For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

What we have been up to

I am still doing some planning for our homeschool. Again, planning is still something new to me, so it is taking me some time to get it all organized in my head and then transferred to paper.

I have recently came across so many ideas that I would like to implement that it is going to haywire my brain very soon. (Hope not).

Stuff that are on my mind include

  • Introducing more memory work,

  • Try again a reward system to encourage diligence and responsibility

  • Work on our homeschool room or walls I should say, since we do not really have a dedicated room (visuals and the like)

  • Making up my own French curriculum (started; I am using the Prima Latina student text as my template; I love it),

  • Incorporating a reading/quiet afternoon time

  • Do some lapbook/notebooking/posters

Meanwhile, Zach and I have been working on some crafts and science projects. It has been fun.

A cardboard Neighbourhood we are working on. Hopefully I will post some more pics when that one is fully completed. We've got more buildings to add.

This is Zach's latest art: A battery-powered room (that's what he called it)

A science experiment about what disolves and what doesn't

And another one on the force or air

And another one that I do not think turn out as what it was supposed to, but made an nice art project:

Have a great day,

Hi Joelle,

I was thinking of using boxes to make trains and I chanced upon your box-ful of shops and houses! What a fun thing to do! Loved your idea! ;)
