Liberty found a leaf that looked like a heart on Monday, she was so excited and raves about what a special leaf she found. We were all pretty excited having never really seen a heart leaf before. As all leaves do it was quite crumbled by Tuesday. This evening, on a recently vacuumed living room rug she found a heart leaf as we were winding down for the night she found a heart leaf! Someone is definitely watching out for our girl!
Adleigh is working on shapes and writing letters.
Liberty is doing capitalization, citizenship, and equations.
Canton again is more traditional, although we did laugh, his science teacher did a fire drill 🤷🏻♀️
Art lesson on primary colors and Romero Britto
Yard laps for PE!
Adleigh’s self bubble map
Pink, popsicles, flamingo. She’s doing great at sounding out words!
Using play dough to make shapes and letters (good fine motor!)
Working out sounds like a champ! These are feelings about school
No more baby swings, no more teeter totter 🙁
It was a bit rough getting up this morning but we are ready!
Adleigh read a sweet story called Shelia Rae the Brave and has to draw a picture when she was brave. We worked hard on making sounds to letters, she did a great job!
Lou had a cute lesson on a book called The Dot about making your mark in the world. You then had to make artwork out of a black dot. Of course owls made it into her drawing!
She also had a bit of math and social studies.
Canton took a pretest for history and got 19/20 (this is a test for teachers to see what they already know, it’s not a grade) so unless he has a great teacher that will differentiate for him he might be a bit bored here. The other classes are going well. We have to submit a band video this afternoon, fingers crossed 🙂
They had a snack and recess outside and called this the “Best Friends Picnic”! Oh my heart!
The weather was much cooler on Tuesday, which brought out some of our nature friends
Adleigh has to tell about all the people who live in her house
Getting some math done
Virtual PE is a hit!
Liberty will never do school PE again haha
Adleigh’s “What I Like about Me”
9/17 is Constitution Day and Liberty made a family Constitution, all sounds great to me!
And look at these delicious French rolls!!
Here we come week three, but we are looking forward to the weekend!
Homeschool lends itself to a lot of cooking lessons
Today 8 x 8 = 64 bubbles
So many things!
Ready for a year like no other!
Canton started at 8 and has a pretty traditional schedule. The girls started live at 9 and have a more flexible schedule. We hit some technology snags and having two meetings at the same time was a bit much, but we will get it.
Playing race to 120
Recess for sisters and best friends 🙂
Break between classes = Legos
It was actually sweet they got to eat lunch all together, that definitely would not have happened any other year 🙂
Despite some hiccups we made it through the day. Adleigh seemed excited to engage. Liberty’s teacher is very organized. Canton will have a lot to navigate with all the new classes but he will get it. It’s just another new normal. They are certainly learning to be patient and flexible.
Okay, let’s see what day 2 brings.
