A week in the life of homeschoolers - Week 17

We did some homeschool everyday except Thursday and Friday, but I am sure the kids still learned a thing or two even though we weren't actually doing worksheets or unit studies.

Monday: The kids continued to work on their Thanksgiving studies. We went to the playground for a little bit. And then they helped me do some chores and make our Advent calendar to go along with our Truth in the Tinsel Advent e-book.

Phonics Thanksgiving words.
Thanksgiving BINGO!
Handwriting Thanksgiving words.
Unloading and loading the dishwasher.
Helping make the Advent calendar.
Tuesday: We had a very busy day. First we went to Barnes and Nobles for storytime. Then we went on a hike/bike ride with some homeschool friends. Then we headed to the library for lego fun time!
Gwyn was a little distracted at storytime.
Rowyn showing me the ladybug he caught.
My monkey!
Gwyn is so fast now on her bike.
Rowyns sea monster!
Wednesday: I wasn't feeling super motivated because my friend sent me a text message telling me she was in the hospital. But we still managed to get a little bit done. We made read some Thanksgiving books, made thankful trees and made a Turkey trap. The kids also played on ABC Mouse and watched a Thankgiving video.

Gwyn loves ABC Mouse.
Even Rowyn learns something by watching her.

Thursday: Thanksgiving day aka Turkey day! We check the Turkey trap only to find that he got away, but he did leave the kids a couple pieces of candy. The kids didn't have traditional school but they still learned a few things and got to spend time with their Mommom, Poppop and two of their cousins (the rest of the family was in PA).

Mouth full of food!
Friday: We went to visit our friend at the hospital. It was the first time the kids were ever in a hospital so it was a new experience for them. They also made cards for our friend.
