Winter is in the Air and in School

Ah...back to our regularly scheduled programming...lol...we needed it, I needed it, they needed it!  Not too many complaints or whines today.

 I made a new rule, if you ask "when is school over" or "how much work do we have left" then I tack on 10 more mins of school work that day! 


Zachary never ceases to amaze me on what he can put together with Legos, almost blindfolded..


Sammie loves those daubers, but what you did not see is about 10 mins
after this picture, she had the ink all over her face, arms and hands..she is 
banned from them for a while.. 8(



What we are reading...Studying WINTER this month...



Tool time...


Serious student...



We started our Time Unit today.


Part of our Winter Unit - we are studying the complex science of Snowflakes...
WOW - so much to learn...Bought this book over the weekend at
Barnes & Noble - Clearance Rack...




Little break for the Wii Sports...Bowling



Started our Little Passports Geography Curriculum. I have had it
since September but needed to wait until we were less busy with
Holidays...So cute and fun!


Brazil was our 1st country...





Off to Ballet and then Gym class...

Although we have zero snow, it's cold cold cold here in NY today!

Hey!
It's Lori from Cachey Mama's Classroom. Thanks for following! I love your blog and you have a beautiful family. The winter books you posted look amazing, I will have to check them out. I have also been wanting to get the book Stranger in the Woods. Will grab your button for my blog love page. Would you like to be listed under teacher-related or mommy blog section? Maybe I should just start a new category for homeschooling.. what do you think. Let me know and thanks for all the great ideas!

I just may have to apply your new rule to our school as well. I get that all the time.

Looks like you're off to a great start back, aside from the paint dauber incident! Love your pictures!
