It's exciting to see signs of spring coming! The trees are budding, daffodils are up. I'm looking forward to warmer weather so we can get outside more.
We're still learning about birds.
This week, I laminated 2 sets of bird identification cards I found online to go with the bird toobs that I added to our collection of plastic animals.
We learned in our read aloud that Mr. Audubon would arrange dead birds on a grid and copy them square for square.
We used our GeoBlocks (affiliate link) to play a game.
I would say the capital, and the kids would guess the country.
Jack and Hannah each got 5, but there were still quite a few that neither got.
Speaking of blocks, Katie used our Can Do Cubes to spell out the names of the different birds on our cards.
Each time she spelled a bird name, I'd show her the bird figure that matches the picture.
The big kids matched all the bird figures to the cards.
They colored more bird pictures from our copywork pack on Audubon.
Also for geography (but on a different day), I had the kids do our world GeoPuzzle to brush up on where things are overall.
They were surprisingly fast at this one, working together. I'm going to have them do our other GeoPuzzles, too.
Josiah turned 20 this week!
And Brianna turned 17!
Since both the birthday kids had free scoop coupons, we headed to Baskin Robbins for a treat one day after school.
We had ice cream at home, from the birthday cakes, but somehow, getting to pick your own flavor is more fun.
And the teenagers, of course, really enjoy being photographed while we're out.
Aren't they charming?
In addition to our zoo field trip, we also had another field trip with other homeschoolers this week, but I'll need a separate post to share all those pictures.
This post may be linked up at these linky parties.
