We were suppose to go to the park today but the rain came. So we stayed home. I missed getting together with the other moms and letting the kids visit. The boys usually do their seat work first and then maybe a small break, lunch and we do our Heart of Dakota, reading and extra stuff either after lunch or during lunch.
I love when learning just happens though... it is great. We were reading about rodents & weasels. I asked Alyssa to bring the container of Ranger Rick & My Big Back Yard out of the school room. These were Dakota's and Alyssa's when they were young. My Wyatt & Wesley LOVED them! They sat in the floor ... looking, reading, cutting and drawing.
This is where Alyssa reads her science and history. She loves it.
We are also reading "Little House in the Big Woods." I am using the Praire Primer for extra activities, questions... today we made butter! Just a simple little thing.. not like back in the old days. The boys were so surprised. Laura helped ma churn the butter.
We also looked up Square dancing and jigging. Yes, the internet/google is so helpful. I shared with them how my Dad loved to do the jitter bug. They though that was so funny.
Love days when it just happens.... learning.
