It’s been a little while since I have shared a This Week post, hasn’t it? I used to really enjoy sharing those little snippets of our week and so I am hoping to start sharing a little more regularly again.

Over the last few months I have been so grateful to meet some other truly inspiring women who also homeschool in a similar way to us. They are going to join me in sharing glimpses into their days. Joining me are Sara from Happiness is here, Jess from Memoirs of a Childhood and Rachel from Racheous – Lovable Learning.

I am hoping that these weekly posts will give you all a nice, authentic look into our days, how Jack and Sarah spend their days and what their learning looks like in the most natural sense.

So here is a little of what we have been up to this week.

An Everyday Story
Sarah exploring letters and numbers.

Circulatory System Project: Here Jack wanted to know about red and blue blood; why blood changed colour and how it moved throughout our bodies. He chose bingo dabbers and oil pastels to represent his understanding, drawing many many pictures of blood moving to and from the heart.

Our project shelf. Jack’s questions in his own words are written on the yellow post-its. These are what we will be investigating next week. He has also asked for some red and blue playdough to recreate the blood flow through the heart.
Making patterns with triangles in playdough. Sarah set this up herself with materials from the art cart and the playroom.

Making little fingerprint fellows. Jack ADORES this book. He gets it out most days.

Jack and Sarah initiated this art. They grabbed fluoro tape from the art cart and tore a large piece of paper. They made a wonderfully geometric piece which is now on Jack’s wall above his bed.

Warmer days means more time outside playing. They are giggling so loudly here as Jack throws mud on Sarah.
An Everyday Story
Our little chickens have really stepped up their egg production. 3-5 eggs a day now! Each day Sarah feeds the chickens and collects the eggs. She counts each one then carefully takes them inside.
An Everyday Story
Superhero Project: Last week we went to the fabric store and Jack spoke with the assistant about buying materials to make a superhero mask and cape. He purchased a length of fabric and two squares of felt. This week he created his own mask.

Jack found an image of Robin then designed and cut his pattern…

My favourite moment from this week. Finding this little scene when I went to tuck him in for the night. Love.

    Really love this way of recording the week, so interesting to read and see what you’ve been doing. Inspirational, might even give this a go myself.

  2. It is wonderful how grown-up and independent your kids are!

    Beautiful, as always.

    Where did you get those cool triangles that Sarah played with?

    I truly enjoy your blog and these snippets. They are so inspiring.

  6. Your week looks so calm and busy! Beautiful and inspiring photos.

  7. I think I really need to do this for people that ask me what we do. It seems so much and then just ordinary living at the same time. New goal is to come back here Sunday with a post to link up. Great inspiration!
