Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

Please feel free to follow along....

Jamestown, The Arch, and Meatball Stew

Our main focus for History this week was the Jamestown settlement in Virginia. We learned more about Captain John Smith, Pocahontas, and the Powhattan Indians. We read books about it, watched videos, and made a small model of a wigwam.

Cut 5 strips from a cereal box and staple them together into a dome.
Tear pieces of construction paper and glue onto the dome.

After the glue dries, cut out a door.
For Science this week, we learned about Mammals.

On Wednesday, we visited the "Gateway to the West" after another doctor appointment for EL. Then, also stopped by to visit with my parents for awhile:

And, one night for supper, the kids helped chop vegetables and mix everything into a crockpot for meatball stew:
