I have the pleasure of teaching the 4 and 5 year olds in our homeschool
co-op for this semester. Once a week, I'm teaching them history in a
fun way. We're going back in time and doing things they way they used to
do them. I'm using the "My First Little House" book series, which
takes stories out of the chapter books and makes it into picture books.

Although I planned this session, it wasn't me who carried it out (I was being of help elsewhere). Thus, I have no action shots. But, the kids built houses out of Lincoln Logs, ran their fingers through fodder and packed up the wagon with blocks and moved their family.
I did make it back in time for our oatmeal meal. At the beginning, the 13 kiddos needed a lot of adult support to set the table, prepare the meal, pass the dishes and tidy up. I'm so happy to say that the adult support needed to execute the meal is so small compared to before.
thank you for not showing the faces of these children...so many weirdos out there. Love the bonnets!ReplyDelete
