So here is our week in the life of homeschoolers update week 6!
Sunday: Yup homeschool AGAIN on the weekend! We attended the Jewish Nibble and Nosh festival in Marietta. The educational part of the trip was the tour of a Synagogue. Not only was it the kids first time in one but mine too!
|The kids got to pet some ducklings, chickens and bunnies.|
|They also got to play on a giant bouncy slide!|
|And they tried some falafel!|
Tuesday: We did some workboxes and Rowyn had his speech class (which is going very well). Here is what was in their workboxes:
Gwyn: Handwriting (letter B), Spelling (B words that also had -et- and -at- in them), Math (numbers/counting), Reading (ABC Bunny), Craft (Bumble Bee).
Rowyn: Handwriting (letter B)), Puzzle (patterns w/ pattern blocks), Math (counting/shapes), Reading (ABC Bunny), Craft (Bumble Bee).
Wednesday: We had a field trip to the Atlanta Zoo! We also had the privileged of going with two other homeschool families (who got us in for FREE with their memberships). There have been several babies born at the Zoo in the last year so it was a lot of fun getting a glimpse of all of the baby animals. Gwyn is also enrolled in a semester of homeschool classes at the Zoo which will be held once a month from now until December.

Friday: In the morning we attended our local library book sale were we scored some awesome deals. We spent a total or $12.50 and got over 30 books. After the book sale we went to the park pond to check on the ducks and geese and give them some food. Afterwards we did some worksheets and started our Toad unit study.
