We're 3 months in and I seriously cannot believe how much I am loving homeschooling!
Sorting and classifying:
Legos! Both girls love them.
I love the learning that happens with them!
LOTS of reading:
Sometimes, we go out for lunch...just for fun. :)
Baths. SO many baths.
We draw in the tub,
play with bubbles,
have "ocean" baths and "glow baths"...
so many baths.
I found this Marble Works set for $2 at a garage sale years ago.
Such a fun find!
Alice discovered she could make rainbows by spraying water in the sun.
We read a book about a little girl who traveled the world to make an apple pie.
So, we traveled around Colorado Springs to get ingredients for ours:
1. That's a $20 gluten free apple pie.
2. The girls learned they do not like apple pie.
3. I learned apple pie makes a delicious breakfast.
Field trip to a pumpkin patch:
In the fall, we tried to be intentional about going to playgrounds.
Such a fun way to challenge Clementine physically.
We learned about the ocean and went to the aquarium in Denver.
Playing with magnets:
MagnaTiles on the "light table" I made.
MagnaTiles=worth every. single. penny.
We read "A Cranberry Thanksgiving" and did lots of fun activities,
including this sensory bin with our buddies:
We've turned many grocery trips into field trips.
Takes forever, but the girls love it!
Art. A large amount of our day is spent doing various art projects.
Clementine likes to help sharpen the colored pencils. :)
On our first "snow day":
Learning at the library:
Another one of our favorite toys:
Loved this picture from a walk around our block:
She made puppets, then a puppet theater.
We watched a YouTube video about Jim Henson.
Puppet shows for days and days!
More sensory tables:
Seriously, so much art.
Picking and eating fresh herbs.
(Aerogarden is awesome.)
Sledding...the best kind of recess, according to Alice.
Alice and I do sit-down, more structured work together, too.
I'll write about that later!
I just love it.
I'm so incredibly thankful this is a possibility for our family.
I'm so thankful for these moments!
