This year they both have grown to enjoy reading and learning even more! Ej is just about all caught up to Josiah in every subject...they have learned long division and multiplication, composed an outline, a works cited, hand written and typed a research paper. They took typing, piano, art, soccer. We learned about Animals, Plants & the Solar System. We still love reading Life of Fred tougher. We are still using the Harrow Family cd's with Sonlight to memorize verses. We always record them and share them with MiMi and Poppe.
We have had some good discussions about deeper issues of the World Wars in an engaging way with my 10 and 8 year old. After we completed the study of the World Wars ourselves, I caught Evie Joy re-teaching this book to her stuffed animals for fun. She said she likes that it is easy to read, interesting and has lots of pictures! She was teaching them about the "4 dark years" and how people today still remember those who lost their lives during the World Wars.
We enjoy reading with Daddy every night. He does a read aloud and Bible with us before bed. WE love how he does all the character voices.
We've enjoyed learning how to play with other expat friends...games like hole with soccer and pirate with basketball and cops and robbers and Marco polo at the playground.
We like to have read aloud time with Mommy during nap time.. Sometimes we call it sip and read and have some tea with her.
We've grown to enjoy lots of games like Monopoly, Yatzee, Ticket to Ride, Chess, Checkers.
We enjoy riding our bikes, roller blading and riding our scooter around our complex.
We are trying to learn how to do some basic moves like cartwheels and skateboarding.
