"You can’t just walk out on the results of your own hankerings"
~Franny & Zooey by JD Salinger
So, it's the last day of November and this post should have been done by Halloween. However, life has happened. Apparently enough life has happened that I just have not been able to convince myself to sit at the computer and catch up on this! I'm so sorry! Here you go anyway!
A few months ago, I signed Sidekick up for Little Passports. It's fantastic and we love it. He has already learned his countries, musical instruments from around the world, and more. Plus, he loves getting mail with his name on it every month. It's hard (for an adult) to wait a month to use these with our schooling but, we both love it.
(Which we do more regularly than my blogging!)
This was a fun one. After we received our new world map and with his Mimi coming for a visit we began talking about our relation to the world. I found this on Pinterest, although I believe it was for the layers of the Earth.
You can always search my Homeschool boards on my Pinterest if you need some ideas!
We started with Sidekick drawing himself on the smallest circle. Then his neighborhood, his city, his (current) state, and then our country. He's getting really good at looking at a shape or picture and drawing his own version. I love it.
We still love our workbooks for lazy homeschool days! They are great for cuddling and still working on his writing and math skills.
Oh soccer. We had such a great soccer season! He made new friends and had a fantastic coach that worked with him and he learned so much! We can not wait to play again in the Spring.
Children's Museum shenanigans. We had a Mommy/Baby date and, obviously, we had a great day.
I used these umbrella and rain drops for something last year, don't ask me what. This year, we used them to work on less than/more than/equal to. This kid and his numbers! He loves math! He's got this down but I still work it in to our schooling days.
Sidekick wanted to make a spaceship. So here it is. His own design, his own creation, his own everything. I was happy to let him create as he wanted while I made dinner.
So there you have it! I have much more to show you and I will this coming week! Promise, promise! Check back soon!
