Week One, Thursday
Ok, I need to figure out some better headings for these posts . . .

Today we did the first lesson from the dvd art program. The boys were enthralled and really enjoyed the process. They learned about lines, and created patterned caterpillars. We watched the lesson, pausing along the way as necessary, while they worked in the living room. When they were finished, Colin wanted to move on to the next lesson, and was disappointed when I told him we'd do Lesson 2 next Thursday.

Colin easily read Books 4 - 7 from Set 2 set of Bob Books.

Both boys practiced writing the numbers 1 & 2. Colin continued practicing numbers 3-5 and also the upper and lower case letters of A - H. They used lined chalkboards for this practice. Nate works as long as he is interested, and then is free to do something else. This is a pre-K year for him, so there is no pushing involved.

Today, they also created things with playdough, did a lot more drawing (including drawing on very large sheets of packing paper), created a shadow play in the dark laundryroom, played catch outside, and are currently creating a zoo with their small, plastic animals.

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
