Week Two, Tuesday
We started our morning writing in our nature journals. Nate drew some grass, and an ant, which turned into a tornado. Colin drew a striped bird (a mickey hawk), ants, ant homes and clouds. I attempted to sketch our elephant food plant.

It was wet in the yard from the violent storm we had yesterday, so the boys also enjoyed stomping in the mud and exploring the changed landscape of our yard. Some time was also spent grieving over the play fort, which was literally lifted and turned more than 90 degrees -- ripping off the slide & ladder in the process.

Colin read Level 1, Book 3 from the CHC phonics program.

We started learning about time. We went over concepts of day / night, seconds / minutes / hours. Nate lost interest about this time and went off to play. We continued by reviewing a clock face and learning the minute / hour hands. Some practice of telling time on the hour ensued. We counted by 5's and then practiced telling time on the 1/2 hours. Completed 3 pages in the MCP workbook about time; including writing the numbers on a blank clock face. Looked at the difference between digital and analog clocks and practiced matching time between the 2. After spending almost an hour, I decided it was time to finish up and Colin asked "Aren't we going to do anything trickier??" I promised him I'd try to find him something trickier for tomorrow. LOL

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.
