Our balloon solar system =)  Oh yeah, and we do wear costumes to school sometimes too!


Counting Money

We use real money to count with but the bills in the register are fake because Sarah put them in there =)


Noodle and Paperclip Art

Stephen's is our family....the Fab Five =)

Sarah's is the burning bush =)

Jonathan's is 3 crosses during Jesus's death =)

Their job was to come up with anything they wanted too.  I enjoyed this activity and they did too.

Inside Sarah's Folder (1st grade)

This is our first week using our folders.  I think the 8 included in the folder will be enough for us since we're doing several subjects together this year.
1 (Math)
2 (Writing)
3 (Phonics)
4 (Reading)
5 (Music)
6 (Alphabet)
7 (her fun one today- Tag book)
8 (Spelling)
After she's done with each folder, she takes the number and adds it to her "I'm done" chart.  I want to add some chores into the chart too I think.

I've already gotten lots of great responses and we're only on day 2!  "Mom, I love school this year!"  =)

Folder System

I first saw this system over here.  I totally loved it and she even has the cards you can print out too!  Here are the kids' folders.
This is my folder where I put our daily assigments by child.

Sequential Spelling

We decided to go ahead and add in some spelling.  Both boys are using Sequential Spelling.  It's easy so far but the words get much harder.  They like doing it with the dvd and I like it because they can do it somewhat independently.  She talks a little different than we do so I have to translate sometimes though =)
