Here's another monthly recap of our homeschooling activities outside of the usual workbooks and reading we do each day.
I plug the boys' new words into SpellingCity.com sometimes and let them play games with them. :) The match game and hang mouse are their favorites.
It was the big election! We talked about voting booths, voting, and election results. The boys had their own mock voting booth and secretly voted on that days' snack. :) Mom lost.
Miles overly enjoyed watching the results come in on election night. He had his red and blue map going the entire evening.
And since he had to go to bed before learning the winner, Miles jumped out of bed the next day ready to finish coloring the map.
The boys spelled words with some rub-on letters. When Miles had "Miles loves" on the paper, I was curious if he was going to say "mom" or "dad".
But I was even more pleased when this was the final result....note exclamation point. ;)
We went to the YMCA for a homeschool field trip day where the boys took cooking, swimming, and gymnastic classes. What a great time!
The boys took tractor rides...in the city...with our awesome neighbor, Jon. Graham eats up any chance to be around motorized vehicles.
The boys helped with a lot of holiday cooking. Here Graham crushed candy canes for peppermint ice cream.
And they helped make homemade rolls for Thanksgiving. Wow, they were a huge help with their rolling out dough, cutting, and rolling!
Miles often helps Graham with his readers. I love those moments!
Who needs a Little Tykes kitchen when you can make one out of cardboard boxes, baskets, crates, and toys?! This was all sparked by a non-working coffee pot Jeff was throwing out. The basket sink is my favorite...complete with a faucet made from Trio blocks. Ha!
The kitchen segued into a restaurant where they requested lunch be served.
The boys made patterns with foam fall stickers. I bet you can guess who did which one.
Miles did a drawing recap of our drive to Wisconsin Dells. Windmills, llamas, a glass ceiling market, pumpkin patches, hay, a bridge, a house on a hill, a broken tree, a playground. Remember, we took the scenic route....not the interstate. ;) That was worth this picture!
Graham drew an adorable road and then put tractor stickers on it. :) Oh, and Daffy Duck.
Homeschool is well on track, and I foresee some kind of summer break this year! Yahoo!!!!
