We officially started our new homeschool year this week. Here is a look back.
Ds4 actually restarted his schooling as we began his MFW Kindergarten a few months ago. We picked up with lesson 4, A for Apple. I bought several different varieties of apples and we had a testing and comparing session, followed by making applesauce. Sorry no pics for the first day, ds1 had my camera. :)
Here he is with his completed apple badge. It was his idea to add the green chenille stem and dinosaur stickers for decoration. (Gee, do you think this kid likes SpongeBob? Oh I wish I could wear my pj’s all day!)
This was my favorite part of the week’s lessons…we traced ds’s forearm and hand on a brown paper bag for tree roots and trunk. Then we glued on some green paper on top for leaves and ds finger-painted red apples. Too cute and such fun. This is what I really love about the MFW program…it’s very hands on for both of us, not just lessons he does by himself or worksheets I hand out.
I have both boys work on the same theme for science, history and geography. This week we tackled animal classification, Indians of the Northwest and the oceans, continents and maps.
