Learning About France
Welcome back to the 5 Days of Homeschool... Blog Hop. In case you haven't heard, this is the week my fellow Homeschool Review Crew Crew Mates and I are taking the time to share different topics related to homeschooling.
Our art project centered on the impressionist style of art. These are the books we read:
And then the children tried their hand at painting in the impressionist style.
For our End of Visit Feast we had a breakfast-for-dinner type meal. We made crepes and a crustless quiche plus had a fruit platter.
I found the recipe for the crepes at Taste of Home: Chocolate-Hazelnut Banana Crepes.
And I found a Trim Healthy Mama friendly recipe for Crustless Quiche over at Mrs. Criddle's Kitchen.
They sort of helped with the quiche, but daddy had to work that night, so I was in a rush and didn't get pictures taken.
As with our stay in other countries, we learned some of the language. During calendar time we said the days of the week and counted in French. We learned some common phrases and the colors.
We watched three movies that are set in France:
Madeline (live action movie)
Beauty and the Beast
We sang the following songs with our WeeSing Around the World CD:
All the Ducklings
