It's been 2 weeks
...all I can say it's truly amazing what a little attention can do for a kid
Fog horn is giving homeschool 2 thumbs up
though he still gets mad at spelling and writing
he shows up.
I have realized spending this time with him that he is not a good speller and has a hard time reading
so guess what we do?
and the we read some more
In history of the world we studied Genghis Kahn and voila...Chinese lanterns
Paul Klee German- Swiss artist was the artist of the week
..hence the art work
a favorite inspiration
too much studying...Mimi having a snooze fest.
a few books that Fog horn loves
"Busy times" is a plain and simple Amish book-
which he reads like nobodies business
Foghorn is also a " knight in training" and therefor adores Roland
soon we are on to Sam Samurai
Chef surprised me one day
my favorite all time American game
I had the same card set as a kid.
Now Foghorn and I are playing it together.
Mimi is on the look out for any incoming helicopters or space ships- there has been a lot of that kind of noise in the house these past week and Mimi is usually the target.
...and of course Martha has to do it again-
brought this home from the library
looks really good
( from pinterest)
Foghorn has had to " think " he way thru a lot of problems
and find his own answers
use the dictionary to find the spelling
and reads a lot
He gets to talk a lot- (how he processes)
we have spent hours on photosynthesis
and realized today having lunch at the café he was pouring sap on his waffles-
( maple syrup)
a by product of the whole photosynthesis he was learning...pretty neat.
His 3 favorites so far...
...funny, I can relate.
My heart feels full.
