School happens around here in all different sorts of ways. One Sunday afternoon after church, the boys were doing geometry without knowing it. They took these puzzle pieces and laid them out in different shapes, then challenged each other to form a cube. They were soon able to visualize if a pattern would work or not. Two of the big boys have been doing that in Math recently; their Math books called the shape the “net” of the solid form.
Esther saw this in a video online recently, so she demonstrated it for us. Take a saucer or plate of milk, and add drops of food coloring at random spots. Then, drop one drop of dish soap in the middle. It was incredible to watch the colors swirling and sort of boiling around on the plate!
We’ve been doing exercises together every morning lately. I learned awhile ago that some of my boys cannot touch their toes! They need to limber up, and I just need some exercise, so we do it this way, Here you can see Mr. Handyman and Mr. Inventor doing squats, and Mr. Imagination watching.
Little Miss loves helping her brothers with their school! Here, she is on Mr. Inventor’s shoulders.
