We've started our final book of the year - Skylark. This is a fun follow-up to the book we read at the beginning of the year, Sarah Plain and Tall. We have had a slow start (personally) so we are playing catch-up a bit in our home lessons, which is fine with me. I love that this is a flexible curriculum and that the order of things we are learning is not so much of an issue. It allows us to take breaks when we need them and use the curriculum as it best suits our family. I don't want to be a slave to a curriculum, no matter how good it may be.
One of our first co-op lessons was on the Dust Bowl. What a difficult period of time for our country. And one of the challenging aspects is that many people who weren't living in that area really had no idea of how difficult it was for the people there. The entire country was working through the Depression.
For example, the shade to the right is the "shadow" color created by mixing yellow and purple. The children mixed the complementary colors to find the good shadow colors.
Finished wheel. Doesn't it look great?!
Can you guess what we had for a snack? Bet you can't - even with a picture. LOL
Bison burgers. They were delicious too. Not pictured is a fun ice cream treat that they also had to go along with it. As always a fun day and a great way to learn! I'm so thankful to be a part of this group!
