A tiny peek at week 4:
We made some fall art and talked about the Fruit of the Spirit.
We also listened to one of our favorite "Go Fish" songs about
the Fruit of the Spirit:
I love this song.
And the dance moves, too!
G r o o v y !
And, we like to get groovy!
In Social Studies, we learned about the pilgrims from England.
They sailed to Amsterdam, Holland so they could worship God freely.
When they arrived in Holland,
they stood on a big hill that looked down over the city.
They could see rooftops, chimneys with storks, windmills and a dike.
We learned that Holland is a very low country,
and the dike protected it from being washed away.
The Fantastic Okapi drew this doodle.
It's a picture of the lesson.
(He's never complained about the social studies
textbooks, but the stories are long and not very exciting.
I sometimes wonder how much he's remembering,
so I decided to have him draw the lessons out.
It's definitely made social studies come to life a little more)
I was excited to find this book at the library!
A friend of mine told me about Hobby Lobby's little history figurines,
so we stopped by to pick up the Jamestown settlers and Powhatan Indians.
Who knew Social Studies could be so much fun!?
Math is pretty independent.
The Fantastic Okapi is busy coloring an addition riddle.
After a morning of school,
we usually sneak outside for some fort building!
And the Green Owl's been hangin' around too!
He's been curious about addition lately, which makes me happy.
Well, Week 4 is a wrap!
Check back next week to take a peek at Week 5!
