I love photography! I've been fortunate enough to have been able to use it in photo-journalism and love using it to record our homeschool adventures. I've been using my iphone a lot lately as it is so easy to carry! I found a new app this week called: Filter Mania2 - I've had such fun playing with it I just had to share it with you.
(And guess what? It's FREE)
Check out some of the different looks you can get from the same photo:
Have you heard of Kahn Academy? Free lessons online- well, my oldest is learning Algebra for free! They have science, physics, math - video learning. (They are not a Christian company - so you may want to supervise to make sure you are comfortable with it) I love the math! I am NOT a math girl - I'm a writer! It is such a relief to know that I have this for backup - for free!
Evidently it's FROG season in Southwest Florida! The boys are in heaven. The frogs. . . not so much.
Homemade "Frog habitat" by the littles:
I'm wondering what happened to the art supplies that used to inhabit this box of theirs????? Never a dull moment around here!
Field trip to the pool! We have started a new "fitness- health and nutrition" series this week. The boys are learning about WHY we need to move our bodies with regular exercise and what our bodies need to grow healthy and strong.
(Um, yes-it does correlate with my HealthyMomSeries)
Looking forward to our park days with the homeschool group - today we just couldn't make it!
Because the boys are so excited about all the frogs in our area right now - I will defer from our curriculum plan which calls for study of the Whales (Apologia - Swimming Creatures). We will go ahead and expand this theme to find out about what other kinds of frogs live in places around the world. I'm thinking a little rain forest investigation is in order!
*Don't let your curriculum - or anything else - dictate to you what to study in your homeschool. Use it as a resource - not a ruler! Have fun by learning about topics your children love. (even if they are slimy) You can pull spelling words, vocabulary, science, bible, history, reading, math and anything you need to out of a topic like this! If they are excited about learning - RUN WITH IT!
