Oct 1 - Today we started nest week and what better breakfast than a nest breakfast. The potatoes are to signify the nest and the eggs and meat are the animals.
Our books for today.
Garrett filling in our 100 day sheet.
School was so hard today that Garrett took a nap.
Oct 2 - Continued on with nest week. Our books for today.
Doing his worksheets.
Reading about nests and why animals have them.
Working on his crafts. They turned out so cute!!
Oct 3 - This morning Garrett was watching one of his shows and trying to sing along. If you knew what the words were on the song you could understand some of what he was singing.
Our calendar for October.
Getting his pencils nice and sharp for school.
He wanted to wear his ski mask while doing school work.....since I'm the teacher I'll allow it :)
Garrett making his craft for today.
Our books for today.
Oct 4 - Playing outside before school.
Books for today.
School work for today.
For this one he had to put the pictures in sequence of when he thought they would occur. He actually did a pretty good job with it.
Oct 5 - Playing inside while I take a break from things we are taking back home to the cabin with us.
Potato Soup I made for dinner and I had some for lunch. It was soooo good!!
Oops didn't get many pictures of school today other than our books that we read.
He got head bumped by Sassy and it hurt. He wanted me to take a picture to see what it looked like, LOL.
Oct 6 - We normally start our morning chillin out. I drink my coffee and update bills, etc. Garrett gets to watch a show. Here he is enjoying sitting with Sassy.
Today was hip hop dance class. Garrett is really enjoying this!!
Last day of nest week and he is drawing his pictures.
Hole punching his work for the week to put in our binder.
We also put together his last craft. A birdhouse. He really enjoyed putting this together, he chose the color to paint it, and putting bird seed in it.
Oct 9 - Getting some energy out at the playground and the dog park.
Pumpkin carving day of fun!!
Oct 14 - Gymnastics day. This is Garretts favorite class. He loves coming and doing this once a week.
Oct 15 - Started turtle week today.
We watched the tortoise and the hare. Garrett really enjoyed this.
Devotions. These have been great!!
Reading about turtles.
We then put our turtle and lobster in water to see how much they would grow. Spoiler alert.....they didn't. Thankfully I only spent 1 buck on the package.
Next we did some school work. Today is our 26th day of school and Garrett was working hard on writing it. Then we worked on our letters and some math. Today was a good day for doing our work and Garrett worked really hard for me.
We then worked on our first craft. The life cycle of a turtle. Was very interesting and best part was they made it fun so it doesn't seem like he's learning when he is.
Then we worked on our tractor craft for the letter T. This one was really cute!!
I finished reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" and will be starting a new book.
Oct 16 - A new day of turtle week. These are the books we are reading today.
Sometimes we have rough days at school. Today was one of those days. Garrett really fights me on his handwriting and today....ugh!! He was sloppy, not trying hard and just in general being lazy about it. School normally takes us about an hour, sometimes 2. Today was past 2 hours before we were done.
He even fought me on doing crafts for today. Definitely an off day for Garrett!!
A new bedtime book we just picked up. These are kids that are having real adventures with God. Will read a different story each night.
I love that homeschooling allows us to learn life lessons outside of school as well. Today Garrett was outside helping Tim change the oil in the truck. These are just as important as all the other school things that he is learning in my opinion.
Oct 18 - Today we started the day with some nap time. Well at least for the dogs.....
School varies on start time for us. Some days we get right to it and other days we don't start till after lunch. Today Garrett wanted to get right to it. He had outside plans, lol.
What outside plans?? Well riding bikes, looking at bugs and watching the dogs....wait for it.....nap, LOL!!
Oct 19 - Today is our last day of Turtle week. Its been a great week and we learned a lot. First thing though...we have to go do laundry. Garrett had fun playing on my dash as we waited for it to get done.
Our books for today.
Writing our number for how many days we've done school.
This week we started doing blends with our words. So far Garrett seems to be doing really well with this.
Working on our handwriting.
Working on drawing his pictures.
Working on his craft for today. I think it turned out great!!
After our week is done Garrett really enjoys hole punching everything and putting in his binder.
So when Tim was outside he found this behind one of our wheels. I'm not sure what it is a shell too, but definitely not pretty!!
