This week in our child-led homeschool…
I shared these photos on Facebook this week but thought I would share them again here. Do you ever bring your child’s art back out for them to continue working? This was the tape artwork Jack (5.5yrs) and Sarah (3.5yrs) created a few weeks ago. I brought it back out with some paints to see how they would be inspired. Sarah worked so hard on this piece; painting so carefully and intentionally. She is so proud to have it hanging in Jack’s room. Sarah wanted to create this for him. For maths, Jack chose to work with these coloured blocks a lot this week.
A provocation can be as simple as paint at the easel. Jack is still writing books like a madman! More and more words are popping up in them which is always a delight to see.
We had a little friend come and play this week. The three of them worked so hard on these block creations. They were completely silent! Sweet girl checking on her chickens.And joyfully counting each egg.Sarah was given this colouring book and she has been completely engrossed by it this week.

Sarah has been working hard on writing and representing her name this week. Sarah’s box of treasures in her room. Each piece on her shelf is quite deliberately placed. I love the small vase of flowers too which she picked for herself from the garden. Jack made these project boards this week. The one on the left says ‘The Clone Wars Jedi’ and the one on the right says, ‘The Clone Wars Sith’ (it says Sars but I think he got confused between Sith and Wars and got Sars ) I love the little R2D2 and C-3POI’ve been trying to encourage him to draw more detailed arms and legs to no avail. I do love the expressions on their faces though and the positions of their bodies. These Sith do look very menacing, don’t they?
Bubbles!Another simple provocation; chalkboard blocks, chalk, water and brushes.
