HSMJ - An Elctrifying Week

In my life this week…
It's been a productive week and today (Thursday) I started seeing a twinkling of what excites Sir N in learning.  I am really keen to get some Delight Directed learning happening around here. I have also managed to go to be a little earlier than I was last week.  Last week I spent far too much time on here and not in my bed sleeping.

In our home school this week…

  1. Picnic at the park
  2. Science experiment with the sun.
  3. Playing with a Van De Graaff Generator
  4. Space Lego creation
  5. Rocket picture (ABeka Art)
  6. TouchMath
  7. Morning tea with Daddy in our new vegetable patch
  8. Practicing math facts with Math Rider.

    Yes you are.  I have started a new link up on Tuesdays.  We all have the most amazing books that we discover at the library, bookshop, curriculum fairs and op shops.  If you blog about them please come and link up on Tuesdays with Tuesday's Treasures so we can have a place to discover some new treasures for our families.

    2. I just found several links I needed to visit. Thanks! I am also definitely Bookus Collectus. My husband was recently overheard saying, "She bought more bookshelves. Don't know where we're going to put them..."

    3. Oh, I have been getting up super early for some Mom Time too! It makes our days go so much smoother when I have had the time to get the house work going or animals tended too and a slow, quiet breakfast for me. Calming and centering! Of course it means I've been going to bed much earlier, but.

      1. Yes I love the sound of silence when I get up the hardest part is going to bed early enough . . .

    6. Thank you so much for linking to my little scribble, Chareen! You are always so kind and generous!

      I'm interested in all that you're doing - the photo diary and Tuesday's Treasures, etc. It would also be good to see how you plan everything. You do so many wonderful things that I'd love to see how you organise and decide what to include.

      Thanks for all the ideas and links!

      God bless, Chareen:-)

    7. Yup, getting up early is so important in this house too. If I don't get up with my husband (5am) then I feel like I'm playing catch up all day. Of course there are days when one simply MUST stay in bed....!

      1. I hate feeling like I'm behind all day. Getting up early is good but now I need to start going to bed early. Energy gets depleted long before my day is done.

        I agree I had a day like that last week and was in bed till ... dare I say it 9 am :)

      1. Most of these can be done at home. All you need is a piece of real wool blanket :) and a plastic rod or balloon.
