I decided to stick with the theme we've had going and talk about culture again. Aidan is so proud of what he has been working on. We've been focusing on ways to show what you've learned. He drew a great picture of a family living in a sod house with the cook fire outside. He also completed an amazing web.
The credit for having him do a web goes exclusively to Tim. I thought it was a crazy idea. A whole culture on one small piece of paper? Too much for a 6 year old. Too much writing. Not enough space. I was admittedly skeptical!
I should trust him. He's been doing this whole teaching thing for awhile.
I made up a blank web with labels for each of the components of culture and then a bubble for the number of facts I wanted included for each category.
Right up until the moment he started I was doubtful.
Not only should I trust Tim, I should trust Aidan. Those bubbles did not scare him one little bit. Why, in fact they were perfect for drawing small pictures instead of trying to write tiny words.
I mostly just sat dumbfounded while he filled everything in.
Trust the child, Heidi.
Aidan has had a great week. His focus has come far since the start of the school year and we have worked out a lot of little kinks in the timing of our day. If you missed last weeks HHR post, be sure to read last week's introduction to our culture work and our midweek recipe update!
So what have you been up to this week? We would love to have you join the HHR by adding a post to your blog and linking back here. Don't forget to add your blog address to MckLinky so that we can come visit you!
