homeschool wrap-up: march!

teepee making!

Anasazi adobe villages!

the finale to our unit! a Native American feast! fry bread, blueberry soup, jerky, hominy and squash stew, fried fish, and fresh honey!

cutest Indians ever.

we stopped on the way home from our antiquing weekend at the Caddo Mounds in Alto, TX.
they had a wonderful interactive display for the kids, a movie, and of course, the actual mounds to walk around!
a wonderful hands-on for our unit!

a great end to our unit!

we had a big month in cc too!
kicked it off with a joint field day with another cc group!

mozart this week.

we are a couple weeks from finishing our cc year and this day was cc spirit day! so crazy clothes it was! this is as crazy as we get :)

we've been doing a poetry tea-time once a week at the suggestion of a few fellow homeschooling friends.
we have chamomile tea, treats, and read simple (for now) poems while the boys listen quietly.
it's been a huge hit!
a great month!

  1. Will you continue to home school throughout the summer? If so, how much-same times/days/week? Or just a once in a while thing? Is this when you do more travel to exhibits/zoos/museums?
