I am finding it hard to keep her interest when the schooling material supplied is mundane and below her capabilities.
This is a struggle that we are figuring out slowly....as I more and more see the benefits of un-schooling...but that is another post altogether.
K had to do a unit on spiders, something she is absolutely terrified of.
I mean she squeals and runs at the idea of a spider.
Amazingly she took to the idea and we have had a great time with it.
We actually found a black widow and her spider lings in the shop and she stared at them endlessly.
We have done quite a few spider crafts for this unit but this one was my favorite so far.
Something super creative I saw the other day and had to share was this awesome cake made by one of the derby girls.
She did such a great job and E has claimed that she needs this one for her birthday next year.
Gotta love the cherry filling gore...
On an early morning, 5 in the morning, venture when E got up feeling a bit sick, I had to keep her occupied so as not to wake up the whole house.
She has that power.
I copied an idea that I saw recently online and thought it was a fun project to share with the kids.
Pancake bacon and eggs.
I've tried animals and flowers before but this was a new one.
Took a bit of time but worth it.
