The story begins with Laura describing where she lives. She describes her house, which is a log cabin. We built a log cabin. This actually was more difficult for Arin than expected, so it ended up being mom building a log cabin and that wasn't nearly as much fun as you might think. We bought skills sticks (popsicles sticks made for building) and followed the directions included to make a barn, which we called a cabin :)
Confessions of a Homeschooler. We started this curriculum by learning about Wisconsin. I read facts to Arin about the state, she colored a worksheet (included in the curriculum), located the state on a map, and learned the name of the capital.
Michelle for this idea :)
Arin drew a wolf, using the instructions found here.
I gave the girls a lesson in symmetry and Arin attempted her first symmetrical drawing.
And some times it just made sense to add a coloring page of the animal as the artwork for that page of the journal.
