We are rowing out last book of the year with my 10 and 12yos. We are doing Skylark. (We did Sarah Plain and Tall at the beginning of the year.) We are also doing this with our co-op group which adds another layer of fun too.
Some of our fun so far has included taking photos with some of our prized possessions. One son chose a Bible and the other his Spiderman pajamas. We learned about fire last week and did a lot of the lessons in the manual - from learning about different types of fire and fire extinguishers, to learning how to operate a fire extinguisher. It was a great time to purge our old ones and get some new ones. They LOVED doing this. We also built a fire and cooked on it (s'mores and hotdogs of course).
We've done some painting and color mixing. (I'm thankful for friends who are artistic so my kids have this exposure). I'm trying to incorporate more art into our day as they do love it and some days I'm just bad about doing it. As we enjoy the warm days, it just seems right to do art outside too.
Anyone else rowing Skylark now? Want to share some of the fun things you have done?
