Oatmeal is a VERY common occurence at our breakfast table...takes no energy, not a big mess, and feeds and fills lots of people very economically....so, today we started w/ oatmeal......and a table full of new supplies...
Everyone is always excited to get started on a new year. I am teaching the younger 5 around the kitchen table this year. (We have been watching Bob Jones dvds for several years now, so this is a change.) Sarah Jayne is helping w/ the schooling, so we are....team teaching. There are two 6 year olds, one 7 year old, one 10 year old, and one 12 year old.
How many shades of red did your kiddos wear today?
James is showing off his new loot!
Here's the first map drawing.....Mohammed II's conquered lands.
These are most of the books we are going thru to start with....We are studying early American History using the Beautiful Feet curriculum. We will learn by reading lots of books....copious quantities of book reading...we are all very excited!
By the end of today, Megan had almost finished her little backstitched sampler....
And Madeline, with her right arm still casted, is doing a lovely job on her sampler!
I believe my high school students had a fine day. They are using the Bob Jones dvd's...3 kiddos upstairs studying Geometry, Biology, English, French 2, American Literature, and American History.
