We have another great week of the Homeschool Nook Link Up Party for you, where bloggers all over the internet come to share their latest and greatest homeschool related posts. It’s always fun to see how others are learning in their homeschool, so make sure you stick around and get inspired! First, we’d love to share about how we spend the last week in our own homeschool!
First let me just say, “Happy Fall Y’all”! Missouri weather can be so crazy sometimes. One day its in the 90’s and you’re sweating to death. The next, it’s a crisp fall day and you’re pulling out the hoodies and jackets. Hopefully you are all embracing the cooler temperatures and getting as many bonfires in as possible!
Last Week in Our Homeschool
Last week we had a lot of fun in our homeschool! We spent most of our week doing our regular work, and then finished the week off with another field trip.
(Please excuse the mess. Our kids were making memories!)
Before we get to have our fun, I make sure the book work gets done. Sometimes that means wrapping up some loose ends with some car-schoooling going to and from field trips and other engagements.
In science we studied the difference between salt water and fresh water. This experiment showed us how salt slows down the rate at which water can freeze. The pic isn’t great, but we were observing and comparing the differences between ice cubes with salt or sugar poured on top of them.
We also spent some time in the kitchen learning how to make pancakes for breakfast (purple pancakes per lil’ sis request) and a Mississippi Mud Pie since we studied the state of Mississippi the week before.
Lil Sis spent some time working on her letter sounds as she prepares to learn to read. It’s almost time!
For our field trip, we visited a pumpkin patch where we all made new homeschool friends. There’s nothing better than meeting new friends (both mom, and kids!).
We started our day by playing in a tub of corn kernels, bowling with pumpkins, and climbing on haystacks. We even got to pet some baby goats which was super fun!
Then we got to go on a hayride to pick out our pumpkins. The girls even learned a little about the life cycle of pumpkins.
We finished off the day by getting lost in a corn maze. Okay, we didn’t get lost, but I always have a fear that we will! The girls had a blast!
