We did a little unit about Picasso which does not do the artist justice but it was all we had and every little bit counts. Now I bet when they see his work out in real life they will know recognize it and now a little about this interesting artist. Following is a snapshot with of some of our projects in it.
We have been taking a break from doing our nature notebooks as well as taking a break from other lessons so we can wrap up the subjects with material still remaining and get ready for year 4. But the boys did have a very sad afternoon last week that I wanted to share with you. Zak one of my twins came inside after having been in the yard with his brothers and he was crying and sobbing and very very upset. He told me he had accidentally stepped on the little nest of baby birds that they had only just discovered the day before. The nest was in the grass on the ground and vey well hidden. So we learned the camouflage has it's down sides. Zak was devastated and did his best to bury the little dead bird. However not all the chicks were hurt and we managed to save one. Here is it's picture.
Doesn't he have the cutest little eyebrows?
Well we are done with year 3 and already midway through our first week of year 4 knee deep in Tales from Shakespeare, Visual Latin, Paddle to the Sea, Stories from the Middle Ages, the map of Europe and more. Below is Max doing a map drill with our enlarged old style map of Europe from Homeschool in the Woods.
Thanks for dropping by....see you soon with more updates of our home education journey.
