I've been ill for the past 3-4 days with a sore throat, fever, coughing, and more. NOT complaining, just explaining why homeschooling has been back burned a bit. The lad was "off" yesterday morning as well but went out of the house to play at gramma's for a bit. Came back a cheerful lad. Good for him to get out of the house for a bit I think.
Anyways, was thinking I feel somewhat less muddle-headed this morning so that I should do something schooling related so we played lego and listened to Adventures in Odyssey. Later we will do some exploring of different websites - Clickschooling sends me almost daily emails so we'll go through them and see what we can learn and explore from those. :) I'll link here what we go and look at and hopefully say what we thought about them. :)
we went to the national art gallery and the lad made this
still life. In this pic the monarchs flew in the window (behind the candle holder) and they are eating all the fruit that's hidden behind them. Rather a neat idea I think for a six year old. We then had fun playing around with the 3D twirler. Then we went to the jungle art page where he created this masterpiece. I tried hard to save the image but couldn't for the life of me figure that one out. So.. anyways, then I totally petered out of energy and had a nice lay down. I do dislike being ill.
I was awoken from a lovely nap by an apologizing boy child and found him making some physical art. I'll need to upload a picture for your enjoyment. :)
