Week 31, and 32:
Wow I can't believe we only have 4 weeks left of Beyond Little Hearts For his Glory! Buster finished the Heart of Dakota Emergent readers, and will be starting Drawn Into the Heart of Reading level 2/3! I'm excited to say that at the beginning of the year he was a reluctant reader, and now he tells me reading is his favorite part of school. We have been so blessed by Heart of Dakota's reading selections, and Buster has enjoyed every one of them. It is amazing to actually have him checking out the books he gets to read next and he is excited about them. Other than that he is just plugging away at all of his work. When we finish Beyond we will continue with DITHOR, Spelling, Latin, and Math. We also plan to do one or two of the Little House books along with The Prairie Primer. Sweetpea is in unit 24 of Little Hearts, and will just keep going with that until she is done.
Here is some of Sweetpea's Little Hearts fun!
Learning about how things absorb.
Spear fishing like a Native American!
The attack on New Amsterdam!
How many Liters does it take to fill a bucket?
Cousin T turned 8, and had a fun Science party!
My sister mixing up the punch!
All ready for our Oregon Trail co-op!
We had a fun time on Thursday trying out some things from pioneer life. The kids got to core apples, churn butter, grind wheat, make sour dough cakes, wash laundry in a bucket, and eat some homemade ice cream, and cobbler.
Sweetpea looked so cute in my old dress, and bonnet. I bought this bonnet at the Laura Ingalls museum in Minnesota when I was 4!
Sweetpea enjoying her Aesop's fables readers!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for my review of these books!
