Calling all you cowboys and cowgirls! Who says school can’t be fun?! 🙂 We started our week off at co-op with a Legend of Lightning Larry play and some lemonade tasting! Here is our finished lapbook: This is a double lapbook (two file folders glued together). This is the first folder. Inside the Books I […]
One of the lessons in the Five in a Row Volume IV manual for Albert (a book we recently did a unit study on), is to make your own comic. Here is Elijah’s! Runny Babbit was taking a walk. He meets a few munny fonsters. But it was really just his friends! If you want […]
As we rowed Albert, Elijah completed a backyard bird notebook. We still have one more bird to add, but I thought I would go ahead and post pictures! 🙂 COVER PAGE CARDINAL ROBIN BLUE JAY MOURNING DOVE GOLDFINCH General Bird Information Page Many of the printables for this lap ~n~ notebook came from Homeschool Share.

What do I know? Our camera was only mostly dead. So, we took it to Miracle Max, gave it a chocolate coated pill, and poof- it’s back among the land of the living (mostly living that is). It isn’t doing great, but it’s better than no camera at all. The poor mostly alive camera was […]
This really was a great unit for us. We were able to discuss creation, the fall of man, the effects of sin, and the flood while learning about dinosaurs at the same time! Cover Page (thanks Marie for the photo!) This lapbook is two file folders glued side by side. Here is the first folder: Here […]
I am so behind in blogging all of our FIAR adventures (and our delight-directed studies such as Insects and Tigers…maybe I can get those posted soon!). Here are a few pictures of our Daniel’s Duck co-op. We met at a local park, and we toured a REAL log cabin! We are going to follow up this […]
This week (and next) we are learning all about dinosaurs. Elijah spent over five hours digging out these bones! He is convinced that he will be a paleontologist.
After we rowed Little Nino’s Pizzeria, we went to a local pizza place with co-op and we…MADE PIZZA! Then we made pizza at home (Simon is beoming quite the pizza maker — if you like lots of mushrooms, that is). Every time we make pizza, Elijah wants to call it Little Nino’s Pizzeria Night.
Who Owns the Sun? is a FIAR Volume I selection. It is a story of a boy who asks his dad a series of questions…"Who owns the sun? Who owns the wind? Who owns the rain?"…and on he goes. The wise father always replies that no man can own these things, and the wise son […]
We weren’t sure what to do with the cover. We weren’t sure what to do with all his valentines…so we pasted the valentines to the cover of the lapbook! We added more to the backside. Inside of the book ~ Elijah did a handwriting book of Valentine words. We learned about the Lifecycle of the […]

Some of these pictures are a bit blurry (still not sure about my camera). Elijah made the front cover on Jan Brett’s website and Jason sized it and printed it for us. Book as first opened. Candy house on the left shown open below: Elijah wanted to put a gingerbread "baby" in his house instead […]
Let’s make a mess cookies!
Listening to the story. To the kitchen to learn how gingerbread was made long ago; she even showed them how the spices (nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves) were grated and ground. Let’s check the oven and see if the Gingerbread Man is ready to eat. He’s missing! Run, run as fast as you can and […]
This was a rather simple lapbook for us. I purchased the kit from HOAC, and while I really liked the components, they were just too old for ds (6). We will try it again if we come back around to this book. On the first day of our week, we went to a quilt museum […]
Here is Elijah working on our Lamington. Here he is ready for tea-time (Yes! He is STILL in his pajamas!) The purpose of tea-time is to work on manners…do you think I’m succeeding? Oh, and if you are wondering what a Lamington is, it’s an Australian treat! Here is an authentic recipe (ours is OH-so-fake […]
Front Cover (Elijah thinks wombats are so cute; he wants to go to Australia to get one.) Inside of the book. At the top center are two layer books. One is about wombats and the other is about the platypus. The wombat in the center is an Enchanted Learning Print-out (polk-a-dots by Elijah). Who Am I? Game […]
Another fun book this week! (You’ve got me figured out…I only homeschool because it is a BLAST!) 🙂 Okay, so we’ve read Wombat Stew about a hundred bazillion times. Elijah loves it. We got together with a friend at the beginning of the week to make WOMBAT STEW! 🙂 Ingredients: water = cool whip colored […]
For one of the lessons at co-op, we learned about Paul Revere and his family. The Revere children would have had to make their own toys, so we made a toy– a cornhusk doll. We also learned about the famous ride (according to the poem) and mapped the route. We made our map look old using tea […]
