Nature around here
The boys and I decided it was time to take the school outside. We took our journals (plain old lined paper) and took a walk around the block to see what Natureish items we had around our house.
I have to say this was a very fun and engaging activity.
We found acorns.. LOTS of acorns, it seemed every time I was turning around they wanted to pick up more acorns. We found some flowers still in bloom, mini roses, open faced roses, found some Yellow apples and a kiwi fruit tree! That was an awesome find ( thanks Aunt Pearl for letting me know what it was). We also found large baseball sized walnuts. Thing 3 Wanted to play ball with them.
We came home, took a picture of the big bounty and then we will go through and count, match, paint, create and whatever else they decide to do with them.
This is how I like spending my day… with the kids learning. I still have the “messy” house and I’m okay with that for now. I want to be with them when they learn, see the excitement when they discover something new.
Our mess will still be there and it will get cleaned, just not today.. or at least not all of it done today.
It’s GREAT to be a homeschooler…..
