This week we started on a new adventure, an adventure where both Z and Lil’C are learning out of a formal school setting. I will be honest, I was worried about taking on both of their educations and wondered how I would find one on one time with Z. This week I learned that with a little bit of organization, a lot of prep, a bunch of patience and a lot of enthusiasm that it is doable.
We had a great first week!! We are loving our Rocks and Minerals unit and all three of us are totally engrossed in it. We started an online Spanish program this week, Z and I started the 4th book of Life of Fred (our math series) and we did a lot of reading and review.
Lil’C has her life set up just like at her Montessori School. She has “works” that are out only when Z and I need time together. This week she worked on counting, letter sounds, writing mail, studied rocks and played with lacing cards. She also joined us for Handwriting, journal time and for all of our Rocks and Minerals activities.
Here are some of the things we did this week to kick off our Rocks and Minerals unit!!
We learned all about the layers of the earth and what makes up each layer.
