I have to admit, ALL I wanted to do today was veg, just totally veg.
but I couldn’t allow that so… I kept myself busy with my lad. Still felt like I was dragging through the day. I totally spread this out over the course of the entire day.
1. did a craft/poem thing with the lad. I had to cut things out, he helped me glue them on. He read the poem several times.
2. did some math in a kindergarten math book. Just five pages. He enjoyed it.
3. did some experiments.
a. one didn’t work. We’ll try it again, using a different pop bottle and a bigger base bowl.
b. Seal with air
He had fun with this one.
We started with a small glass with a piece of cardboard, and upgraded to a piece of note paper. Once he exhausted the various ways to do this (full glass, half glass, turn fast, turn slow etc) He started to experiment with paper and water. Everything from adding food colouring to test out what happens when you mix what, to can you block a drain with cardboard and a glass, and including what happens if you add dish detergent to water (it goes colourless in case you didn’t know).
c. Make a volcano
If he had fun with the previous one….this was way over the top. Just plain fun. Mommy forgot to read the instructions the first time so we had to correct my error (and the lad had a chance to laugh at mommy’s forgetfulness). Had to call gramma to see if she had everything he need to do this all over again at her house. 🙂
We organized his stuff today. One binder for experiments, one for unit studies, and one for art work. Helps to keep things neater.
