Making sure to keep things interesting and not a day in & day out workbook learning method I mix it up, a lot! If we cover 8 subjects in a day at the most half of those lessons will involve a work book. The other half I really want to make as hands on as possible including a bit of computer time, a lot of art, several books, artifacts when possible, actual experiences, field trips, outdoor time and games. To add to this though I plan 'workbook FREE days' and she loves these! This is when we do little games to experience our lessons and a lot of reading.
I thought I'd share in today's workbook free day. I took some photos of the 'work' she is doing today but along with this we have completed a puzzle on the United States, made play dough salmon, reviewed the salmon life cycle with materials we have, read a book on salmon, she finished up a poem she wrote,taught Hudson how to do a farm puzzle and observed a bird for her nature journal today. And, she has a fun art project planned for later. Here are some other items...
