It's been a rough 2 weeks here at The Circus! We've been battling colds that hit 2 out of 4 kids and then hit the other 2 the following week.
Depending on the week and the child, we did get some school completed.
These past two weeks we've been studying Britain and Churchill during World War II.
Some of this weeks' readings:
|Select readings about WWII|
It was a great week to do some video schooling as well. We watched Battle of Britain, Bonhoeffer, The Hiding Place and Citizen Kane.
When they were feeling up to it, the boys started work on the Battleship USS Arizona and on wooden 'Bomber' kits from Consumer Crafts.
|Close up of the Arizona. It's put together, but needs paint!|
|Assembling the wooden bombers. We find that using a glue gun works better than nails!|
|Assembled and camouflage outlines drawn. Next, we need to paint!|
|American Girl Molly|
As for my daughter, I did a lot of reading aloud to her from the Molly American Girl book. We did spend some time on the matching aprons for her and her doll. For something that is not supposed to take long, this 'easy' project is taking forever. It took hours to do these straps for the aprons. She loves to sew and that makes this project worth it.
|Green Tree Frog|
Not to worry - all surfaces, hands and necks were well cleaned after Mr. Green's visiting!
Join us next week for The Holocaust and updates to our Modern History and American Girl lapbooks!
