Here we are two weeks later. This day was wear your hat to class day. It really was! I am not just saying that because she's wearing her hat. I had it written out in my notebook where I keep track of our days. I have gone through my notebook and randomly added some rewards or encouragements along the way. She looks forward to seeing what's next.
We are using My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures. This lesson is working on making a floorplan of her room. She really got caught up into this and enjoyed all the measuring of her room, windows, doors and furniture. We even moved some of furniture on her map and then went to her room and tried it. We decided the way we originally had it set up was best.
Another view of her map. She now has it hanging on her wall.
Here are her first two vocabulary cards that she made. The definitions are on the other side. This program is really allowing her creative side to come out.
Here we happened to move out to the dining room to finish this project up. She is working on Astronomy this year and she is also working on her first lapbook. (again, combining her creative side with learning!) She was working so hard on writing the paper for the inside of this she didn't even realize I set up the booklet and took her picture. She was really surprised later when she was looking through the pictures that I downloaded!!
Ok...now join me....It's the most wonderful time of the year...... I can't hear you!!
