Homespun Homeschool Week #31

Week 31 of Homeschool: We built an air-pressure chamber and learned about the weight of air, made domino sugar cookies and played (delicious) math games with them, studied John chapter 1 inductively, played baseball, built pixelated Super Mario icons from scratch, read all about Citrus Heights then visited our city’s landmarks, worked on division and multiplication, started a new Cooper Kids book, baked more cookies for the church bake sale to raise money to build homes in Mexico, and went to SeaQuest in Folsom where we fed Iguanas, bunnies and parakeets, and pet tortoises and stingrays!

Homespun Homeschool Week #3

Week 3 of Homeschool: We read about the Boston Tea party, looked at 4 types of verbs, built an airbrush and used it to decorate cards for our local retirement home, looked at the quarters for all 50 states (thanks Granny!), learned what a past participle is, gave a presentation on the radio we built, skip-counted 5s and 6s, wrote a paper about Goodman John Howland, built an air-hockey set and played, learned Latin pronouns, diagrammed sentences, memorized John 3:3, practiced spelling, learned 5 more U.S. States and capitals, performed an experiment to examine the characteristics of our fingerprints, and built an electronically-controlled fishing rod!
