HOMESCHOOL: July in Review

We started homeschooling earlier than normal this year in anticipation of some time off when our third child arrives near the end of September! Here are some of the fun activities that we did during the month of July!

first day of school Well I forgot to take a picture of my daughter on her first day of school… So we reenacted the day about two weeks late!
Making Buttermilk biscuits We will be learning how to cook as our life skill for this year. My daughter’s first cooking class was learning to make buttermilk biscuits for her daddy! She was so excited to wake up early on a Sunday morning and make this for her dad, while he slept in bed!
Making Buttermilk Biscuits We even made some biscuits in the shape of hearts… just for daddy!
Learning to sew This year our handicraft will be learning how to sew! Here you can see my daughter practicing straight stitching in a line on a scrap piece of plaid material, perfect for practicing straight lines!
preschool We can’t forget about my three year old who is having fun ‘playing school’ while learning her alphabet!
violin lessons My seven year old is so excited to be learning to play the violin. We found a wonderful self-taught curriculum at a homeschool convention. She has been wanting to learn for years!
Israel salt dough map This year we are using Simply Charlotte Mason Joshua – Malachi & Ancient Greece for our Bible, History & Geography. Here you can see we made a salt dough map of Israel and are learning about the 12 tribes, their locations and so much more!
phonics & reading This year we decided to try a new reading program, Simply Charlotte Mason’s Hymns in Prose. We have been delightfully surprised by how much our daughter enjoys these lessons and how well she is relating and applying her lessons to the real world! I am amazed at many of the words she is learning that I myself may not be aware of!
learning about meteorites This year we are again using God’s Design for our science curriculum. Here the girls had a blast dropping marbles on our pretend city and learning about meteorites and craters.

What fun things have you been doing with your homeschool? We would love to hear about them in the comments below!
