Paper Mache

This is our project Thursday that we started two weeks ago. We are making paper mache snowmen. It's taking us a while to finish them. Hopefully this Thursday we'll get them finished.

Homeschool books

Well, I get excited this time of year because this is usually the time I start shopping/purchasing my school books for next year. For 1-3 grade I really like Lifepacs and how they work. But for Mycah for fourth grade I have been shopping around and I think we have finally decided on what we will be using.
First, for Language we've decided to use Bob Jones University English.
For Science we are going to be using Apologia, Exploring Creation with Astronomy. Along with that we will be using the The Notebooking Journal. I am going to get one for Trin too and just have them both do it together.
Bible, we are going to be using Lifepac.
Also, for History and Geography we will be using Lifepac.
Math was a little bit harder to decide. I was stuck between Teaching Textbooks and Math-U-See. My husband was all for Math-U-See. After researching and watching the videos from both places I decided that Math-U-See was for us. It seems like the set up for Teaching Textbooks is better for older students. I was very impressed with the video about Math-U-See and the way for teaching and understanding it. I can't wait to try it!

So, what are you going to be using?

I am finishing up my cloth napkins for the napkin swap and I have fabric and a pattern for a quilt that I'm gonna be working on. It's the kind that you quilt as you go. It will be my first time trying it so we will see how it goes. I'm very excited about it!


Today we made last weeks project Thursday. We're a little behind...

The green one is Jhet's. The pink one Trin's and the blue one Mycah's.
