Collage Faces

Standard

I recently saw a post on Pinterest (don’t know where) about how to make faces using collage art. We used photos of the girls faces, cut out their eyes, nose and mouth and glue them on a face they had drawn. The effect was quite good! They also traced their hands and glued them on to their picture as well. 


In the morning, we attended homeschool group and the kids played with their friends while the grown-ups drank coffee and chatted. Then the girls went for a play- date and I chilled with little man! Overall, it was a lovely day!

Rainbow RiceĀ 

Standard

It was a lovely day today so we spent some time outside playing with worms!


Today we also made rainbow rice! It was lovely and dead simple! Just add a splurge of ready-mixed paint, some peppermint essence and leave to dry!

We also did some maths with the new curriculum I’ve ordered called: Maths! No Problem.  Lady P is enjoying it as it’s based on Singapore Maths. I really like it and find it straight forward and easy to use.

 

 

Tens Frames and Farm Life

Standard

I just discovered Singapore maths and so far, I love the concept and it’s transformed Lady P! She is making great connections! I just bought the first textbook and workbook from Maths! No Problem! so I will let you know how they are and review them here! 

Lady P used the tens frame in helping her understand addition facts. She made the connection between 8+6 and 10+4 by moving two different coloured counters around. I watched various YouTube videos by Maths! No Problem and found them interesting! 

In the afternoon, we went on a homeschool trip to the farm! Over 130 home ed people showed up so it was great support!

The kids had a great time and enjoyed being outside all afternoon! They got a chance to brush ponies, feed goats, pet snakes and rats, feed lambs and play with new friends! It was a wonderful day!
