Holiday's and School
After the Holiday's getting back into the swing of things is soooo hard. We normally take from Thanksgiving to New Years off and do Christmas school that is everything we do is focused on Christmas. We have done lapbooks, unit studies, read alouds and just plain fun Christmas stuff in the past. We had not planned on taking any time off except Thur and Fri. But Biggun sorta messed that up for himself this year. By not completing some assignments on time so he is behind on a few things and needs to catch up. We might get some Christmas schooling in before Christmas but not sure when.
So instead of Christmas school Biggun just started a new section on his science program. He is learning about atoms. I can't wait to see where this is going. He really enjoyed the first two days worth lessons. I see some science experiments in our future.
Biggun is having fun w/ fractions adding/subtracting/multiplying and dividing, that will come in handy with cooking. He can practice w/ some online math games and with helping me make cookies and pies for Christmas.
If we get around to doing Christmas school I will share what we choose to do. Do any of you Christmas school? If so what do you do? Please share....
