week 12 of homeschooling

this one flew by and we almost missed it!

mon, nov 2:
today was officially declared grandparents day and school canceled as the grands took the kids to lunch, dinner, and shopping in between!

tues, nov 3:
· today was election day so we did our last research then took the kids to vote. they were so excited and we thought happy to learn about the electoral process, though we learned they thought they got to vote. oops! so their first lesson was you have to be 18, not a popular rule with our kids. we also talked about treating people respectfully even if you disagree with them. with the issues and candidates on our ballot, it was easy to find examples. (i said that respectfully!)
· then we took a hike at a new reserve (that we'll be paying for over 10 more years thanks to that levy passing... also said very respectfully).
· we watched an episode of little house and talked about the lessons (so easy & fun!).
· i think allen did some work with them. i can't remember past the sugar fog. we had a lot of candy.

wed, nov 4:
· today the grands left, which is always a very sad occasion. but we took some family pics, hated but needed of course (in my opinion!) and enjoyed our time with grandma and grandpa before they left.
· we watched an episode of little house and talked about the lessons.
· from the prairie primer: reading, math (grasshopper math!), nutrition, bible, language, science
· we may have done something else. i need to keep up to date or (as josh once said when he was little), my remembers fall out of my brain.
· awana night at church, western night!

thurs, nov 5:
· allen did something, i'm sure. i'll have to ask. (did, he won't tell me now!)
· we watched an episode of little house and talked about the lessons.
· we've been needing to cut down a (falling) tree in the front yard and what better way to learn about hard work and chopping wood? so that took up a good portion of the day, sawing, chopping, and cleaning up. and of course our weird kids LOVED it! they cut all the pieces into firewood even, just like pa (which is what they're now calling allen).
· from the prairie primer: reading, bible, safety, cause & effect, writing
· no jack the dog wasn't really in the lesson, i just thought he was cute. :)

fri, nov 6:
· allen did something, yeah, will ask. (still won't tell!)
· we watched an episode of little house and talked about the lessons.
· from the prairie primer: reading, grammar, writing, bible, science, living, (we skipped eating turnips!)
· we decided to walk to school, just like laura did in the book. it was great! see the next post for details.
