I am also so grateful for this time with both our kids. While sometimes we could all use more of a break from each other, we are all actually doing better being home together than when they got shuffled off for the day.
Here is our schooling year from when I last posted, through winter break.
Our weather tree. I have a 3rd grader and kindergartener and try to have some overlapping projects that can work for both and be bumped up for Lala. We learned about weather and tracked it daily by adding a noted "leaf" daily to our "tree."
Our early winter nature table. The Christmas items are now packed away again and the nature bits will begin coming back to the table as the kids collect them. We aren't having much of a winter, though, which is a bit worrisome.
Santa brought Wildcraft, a board game about herbs and cooperation (and new jammies). This was new in 2013 for both kids...a love of board games.
Below, Solstice chalkboard. The verse was "borrowed" from a friend in an online homeschool group and she said she combined it from two. I borrowed her drawing, too, although hers was better and had a sledder.
Below, making lip balm and salve for gifts.
And below, a gift making day of crafts with our homeschool charter school.
