The Fun School, Week 10

Maeve is fast at adding and subtracting! She can add double digits (she doesn't know how to carry yet) too. She finished her subtraction dollar section workbook so we'll go back to Singapore. I am very proud of her.

We talked and read about germs, noses, and eyes last week. We're reading from the Usborne Book of Knowledge. The kids haven't been doing the worksheets that go along with what we cover, but I'm happy they are at least listening and engaged.

Most of our learning lately has been happening in bits and pieces throughout the day. The kids got a physics lesson the other day about motion and the importance of seat belts. We researched and set up a habitat for Prairie lizards. We talked about our neighborhood, landmarks, and our address. We read from Little House in the Big Woods. We hiked and collected seeds. We planted tulips and daffodils. We worked in the garden. The weather has been great lately so I haven't been pushing the organized learning too much. I know that this season will soon pass and the kids will be stuck inside.
