As I stated, these ideal days do not happen as frequently as I would like with playgroup and co-op taking up 2 of our 5 days. And then, there are the scheduled and unscheduled appointments that creep into our days. All I can say is, I am learning to be more flexible and just go with the flow. I am hoping things will get a bit more ordered as the children grow, especially when I don't have a baby anymore.
This week we have been continuing our unit on Dinosaurs.
After breakfast the children can play while I get lesson ready.
But the older girls have some chores to finish first.
And hair that needs tended to.
There is always laundry to do.
...while mommy finishes up a worksheet she forgot about.
And they are off to Mrs. Bearly's school on the school bus.
(They travel to school by bus or train or boat)
We begin our time with prayer.
And the pledge to the flag and the Bible.
Then we sing the B-I-B-L-E song. On the 2 and 3 verses they walk around the table.
Unless we are injured of course.
Time for our "This is the Day the Lord Has Made" song
Then one of the girls points to the calendar as we find out the day.
And Harold amuses himself (sometimes)
Finding out the weather
Working on our Words to Remember
Pretending to be dinosaurs while we say our poem.
Working on their Shape Dinosaur Mazes
I was reading to them from What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs? while they finished up their mazes.
Time for a dinosaur dig.
Of course, I had some last minute getting ready to do.
And of course, they made a mess while I did.
Time for a memory match game with a twist.
Amelia had some papers to finish cutting out for her Letters, Numbers and Shapes Lapbook.
So, I let the other girls get on the WiiFit for a few minutes (this is not normal for before lunch).
What my table looks like after lesson time/before lunch time.
This is normal. The children watch a show while I make lunch.
Exploring during lunch time.
Naptime for Hannah
The older girls are working on their new Shapes lapbook.
And that is the end of our official homeschool day.
