If my memory will allow - I'm going to post some of what we did in our homeschool each week. We just finished up Sonlight's Core 1 and started into Core 2. Here are a few things we did this week.
- The kids continued on in the basics.
Jo working on his math.
Caleb working on his Math
- We finished reading a biography of George Mueller last week. So, Monday we watched Oliver Twist. It was a great way for the kids to not only get a visual on the time period, but to see work houses and the lives of orphans up close and personal. We watched the Disney Version - I kind of wish we would have gotten the older musical version. Oh well.
- After reading about the benedictine Monks, we made illuminated letters. Here is an example of Caleb's. He went a little overboard with the gold paint!
- Aaron read the read alouds and Bible to the kids last year. This year we decided that he would continue doing Bible with them and I would take back over the read alouds. He still has 2 or 3 read alouds to finish up from Core 1, so he'll probably continue reading when he has time. So, I've got to enjoy Red Sails to Capri with the boys this week - it's been a lot of fun to read aloud.
