We've had lots of fun this week in our homeschool! Our little girl surprised us all with these tasty little treats shown above. In the spring, she attended a baking class at our local homeschool co-op. She really enjoys baking and creating yummy things for us!
The kids were busy getting their projects ready for Geography Month. Our HEART Homeschool Group families have each chosen a different country to study. We chose Portugal, since we were able to actually travel there!
The projects came out really nicely! Our oldest made a nice project board about one of the cities she enjoyed visiting. Our little girl also made a project board, and she made a clay replica of a fishing boat. I have to say, we were extremely proud of our little guy. He doesn't usually enjoy "crafty" activities and it is a challenge to have him complete projects such as this. However, he really loved making his project this time, and worked so hard on it!
Isn't it cute? He made a 3-dimensional display of the different geographical features of Portugal. He included a mountain with a windmill, a river with a fishing boat and some logs being sent to be made into paper. He also added a rock wall, some olive trees, and some grape vines.
One of my favorite things about homeschooling is being able to really dig into projects and have fun creating things.
