Some might say I am cheating in our art lessons by having the boys trace their work but since neither boy enjoys drawing (mine in particular), I try to get the boys to enjoy a new technique and not obsess over their lack of drawing skills, as that is a huge issue for both boys. This way they are more happy with the results and we can enjoy the process better!
For history we are entering the 100 years of Exploration. I am still getting a few books from the library as I want to delve a bit deeper into the explorer lives than the history book that we have does and even Crash Course World history skims over this more that I like. We are currently on unit 4 of World History Crash Course.
As we read about a explorer we are adding their route to our huge world map in the school room
Next week is spring break for my daughter from Public school so I will be taking the week off from blogging to enjoy some time with her and MarioFan.
