Pioneer Days

Our city has an event called "Pioneer Days" every year. This was our first year attending and the kids loved it.

Sweet Son is learning how to weave.

They enjoyed this so much we later ended up buying a loom for home.

Watching a blacksmith demonstration.

Tomorrow I will show photos of the petting zoo at the same event.

School Work

Here are some examples of school work that we are doing at home. Right now the kids go to a private Kindergarten at a Montessori school in the mornings. In the afternoons, I do school work with them. These are specifically examples from what we are doing at home with Moving Beyond the Page and various science kits.

The writing assignment was to write a paragraph about visiting a fair.

Translated: I want to go round and round. I want to go up and down. I want to go to the ring the bottle. I want to hang on the web.

Translated: I want to go to Ferris wheel. I want to go to zoo. I want to go to pet animals. I want to go to see a cow.

They are watching this experiment closely.

We love our Magic School Bus science kits. Here are just some of the things they made and experimented with in the weather lab. I bought them on sale at Educents if you are interested.
