Summer School

We’re well into our lazy Summer school schedule now, down to basically just keeping up with phonics, geography, and math in any sort of formal way. Here’s what we did this week.

Phonics: ch/tch (along with the intro to H.O.P. 1st grade level II)

Math: 11 times table

Time math: Showing time lapses of 15, 30, and 45 minutes; intro of time to the minute.

Money math: Counting groups of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies

Geography: New Brunswick

Art: We made thisFlag Day banner. I cut out the stars and Brady drew stripes on the red ones and “stars” on the blue ones (he hasn’t mastered stars yet so they’re sort of twisty ‘x’s) and then taped them onto the string.

In the kitchen we made a fruit salad for playgroup with watermelon hearts and mango stars


And jack-o-lantern cookies (in June. because why not, really?)

And I made a little art bag for Brady’s playgroup buddy

We’ve also done a lot of geocaching lately

And gone on a long walk with friends

And to the beach with playgroup

And to the Science Center

And to the park with Daddy

For all my complaining about Oregon weather (and I do complain about it bitterly and often) when it is good it is very, VERY good and we have had some glorious days in the last week or so. Perfect room-temperature weather, little-to-no wind, sunshine…we’ve been loving every minute of it.  How are things in your homeschool?
