Elowen wants to do school too, so I bought her a few preschool workbooks.  photo aug 2015 164a_zpshctjopgb.jpg

Zahana and Rohan are learning about astronomy.  It's nice that I've already done this and don't have to make new plans.

Wednesday mornings we do language arts together.  We had a month of poetry, and the kids wrote several poems...or "pullems" as Elowen says.

The kids are enjoying history the most I think.  Again, no new planning for me - yay! 
Learning about vikings and making rune stones out of salt dough.

Native Americans in the far north. I saw this awesome book igloo and thought we'd give it a try.

Guess it's best to stick with what I know works.... paper tipis for the plains indians.

  1. I am so inspired by all of this. And was moved by that lovely Pullem. :)
