Final Day: Robots!

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

Today was the last day or our robot theme.  The boys definitely responded better to the robot theme, than they did to last weeks summer theme. 

My goal for each theme is to finish each week with a project of some sort.  Some weeks it may be a craft, others a book or a lapbook, or maybe just something that is a lot of fun.  This week we went with a fun project.  We created robots made out of our recyclable materials.  Thing 1 absolutely loved this.  He has constantly been playing with his robot and the robot that Daddy Cameron made. 

Our supplies:

Thing 1 and I also did a little bit of “work” today.  We worked on our sight words, {I, can, me, you} and I introduced fractions.  Since Thing 2 was sleeping during school today, Thing 1 and I were able to finish school quickly, so that he could get back to playing with his robot.

Working on our robot fractions:

Lastly, here is a picture of our bulletin board with this weeks work on it.  It doesn’t look like much, because we used sheet protectors and dry erase boards, because the boys love it.  So a lot of our work was erased.  I guess in the future, I can hang the stuff the last time that we use it.
