Week in Homeschool #14

 Here's what our fourteenth week of homeschool looked like.  11.12- 11.16

Our theme of the week was Thanksgiving

We read:
Sarah Morton's Day, Samuel Eaton's Day, and Tapenum's Day.  My children love all three of these photographic day in the life of pilgrim, and native children of the year 1627.

Our letter of the week:

In Art Study we explored:

Raven Addressing the Assembled Animals c. 1590

In Science:
We explored (played with) cranberries!

In Math:



In our Nature Journals:
Used a pile of delicata squash, small pumpkins, and decorative gourds as his inspiration. 
Here he grouped an avocado, apple, and pomegranate and painted their shadows on the table as well. 

Ava had an explosive week in her nature journal.  She tried a few different techniques, with results she was very proud of. 
she grouped a pomegranate, apple, and avocado and painted their shadows.
She painted our hearth, although she didn't finish
 this is a lily from a flower bouquet
 and she rounded off her week with this flower bouquet

This was our last full week of homeschool before our winter break.
We had family travel from out of state to spend the holiday with.
We had a fantastic time.
