Our Homeschooling Week, April 15-19

This homeschooling week started off with an unplanned study on poison ivy remedies.  My daughter brought the itchy rash home with her from last week’s mission trip.

Z7 updated the current conditions chart and practiced weather related jokes.  His favorite this week is, “What does a cloud wear under it’s raincoat?  Thunderwear!”

For “Poem In Your Pocket” day we not only kept poems in our pockets, but also studied poetic devices.  Instead of notebooking or lapbooking our printable mini posters, we put them on our current (art in progress) chalkboard wall.  I think it looks nice having some of the blank spaces filled in.
