M1, who is now Doodlebug for this blog's intents and purposes (I dunno... I'm just tired of referring to him by something that doesn't even remotely resemble a name, even if it does contain an initial, and I do call him Doodlebug at home on a regular basis), really enjoyed the code project. This is my child who is more naturally drawn to codes and ciphers and spy equipment at the store. M2, who is now Boo (because we started by calling her Beangirl, then Tinkerbean, then Tinkerboo, and now just Boo), enjoyed parts of it.
This week, however, instead of doing the next project on the list, I decided we'd do the homophone mini-book. We started making a homophone list on Monday and worked on it until Thursday. It's nowhere near comprehensive (at dinner tonight we realized steak/stake wasn't on the board... guess what our main dish was?), but we got about 60 sets of homophones.
|That's a lot of homophones|
Doodlebug let me photograph his.
|Yes, son, toe jam IS stinky.|
In the next day or so, I'll post our history lesson for this week. There won't be one for next week; we take Labor Day week as a break from school - our first break this year! The kids are excited, and so am I. It's time for some relaxation - as if that'll really happen. But it'll be nice to change up the schedule for a bit and relax.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
