English: Billy finished his work on the "Seussology" unit - he used Kid Pix to create an advertisement for the "Fox in Socks & Knox in Box" stage show. Lots of reading each night as well.
Maths: MEP lessons (73-75). One more week and we'll be finished the first half of the Year 1 book.
Science & Technology: We went on an excursion with some other homeschooling families to a local zoo where we got to learn about monkeys & dingos, pat the wombat & koalas, feed & pat the kangaroos,
and for those feeling brave enough:
(It gave me the creeps to even take the photo, no way was I doing it!)
HSIE (Human Society and it's environment): We finally got to start the Aboriginal unit. Firstly I "mind-mapped" the things he could tell me about Aborigines already, then we looked at where they lived in the local area, and read a couple of dreamtime stories.
Creative & Practical Arts: Drama class.
LOTE (Languages other than English): Introductions in Spanish - eg "what is your name?", "my name is Billy".
PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education): Auskick training and circus class, plus lots of playing with his friends at the zoo's playground.
Life skills (cooking, gardening, housekeeping): He rolled out & cut biscuit (cookie) dough to make biscuits to take to Joeys and for Mother's Day. He knitted a little square for me for Mother's Day (no idea what I'll do with it, but it's the thought that counts!)
