Week in Homeschool #16

This week is our first week back after our long winter break.  A short week, a week of adjustment.
Or theme this week is

We each wrote something special that we'd like to accomplish in 2013 and tucked it into this New Year's Star box.  Next year we will look at our goals, and see how we did.

We read books from our "winter basket".  We have a few others, but those are waiting for specific themes in the near future.

The Snowman, by Raymond Briggs
The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats
The Gingerbread Man, illustrated by Bonnie and Bill Rutherford
Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen
In Winter,  by Jane Belk Moncure
Annie and the Wild Animals, by Jan Brett
Gingerbread Baby, by Jan Brett
Ten in the Bed, by Penny Dale
The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams Bianco
Winter Waits, by Lynn Ploudre
Winter Song, by William Shakespeare

Our letter of the week:
D,L,N Review
Our Poem of the Month:


Our Snack of the week:

In Art study we explored:
 Saint Eustace, by Albrecht Durer.

In the Kitchen we made:
Russian Tea Cakes, aka Snowball cookies

In Art we created: 
  Watercolor, and salt winter scenes.

In Math:

We didn't cover Science, or History this week, and that's just fine .   This was a week that was all about finding our rhythm, and drinking tea.  I imagine that next week will be much the same.

There was a little bit more that I wanted to add to this post, but frankly, blogger is really bothering me today.  So.  There it is.

I really appreciate that you take the time to post about your weeks...I always learn a thing or two. Your weeks are so beautiful. I love everything about this one...the books, the art, everything.
