Strassner Academy: Week 5

We had such a fun week!  We spent the whole week absolutely loving our Noah's ark theme.  Here are a few of the highlights:

We built paper arks, 

and lovingly, painstakingly selected animals to walk two-by-two into the it. 

We did shaving cream letters

and spelling practice.

We made THE COOLEST rainbow playdough EVER.

I like this photo, largely due to the liquid starch, food coloring and coffee cup all coexisting right there in the same space.  Somehow, this accurately reflects my life!

Eventually, all those individual colors began to combine.  But in the mean time, this activity was a total hit!

Leah built a model of an animal cell out of a paper plate, including nucleus, cytoplasm, vacuole, mitochondria, cell membrane and golgi bodies to go along with our CC memory work. 

We marched and practiced keeping a steady beat. 

Logan started gymnastics last week, and Leah is hard at work back at ballet, and that has been really fun for both of them.  

We also have been taking advantage of that fact that, with kids back in school, our local parks are ours for the taking!

This week, we went to Subway and picnic-ed at a park we've never been to before.

These spontaneous little adventures are a huge part of what I love about homeschooling.
