I just got a new phone and I am starting to take pictures with it exclusively and I am not sure how to make collages. A thank you to Laurie for helping me out with this. It is a learning process for someone who grew up before the computer/video age. This post may be a bit more disjointed as well, but here it goes...
We enjoyed a Spaghetti Dinner and Game Night with our homeschool group.
|part of Quentin's history journal|
We learned about the geography, culture and the history of the people who live in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. We particularly looked at their history in the Middle Ages, since that is the period we are studying this year.
We also worked on our usual English program and we continued our study of food webs. Sam is on a roll lately with his school work as we finally got the curriculum that works for him (Teaching Textbooks Algebra II, Rosetta Stone Japanese, The Power is in Your Hands Composition...)
Their Aunt Brenda has given each of the kids some projects to do in which she has called Mission Possible. Alex's challenge was to make three postcards and send them to her next week. This week he made the postcards based on the paintings he has been making lately.
Quentin has been working on a Medieval Math project.
We had our friends, Hope and Eddie, over to play games...
which made us all very happy.
We created things, just because we wanted to, not because it was assigned.
Alex made a new painting, this time of fireworks using various techniques, which was the skill he was learning this week.
(Post coming soon.)
Alex also worked on various skills on his iPad using a program designed for autistic people, Camp Discovery.
We got lots of snow and ice, like most of the country.
Unfortunately, we had to miss roller skating this month because of it.
