Creating words with the geoboard
Sarah creating shapes
Slow oven roasted tomatoes headed for homemade pasta sauce. Mmmmm….
I think I might have a slight addiction to homemade lemon lime sorbet…..so refreshingly good.
Enjoying homegrown cucumbers
Drawing shapes in coloured salt
…and Jack practising correct stroke order
Pretend play with window blocks on the OHP
Lots of working with light this week…these little translucent geoboards are fabulous
A monster making machine
Lots of questions about the body this week especially our bones. Here Jack and Sarah are tracing an x-ray image projected from the OHP onto a large piece of paper.
…and here on the light panel with OHP markers
I spent a beautiful evening, just me and my dad, at the Canberra Enlighten Festival. These illuminated horses danced. They were mesmorising.
This is a our national science museum. At the festival, many of our major museums and galleries were beautifully illuminated with artistic projections. Really wonderful.
A few of my favourites from this week
We haven’t had the light rope out in a while. I think the kids might have missed it.
I stumbled upon this most wonderful family portrait
Beautiful natural treasures in the cubby
I took this photo just before dinner one evening. I’m torn between making ‘school hours’ or following their natural rhythms. A day of learning from the moment he wakes until dinner is a little exhausting for this mama.
From next week I’m hoping to start a weekly photo post on Fridays called This Homeschool Week. I’m hoping to share some snippets of what Jack and Sarah have been working on over the week as well as some of the materials and resources we’ve been using. I hope you enjoy it.
