It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for school around here! This is the last 2 weeks since I didn't get around to posting right after thanksgiving, that was a busy week(end) with lots of fun family activities!
Since Thanksgiving we have kind of jumped into Christmas mode around here. There's so little time, and so much fun Christmas stuff to do! So, this will be a mostly picture post.
I pulled out the little people nativity, train, and we opened a new Christmas house I bought last year that included santa, an elf, and Mrs. Clause. Here they are riding on the train.
A picture of math time one morning.
Aaron was learning take away with borrowing, I think he's finally got it.
On Wednesday before Thanksgiving we watched A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. The kids were surprised at their thanksgiving "dinner" just like they had in the movie.
The chickens think they own the climbing dome. I looked out the window one day and saw them just hanging out up there.
Alex had a lesson in making a salad. He did pretty good!
The boys all made The polar express lapbooks last week. Even Alex, he loved it. We watched the polar express too!
Alex made some popsicle stick snowflakes...(idea from no time for flashcards)
We did some fun penguin math.
I bought the boys Lego snowman to build after thanksgiving. They built it once, and then I made this challenge for them. I mixed up all the pieces in with other white legos to make this snow day hide and seek with Olaf (inspired by Almost Unschoolers).
This was Alex's first Lego creation that he did mostly by himself. I helped him follow the number directions, and find the occasional piece. He was so proud!
The boys asked to go swimming so we made it happen one day last week. They get to go in the hot tub at our local pool, so here they are warming up.
We bought the hide and hug olaf this year, so the kids have been having fun playing with him. Aric is giving Olaf a hug.
Well, that is our last 2 weeks in a few pictures. A lot more happened, but of course not everything is caught in pictures. I need to do another day in the life of post soon!
