Views From Our Homeschool This Week

Knobless Cylinders- which just came on Monday. Kylee spontaneously presented these to herself. Tim and I were sitting on the couch watching and she was totally oblivious to us... in complete concentration. We were wishing for a video camera, but settled for a snapshot!

Caleb reviewed 10s and numbers to 100 this week. I think we will conquer the 100 board next week. It will be a new work for him and a good challenge!

Aidan is hiding behind our Timeline of Ancient History. This will be a year long project. I love seeing the kids take history topics into their playtime and last night Aidan built the Wall of Jericho in his bedroom with some building toys. We have a bunch of the Playmobile Ancient Egyptian play sets and I think they will be finding whole new meaning in a week or two!

Love your timeline! Is that a standard tri fold project board? It looks bigger.

Kylie if you look back at our house tour pictures, you will see that one of bookshelves is missing the fake cardboard back where my DH's electronics cords are all coming through. I saved the back for our timeline.

Heidi, silly question why do those cylinders have knobs on them if they are 'knobless'. I've never heard or encountered knobless cylinders before but it seemed a misnomer.

Also, I really enjoyed your less is more post. I struggle with being happy with doing less, too. But yet I see it as a desire of my heart.

Angie you are absolutely correct! What a silly mistake on my part. Those are indeed the knobbed cylinders. The knobless cylinders are, however, a real deal. They come in four sets and are colored. In last weeks homeschool update there is a photo of Kylee stacking the green ones.

I can't wait to read all your posts on the timeline. They will come in handy when Bear is ready for the Great Lessons.
