Justin and I submitted sketches for this weeks Sketch Tuesday. We were to draw something with whiskers. I initially did a picture of “daddy with whiskers”, but on query from my lad, did a face of Milo the cat instead. yes, I am a horrid artist, but hey… at least I submitted something 🙂 Next week…something that floats. Justin was very excited about this one and immediately drew something. 🙂 I am still thinking about what I want to draw for this assignment.
Today we did the first day of the Terrific Tigers Unit study/lapbook from Download N Go. I have a cat crazy lad so spending the $8.00 for this item was a no brainer. He had fun doing the first section. We didn’t do it ALL (as in what day one called for), he’s five and this is a multi-age study. So you have a child who can do some, do what he can, dictate what he can, and leave the rest.
As to the study itself I found that it’s well done. I have to say, I would have no problem getting some of their other products. 🙂 I enjoyed doing the day one of this five day study with him.
I have a fairly electic approach to homeschooling, I see value in doing a variety of things, and having a five year old lad gives me some sway in how I do things. I am hoping to start doing some latin with him at some point….But I think I might leave that in his dad’s purview, his dad is more the language person in this household, though I’ll probably get roped into it…..
What else…today we went to the library to get tiger books…they had ONE (a bit of a bummer that), we had plans to stop in and see one of the seniors in the old folks home, but forgot after playing with trains to do that… went to the dollar store to get a drink instead. but you know what? …tomorrow is another day, always lots to do in the course of a single day.
