Oops- MFW weeks 5,6,7...

Whoopsies-been a busy few weeks!  We spent these weeks learning about fallish type things like trees and leaves, pumpkins and the seasons.  We went to a friend's house and did a special study on Columbus Day.  The kids loved learning with their friends.  And then of course, we have continued co-op this month.  I am assistant teacher for October so it's been fun to be a part of class with them this month.  A new thing we have started doing is memorizing a bible verse each week.  Adler also uses the verse for copy work.  I am so amazed and proud of both the kids at how quickly they are memorizing scripture and also how they are applying it.  They both are sure to point out when they use their "honeycomb words" (pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.  proverbs 16:24).  This week we are using as a review week to reinforce some things we have been working on the past 7 weeks.  I can't believe we have been in school almost 8 weeks!  They are doing so well and we are all three really enjoying it.  Here is a glimpse of some of the things we have done!
Counting chips for his number of the day
They counted to 100 before they got bored trying to figure out how many cubes the schoolroom was long

More math

And more many different ways to separate the animal counters.  My favorite thing about math so far is how practical and hands on it has been!


And school with friends
This is pizza, just forgot to take a picture of them making it.   Hazel was learning the letter "p" so we stayed in pajamas, made pizza for lunch, pancakes for dinner and painted pumpkins:).

And finally, a little study on pumpkins!  We did pumpkin activities in co-op, learned about them at home and also went to a pumpkin patch!
