Weekly Wrap Up: Mother's Day/5K training/Lap books
We've been working on Lap Books this week. We started Zoology Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day at the children's request. So we started on the lap books for the the first chapter. The picture above is the file folder folded into lap book style. The picture below is the cover of one of the kids lap book. They really enjoy making the cover for their lap books. :) This one is Graham's. He had a great time drawing these birds.
The lap book below shows some of the information. We are just at the beginning, so we haven't done the writing in it yet. That is next week's work. We've been using
My little one wanted to spend some time doing some work on her alphabet so I started her with The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading . She has been working well with this approach and I have found the program to be very complete and whole in its approach. One of the best I have seen yet. She worked on the alphabet puzzle below as well. She really loves this puzzle and played with a fair amount throughout the week.
It was Mother's Day this past weekend and I wanted to share the gifts my kids gave. My eldest daughter crocheted me a lovely hot pad. She did such a great job and I was thrilled. They also gave me a new mug to enjoy a good cup of Joe in and a lovely new Bible in the NASB version. I had been wanting one in that version to carry with me in my purse. My youngest daughter made me that beautiful card at Sunday School along with the sucker flower! I felt very special and loved! :)
