We haven't been very organized in our learning this season, and I generally feel OK with that--but last week was kind of stressing out about the lack of "school" work being done. As I was headed to the shelf for some of our lesson books I stopped to realize what I might be interrupting if I brought out the math. I went for the camera instead. Here's a peak at one morning last week, 8:20 am:
Wylie had disassembled his robotic arm (thanks Mimi!) and was putting it together on his own;
Juniper was counting her piggy bank money;
Kale was making me some tea. Perhaps the math book could wait.
Later in the day: dramatic play outside in the "rocket ship", inspired by "George's Secret Key to the Universe" by Lucy and Stephen Hawking;
Kale reading about rocks and minerals;
The following day: creating a Viking boat. This was part of our "formal" history study, in a unit on the Middle Ages that we're suddenly embracing,
And the beginning of a set of alphabet books of the Middle Ages.
This is why I find blogging and journaling so helpful. Sometimes this quiet work we in our own homes is hard to recognize until we step back from it.
