homeschool robot week

Every week I think “this week is my favorite”, but Robot week, wins, hand down!  The best part of this week was watching my kids light up when I told them I bought a bunch of old appliances from Goodwill for them to disassemble and repurpose in to robots.  An old VCR, an old clock radio, a remote control, a coffee pot and a old game controller, all for $20 and we harvested a ton of parts and pieces.  They loved every minute of taking the appliances apart – they were fascinated.  When you add in that we were totally geeking out that Storybots regrammed Taryn’s Storybot artwork, it was the best week yet!  Any week that we have a lot of Storybots is a great week, Jonah is obsessed!

camping theme homeschool

This week was about one of our favorite things:  camping!  Actually, it was more like 2 weeks since we ventured out for some real life experiences in a cabin on the Frio River.  We always have a blast there and I took over 1,000 photos with my real camera (coming soon).  Instead of our usual sensory bin, we opted this week to do camping scenes that we made out of paper and other manipulatives.  I love that as the week went on they grew and changed and were moved all around.  Taryn and Jude also painted story stones.  You can see a video of Taryn telling part of her story using stones here.  I think Jonah’s favorite was the pretend campfire Taryn and I set up for him in the living room.  Complete with cotton ball marshmallows.  It was great practice for the real thing just a few days later.  I love that homeschooling gives us the flexibility to get out in to the world more.  To go, do, see, touch, travel and explore.

preschool weather week

We had so much fun with weather week that we stretched it out to last 2 weeks.  We had a ton of stuff to learn and explore and it just wouldn’t fit in to one week.  That’s one of my favorite things about learning at home, we can bend and adjust to what the kids are most interested in.  We bought a rain gauge and use it all the time now.

preschool space week

Space week was a blast but sort of a repeat for us as we spent several months studying space last school year.  We added in some fun preschool stuff for Jonah to spice it up a bit.  He really loved the big planet space magnets, those were a hit!

preschool homeschool easter week | personal iphoneography

preschool easter weekWe had a wonderful week celebrating our Lord’s resurrection.  The kids really loved the cross paintings and the resurrection eggs (that I found on sale, score!).  We hosted an Easter egg hunt with friends that was allergy friendly and had a blast, so it was a busy week.

preschool dinosaur week

Hands down, their (and my) favorite part of dinosaur week was the frozen egg project.  It was actually surprisingly easy to get little dinosaurs in to tiny water balloons.  The kids loved using water droppers to excavate the dinosaurs out.  It took awhile but they were interested and it kept them busy, win win!  And we all spent the week with Storybots dinosaur songs stuck in our head!  And the dino park with homeschool friends was a blast too.
