While I try to be very purposeful in planning lessons for my children, I find that so much of their learning consists of what they come up with on their own!
Today, since it is Good Friday, we aren't doing much for formal school. We finished up our book on World War I this morning, and read the poem "In Flander's Fields" by John McCrae about one of the battlefields. My 13 year old, Andrew, has been doing his on-line math lessons, but everyone else is doing other things right now.
Our largest aquarium out of several -- these are baby convict cichlids that hatched from eggs a few weeks ago.
Andrew, our 8th grader, making a green screen to use in video production
And with the web cam, with the green screen in the background.
A screen shot of a video in which he cloned himself using video effects.
I guess that is one of the beauties of home schooling --
the kids have time to learn things for themselves without me even assigning it!
