Avril continue on with her math journey. This week we counted woodland animals and made sure to feed each of them. She also had to match quantities of food with quantities of animals.
As part of our garden theme, Avril played hide the spade. I laid out 20 cabbages and hid 1 spade under a cabbage. She had to choose a number, say it and see if the spade was there.
She also traced over the letter G.
Josef spent some time stamping.
Here he is reading about birds. This week he has had to start observing birds in our environment - just an excuse for him to continue his study in that area :)
Here they are outside listening for bird calls.
In science we are still exploring light and dark. This week we experimented with reflection and refraction.
Adele checking out her repeated reflection in the mirrors.
Adele placing a button in the centre of a 1/2 glass of water. The light refracts here, creating an image of two buttons.
Adele decided that she wanted to continue this exploration with her own experiment. She grabbed the tin foil and headed out into the sun. She wanted to see the sun reflect it's light off the foil onto other objects.
There is always some sit down work to do - Language Arts.
Tree climbing time....
Time with friends...
This week we decided that Avril should begin swimming lessons after her swimming race last week. So naturally the other kids had a swim too.
Josef loves the water...
Avril starting lessons...
It was safety week so she got to try on a life jacket.
Josef discovered he could ride a noodle like a horse!!
Avril was unsure..but Josef refused :)
But Josef was definitely impressed with the engine and the tyres!!
They were all thrilled to be able to climb into the engine.
Damon sat in the drivers seat.
Then they were called out to an emergency!!! But they came back after 10 mins to continue with us :)
Here is Josef snuggling with daddy.
This is our first product a reversible half apron. We are very happy with this first project. We feel very encouraged to continue with God's blessing. Our achievement today is all down to an answered prayer. God is good :)
