys.
They made little St. Patrick’s Day books all on their own with info about leprechauns and rainbows.
I finally printed math journals.
Here are January’s shapes snowflake and February’s Valentine cookies. We also did gold coins for March’s leprechaun. The ideas are from Jazzy Journals.
The girls are slowly working through Artistic Pursuits Grades K-3 Book 1 An Introduction to Visual Arts.
This week, we drew a picture from a photograph.
I pulled out some old photos and we looked at them and Tori chose one of me at age 4.
Katie chose an adorable pic of her sister, Elizabeth, as a baby in an Easter bonnet. My main focus for Tori is confidence in her drawing. She is such a perfectionist that she gets paralyzed.
I have really enjoyed seeing the girls learn this month.
They have grown leaps and bounds and can read and write so well – all of a sudden!
We read about Alexander the Great and the beginnings of Rome in history.
We’re almost finished with our astronomy study in science. We read about the outer planets. We’ll do the Earth and Moon this week.
