They have all grown a bit bigger now and I am getting excited about having some home grown veggies on my dinner table.
The girls continue to be creative in their play. Recently they decided to do some videoing, so they made some props and created some LaLa Loopsy dramas.
Home school Happenings!!
Weaver has led us to investigate how a volcano works, we have read books and watched videos and then we built and exploded some in the back yard.
Some dirt and water = MUD!!! Add a plant saucer and a plastic cup, then start to build around the cup in a volcano shape.
Interlock.. Josef has been slowly working through interlock, his preschool program. We have been discussing light and dark. Josef has been exploring what it is like to be blind.
Back to the big kids, we have been reading and talking about energy. They both had the opportunity to build an electrical circuit. Damon created an alarm with light and Adele created a fan.
In Chapter 3 we have started to look at communication, so we returned to the Tower of Babel. WE looked at how God created language and He has the power to confuse it and to stop it for a time. He is in control. We have also been discussing what the purpose of speech is - to praise our God! So in that we looked at ways we should use our speech and ways we should not! Once a word is spoken we cannot take it back!
Here is Avril putting back together the number 1. It illustrated how we once all spoke the same language until God confused the languages at Babel.
I didn't get a photo of them telling me a thought in non-verbal communication, but I can tell you it was very funny. And they also told me nursery rhymes in pantomime. They all worked really well together.
On our visit to the local farmers market, the girls found some snails. The organisers of the markets decided to invite the girls to race their snails for a prize. The girls were delighted and we won a lovely bag of fruit.
