Week #5 Whew!

This week seemed really long. It wasn't just me, the kids keep saying they are tired too. Next week I have 'Fall Break' scheduled on Thursday and Friday. It can't get here soon enough. Ok, what have we done. Let's shorten this. The kids worked on in their LA, Reading and Math books and it's all good.

History~We read about Leif the Lucky and Vinland from several sources and made Viking shields.

Science~We continued working with cells and plants. We also spent a day on chemistry studying filtration, mixtures and evaporation. We mixed salt and sand in water.

We filtered it and low and behold the sand came out, but where's the salt? Look, it was there all the time.

We skipped ahead to Week #6 of our Weefolkart Harvest Time pre-school curriculum to read about Johnny Appleseed and apples in general. That's because we took a field trip to the orchard on Thursday. No pictures of the actual apple picking because older dd had my camera for her college lab class.

To finish the unit we made apple prints on fabric squares I hope to turn into a lap quilt. We'll see how that goes.

Fun apple activities. We go apple picking in about a month. I should get something together for it. LOL. I'm usually lame. Pick apples. Eat apples. That is about as far as I get. :-p

I'm loving all the apple activities I am seeing. Now to get some done in our school.

Ooh! I can't wait to do some of Harvest Time. It's still so hot here though that I can't bring myself to study Fall things yet!
