Peek At Our Week 26


    This week just flew by and before I knew it well it was just over! Maybe that means it was a good week! Skyler was setting all her stuff out Monday morning and I just had to take a pic of it since she went to so much trouble. She is really enjoying the All About Animals journal she is using as well as her other stuff. Skyler is a HUGE animal lover so when this journal came out I knew it was for her! 

     She of course has picked mainly animal type things for her studies I have tried to put a bit more in there for her. For the most part she is easy to please as far as reading and she likes the books she is using. Skyler is a slow reader so they take her a while to get through. She takes her time when she reads and she can tell you every small detail about her books characters. She is using Pignapped for her science as well as some science kits I found on ebay.

Our Review Of First Form Greek


     My son Fox was thrilled at the chance to use First Form Greek Complete Set by Memoria Press. This is a wonderful company who has classical christian curriculum. He is completely amazed by ancient history and when offered this as a review item he was delighted!



First Form Greek Complete Set
Grades 7-12


I cannot get over all the wonderful items that are included in this set either. It truly becomes alive with all the great tools included. He was so excited the day he started. He was all smiles which is so strange for a kid who hates school!

Peek At Our week 25

     I love seeing my kids sitting around the table working quietly! It is a rare occurrence after all. This week has been full of projects, new journals, of course and some library volunteer excitement! 



  Since Fox has been reading the space theme Horrible Science book he is also enjoying the science kit along side of it. This week he made an asteroid and we learned how craters are formed on the moon. 




     I think it came out pretty neat with the way the colors all stayed and didn't mix. 




     We dropped it in a box of flour and yes it was messy! But the dips in the flour that it left behind were pretty cool to see.

     My daughter has been amazed by the book Bessie's Pillow for the past few weeks. We were offered this book by Strong Learning, Inc. this month as a review item and it has been wonderful! She has really enjoyed reading this book.

Field Trip!!!!!


     We had an amazing day at the museum for all things geology! There were many games to play and I was pretty pleased she was answering so many of these things correctly! The museum does this every year and every year it is pretty fun! They also added a few new things this year so that was even better.
