The weather has been incredible this fall; super warm and dry and sunny. We have taken advantage by getting out and about a lot, while trying to stay on task with school We have gotten into a great routine in regards to lessons.
In the morning when I bike Avi to his preschool, Zoe does her morning review work. Then she and I work on her core subjects (math, reading, writing, grammar, spelling) before we bike in to her specials at the base school: art, music, and PE. So, that is 3 days a week. On the other days we can focus more on our core and then we work on projects in the afternoon when Avi gets home. He likes to join in for Science, History and Art. After lunch they have free time to enjoy the shortening days, and we all take an hour or so in our rooms for quiet time.
Avi has been requesting to do his own homeschool work lately, too. He and I are focusing on learning the letter sounds; he is already quite adept at counting so I may start a real math curriculum sometime. He loves to count and draw volcanoes and has also gotten interested in space shuttles and rockets lately. It’s fun to see where his interests take him!
Zoe, as always, loves plants and animals. She and I still go to volunteer at the animal shelter when we can. It isn’t as easy this year with our schedule, so we tend to go on the weekends. Out back she has quite a few plant projects going on with her seed collecting, snails, and gardening kits that she creates. The Hoke green thumb definitely passed on to Zoe.
