Second Week of December
This week we have slowed down even more in anticipation of Christmas. The pictures are of the wrapping paper we made, our school bookshelf and the wall where I put the pictures I have made for school lessons so that they can look at them. The bookshelf and our kitchen table is essentially our schoolroom. We have a very small house so everything doubles up if needed.
Friday--We enjoyed a playdate at the indoor park, looking for books at the library and my oldest did the Super Scientist program where they learned about water.
Monday--We learned about the letter sounds j, k, and l and made a page for the number 9. We also made wrapping paper to use to wrap grandparent's gifts this year.
Tuesday--We went on a field trip to a bakery that specializes in pies and cookies.
Wednesday--It was time for the Children's museum where Winter Wonderland was the feature. We slid down the slide, met Santa, Mrs. Clause and helped to make Frosty the Snowman. We watched a puppet show called, "the Polar Bear's Journey," which was about the Big Dipper. We also dug for dinos and played with the dams and locks.
It was a fun but chaotic visit to the museum as they had just opened up their new exhibit for older kids called "Children Making a Difference." It features Anne Frank, Ruby (I forget her last name but she was the girl who helped with desegregation) and Ryan White. It even has Ryan White's locker from school with all the nasty graffiti on it. Lots of middle school kids were touring this exhibit which is the age it is trying to reach.
Thursday--We learned more letter sounds and played with the map from the Children's Museum.
I hope everyone else had a great week!
