MONDAY: Little House on the Prairie Audiobook
The “plan” for homeschool this year is to use Prairie Primer and “read” through LHP. We are hosting a pioneer club, but until this week we had not remembered or gotten around to starting LHP. We are beginning with Big Woods even though Riley had read this 2 years ago. We wanted to start again and get everything fresh in our memories. So far the kids have seemed to really like it. I printed our some coloring pages for them to work on while listening. We even were at the shooting range Saturday and able to learn gun safety!
TUESDAY: Leaf activities and blogging for TOT School posts!
I really want to try to take pics and blog for TOT SCHOOL link-up but just haven’t been able to get with it. I am determined to do some intentional “things” with or planned for Lil” Red. Since it is fall I thought leaves would be a good theme.
I had the bright idea to drop all school work and head out to find leaves and play at the park. We ended up at two different parks since one was rated 5-12 yrs. old and Lil’ Red wasn’t able to physically climb by himself up to the slide. I decided it was too dangerous and we needed to head to another part suitable for tots and big kids.
THURSDAY: CC Childcare with Lil’ Red in tow. He got a little bored and wanted to go home an hour before we could leave! Yikes. Will definitely bring more activities and crafts for next week OR leave him home until I meet up with hubby and kids to head to a mommy blog event!
Princess and Eldest got to send the night at Grandma’s after art class. Lil’ Red got to hang out with mom while dad was in college.
FRIDAY: Pioneer Homeschool Club (Prairie Primer/LHP)
We dissected owl pellets. Made pinecone owls (even the boys really got into making these!) Created the phases of the moon with oreos. Made star gazing tubes with pringles cans!
SATURDAY: Lego Club Library Program
