A new adventure!

We have taken on a new adventure recently and are having a ball so far.
It is a lot of work, but completely rewarding for both parties. We are home-schooling! We are in our 4th week now. 
The other day after journal time...I have to admit I peeked in their journals and read, "I want to learn more about the rainforest".  This was written by Baxter.  They woke up to a surprise on Monday morning: It's RAINFOREST WEEK! They are reading, writing, spelling all things Rainforest! 
This is called a unit study.

Video about schooling in 21st century

Great video to watch about schooling.

Fall Time Projects- Learning about Leaves and Trees.

Leaf collages
Glue and do!
Let them dry and display for Fall decor~
Nature Books are a great place to record all of the interesting things we've found.

The 3 of yall (Samuel is asleep right now) did leaf rubbings and labeled the NAME
of each tree the leaf was from then put that in your nature books.

Leaf Garland- traced leaves, cut out and then taped to a string.
