Ok, so this week was filled with some fun, lots of learning and a couple meltdowns.
We have been learning about the parts of a sentence and this week we focused on the different kinds of verbs. We are using First Language Lessons and it's fun. This picture below is a paper chain to help illustrate the Linking Verb. It worked beautifully.
Here's the real fun.
We just began a book study from Progeny Press called "The Whipping Boy". The first pre-reading question directs us to reading about Castles. He's read the book Castles and really enjoyed it which is awesome. I thought it might be fun for my boy to build a castle, so he did.
I like the towers, don't you?
We went to the library last week and to my surprise my oldest picked out a book on Thomas Edison, for fun! This was an awesome student led learning moment. I took total advantage of it. Here he is colouring a mini book on the light bulb, while little brother is enjoying his Kid K'nex.
