Ronni and I have been working on number recognition lately. She can count to 12 but she doesn't know what the numbers look like so that has been fun! :) It's not as fun for her as it was for Collin so our sessions are much shorter for her. She's only 3 so I don't want to teach the fun of learning out of her. We make it fun and when she's tired we do something else.
Here are some pictures of a few of our projects.
These are from history....
|When studying the Netherlands we built a dike. The water is on the right side of the dike.|
|Then we built a canal to go with the dike.|
|This is Collin's diorama of The Great Reef off the coast of Australia from when we studied Australia. ;)|
|We've been studying plants and how they get nutrition so, of course, we had to do this classic science experiment. We ended up with a blue and red daisy. :)|
|Collin pouring white vinegar into a jar.|
|Ronni placing a chicken bone into the jar.|
|Two weeks later - Collin demonstrating what happens when calcium is sucked out of the bone. (Obviously, this was when we were learning about the body and on the topic of bones.)|
