Now I'm sorry but, the picture of her with the pie slicer cutting up the apple pie baby was a bit much (notice the coffee being spit out of my nose) and the first picture of the roast turkey costume with the baby stuffed in it and the hacked off turkey legs with little paper turkey booties is just plain wrong. Even creepier is the fact that the baby legs can be "stuffed" into the turkey legs for movement. Yeah-because after I get my Turkey all golden brown that's what I want to see on my table....moving legs. A little too rare for my taste.
Anyway, here are some pictures from today's homeschooling.
Morgan worked on United States History specifically Betsy Ross and how our flag came to be. She also learned how to fold a flag correctly. I missed that picture. She also worked in her Open Court Reading Book by SRA. We love this book. Great modern stories that the kids can relate to.
Morgan is also working on some Geography with the Pacific States of Washington and Oregon. And doesn't Patrick look bright eyed and bushy tailed to begin his day? He worked on English Literature and World History. We love his World History Book. It comes with a CD that has chapter reviews and corrects the work as he goes along which means less work for me! This week we are covering Islam and Muslim Civilizations.
Tae loves doing his schoolwork. He had lots of fun cutting out the ovals for the penguin he made. We covered ovals, the number 2, color green, the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme and the letter B. Tae is doing great with his cutting skills. And here's the completed Penguin. Tae's such a ham in front of the camera. This is our Boxer Pete...who naps all day....unless someone drops food...or a leaf blows...or someone coughs...or uses the can opener...or... Morgan and Tae also did some Spirographs today. I was shocked at how cheap the kit is now. Everything is plastic and it only comes with a red pen. When we were kids didn't it come with the pen with four ink colors? I pulled out the colored pencils for them instead.Here they are on the coffee table making all kinds of cool designs. Martha Stewart should call my kids for ideas for her show. Anything is better than the roast turkey baby.
