School Stuff.

We are still chugging along with school, math and phonics being our main subjects. History is suddenly popular around here and the kids are enjoying all the crafts to go along with the lessons. We'll be incorporating the SOTW CD's shortly as well, and I'll be using them in the car or during quiet time for review purposes.

Our Olympic unit study is over and it was fun teaching the kids about all the sports, traditions, and symbols. The kids loved making crafts, but especially loved their torches. They had their own Olympic torch relay and they got to experience what happens during one from its beginning in Greece, to its final destination in the Olympics host city. We are also keeping a close eye on the US team to see how many medals are being won. All the information will be added to their lapbook, which is still a work in progress.

The kids showing off some of their Olympic crafts.
