This has felt like an unnaturally long week. I overslept today, and since the kids had so much other stuff going on I decided that we’d take today off. Here’s a bit of what the kids did this week:
Some day, in the far and distant future, we may finish listening to “Little Women.” This week we found that coloring whilst listening helps the time go a bit faster. I colored a peacock:
We also started reading a biography of Thomas Edison, to go along with our history studies.
After a minor blow-up over math last week, Poppy and I decided she should take a break from her regular curriculum. She is working on a Khan Academy program for now.
This week the kids learned about a couple of moves toward modernization in American history. Namely, they talked about the transcontinental railroad and Thomas Edison’s progress on electricity. Their textbook didn’t mention Nikola Tesla, but we talked a bit about him anyway.
Today marks the end of our gingerbread saga, which took up a good bit of our energy again today. The original plan quite literally fell apart, so the kids ended up doing a traditional gingerbread village instead.
How was your week?
