Recent highlights from our homeschool:
* We read an illustrated version of Robert Frost’s Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, and painted snowy trees afterward. This was the kids’ first introduction to spattering paint on purpose. 😀
* After reading several books featuring knights, the kids designed their own coats-of-arms and put them on posterboard shields. Sir I. was the Blue Cross Green Tiger Knight and Miss M. was the Snowstorm Knight.
* We’ve been studying England and today we had an English tea party. The kids were ridiculously excited to receive their invitations to have tea with the Queen. They made crowns and thrones, while I worked on cucumber sandwiches and scones. It was a lovely spread.
* Sir I. and Miss M. have been digging trails in the yard. Today we got more snow, and D. and the older kids made a snowman (or was it a snow dinosaur? I received conflicting reports).
It is so much fun to see their eyes light up when something catches their interest.
