Field Trip

He went on a field trip to LEGOLAND.  He got to play, build, interact, and see how they were made.

Then he went to the Rainforest Café where he got to eat in the "forest" and see lots of different "animals" that live there.

Then he had a little playtime to relax and interact.

Playing "Store" to help kids understand the concept of money.

Today we worked on Zennan understanding the concept of money and how it works.   He was given fake money to buy toys which consisted of one $10 bill, one $5 bill, and four $1 bills.  Each time he picked a toy it cost something that needed him to use a certain combination of bills such as $7, $12, $17.  He had fun and got a better understanding of how to use his addition skills while handling money.



He read at the library today.
- Flap Your Wings
- Fox in Socks
- Simon's Bug (Primary Science Topic: Insects)
- Lady and the Tramp


Then he sat down to listen to story time.
Before long he made his way to the front!
He couldn't help, but to share his thoughts !
Then they all made birdfeeders.

Free Piano Lessons for Homeschoolers

Hoffman Academy, which was originally Free Piano Lessons For Kids, is a completely free piano lesson tutorial on youtube.  It is a great way to enrich your child's life with music at a minimal cost.

There is a surplus of pianos practically given away all over the internet.  We purchased ours for a measly $25!  A lot of people just no longer have the space for them.

Mr. Hoffman is the teacher on Hoffman Academy.  He goes step by step and breaks everything down for kids.  His lessons are fairly simple and fun!  We include a few short lessons at the end of each homeschooling day.  It works well for us.  My 5.3 yo son is currently on lesson 35 and we made a little mash up of him practicing his lessons below!

the following link is for Hoffman Academy on Youtube
