Homespun Homeschool Week #37

Week 37 of Homeschool (our last week of school!): We made a mini-puppet theatre with strings and tension, wrote our own newspaper, read in our Spirit Flyer book, made a working planetarium, worked on resolution in our writing, received awards for t-ball, went to the Inspire Curriculum Showcase, used strings and straws to build turtles, then raced them, learned about the first Roman Prince and the beginnings of Christianity, made an accordion book reflecting on the school year, and went to the Folsom zoo where we saw, tigers, peacocks, eagles and raccoons!

Homespun Homeschool Week #36

Week 36 of Homeschool: We went to Lake Tahoe and played in the snow, read in Treasure Island, went to the Reno Discovery Museum and flexed our brains in Mindbender Mansion, learned more about Julius Caesar, built a circuit shark game with paper and copper tape, went to Donner Memorial State Park and learned about the plight of the Donner Party, built our own modern sculptures, learned new Spanish words, discovered cool facts about Lake Tahoe (like that is has snowed every month of the year there!), learned about Lake Tahoe’s water Cycle, worked on writing words, and finished Spirit Flyer Book #5!
