Homeschool Highlight

We ❤️ homeschooling!  Every week looks a little bit different at our house when it comes to homeschooling so I thought it might be fun to do a series of highlights every Saturday of some really fun or interesting things we did that week.  

My little guy has been requesting a shelf for his DS games.  It’s important me that my kids not only are book smart but have practical knowledge too.  I told him if he wanted a shelf we’d work together to build one.  We had a piece of leftover board from building game shelves in the basement and we bought a couple “L” brackets at Lowes.   We talked about choosing the correct size and kind of screws and then he got to work.  I helped him get the screws started but he used the screw driver to finish securing them.  (I didn’t get any pics of him actually building the shelf because I was busy fixing lunch.)  After he got it built he used the level and mounted it on his bedroom wall. Once again I only helped him start the screws.  He chose an item box as a bookend which is perfect because it holds his loose DS games safely too!  


He’s also been taking both an Art class and a Pottery class. He loves both of them and made some really fun things out of clay- like a wrestling mat! (Pictures to come when it’s been fired!)

Science was a blast!  A little balloon experiment showed us how yeast and sugar produce carbon dioxide (and make dough rise). 


To round out our lessons about yeast and Jesus being “the bread of life”, we took a fieldtrip to a local baker.  We got to go into the kitchen to see where all the yumminess is created.  Of course we celebrated by getting a Pot O’Gold cupcake!
