Week 15 -- What's in our Boxes?

Well to start out our week 15 we have snow!! 9 inches of it!! You can tell we are in the mtns this week! Started Friday late. Kevin and the kids was placing Christmas lights up Saturday, we expect about 2 more inches before Tuesday. The kids love the snow, however they do not like the fact that the neighbors get out of school and we don't :) just one of those homeschool things!!


And of course the kids played out in the snow ALL weekend long, Saturday morning they went out at 8am! What can I say they were eager!


There wasn't much Saturday at 8 but it was coming!!





Ok about school this week!! Today is Monday and its 15 degrees outside feels like -9!!! So inside we will stay all day!! We have 2 more weeks left to complete before our Christmas Break, our Christmas break is 2 weeks long. However this morning Zachary and Alexis had a smart mouth so before they could even go to their desk to start on their workboxes, they had to write sentences saying " I will not back talk my mother." After that they went to start their week!

Animal Unit Study(8 week study) - We have been learning how to classify animals. We also pick 3 animals 3 times a week(yes total of 9) and learn about them. We have been making little booklets of each of our animals on habitat, classifying on if it is a mammal or what... etc. We have had fun with this!
