In other news…..I have recently started hosting a group of kids in my home from about 1130 - 1330 to do some group learning (and messing about!) Today we had a look at the layers of the earth and discussed minerals and Mohs scale of hardness. We are doing more and more co-op type learning with a creative writing class (Kerrin) a craft class (Carrie), a geography class (me), a historical class/activity (Tracey) and a Nature Study/Ambleside class (Joy).
I am also enjoying interacting and using the skills of older homeschooled children. At the moment one is busy preparing to manage the murder/mystery activity for Rachel's birthday. Another is going to be featuring Faith on her photography blog 'Your Capture'.
With that I leave my desk to go and paint another coat on Faith's desk….only a week before her room makeover needs to be complete….Yikes, I see some late nights in my future.
