Pick a Number!
We've been working on a poetry unit and have had a lot of fun reading tons of different poems. Today, I picked up a large anthology of poems and said "Pick a Number!" I flipped to that page and read a poem. I went back and forth between the boys for a good 45 minutes reading different poems. The focus of this unit has been exposure, and I think this was a great, interactive way to expose them to poetry.

We also created crayon disks today by stripping the paper off a bunch of crayons, dropping them in muffin tins, and melting them in the oven. The boys were fascinated with how they melted together and had fun drawing with them once they cooled. The toughest part was stripping the paper off the crayons -- I swear they must glue it on these days!

The boys also worked in their workbooks and listened to me read out loud (in addition to the poems.)

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.
