I’m just going to do our weekly update for our final two weeks of the semester in one shot. Things are getting busy around here these days. We’ve been enjoying meeting new homeschooling friends, play dates, and parties. We’re pretty much just enjoying all that homeschooling has to offer to the fullest.
I’m so excited to bring another semester to a close and have a few weeks to regroup before we get started on the final semester of the year. It’s so thrilling to see all that we’ve accomplished so far. It’s goes by so fast and it’s so hard for me to believe that before long we will be completing our third homeschooling year!
This is what we’ve got going on for our last two weeks:

She’s proud to have finished the first Explode the Code book.
In math Elliot has been learning about calculating the perimeter of triangles and rectangles. He asked me how you could measure a circle so we came up with this idea. We found some string and cut it to go around a circle we wanted to measure.
In addition to the circumference, we also determined the diameter. These things were not in my plan for the day, but they were taught nonetheless! It’s really fun when he initiates a new concept just by being curious about something.
