Current Readaloud: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
English: Lots of reading (mainly Aussie Bites) & audio books. We picked up a kid's thesaurus at a second hand book sale recently, so Pete showed him how to use that. He's been looking up random words in it. It was also a good review of nouns & verbs.
Languages other than English (LOTE): He's been practising his Spanish counting (1-10) again.
Maths: He watched Numbers Count which was about chance.
Science & Technology: We had a fun day of experiments early in the week. We blew up a balloon using yeast, (both on & off a bottle),
experimented with pepper & dishwashing liquid in a dish of water,
and last, but by no means least, we did a really cool one using drops of food colouring in milk. They stay static until you add dishwashing liquid - and then it goes insane!
He spent some time playing around on the Skwirk website.
HSIE (Human Society and it's environment): We had a discussion about Remembrance Day - what it is and what it commemorates. We've had brief discussions about WWI and WWII before but it's not something I'm going into depth with until he's older.
Creative & Practical Arts: He's had a creative week - he made sun prints and a nature collage at the homeschool meeting. He did a couple of paintings at his grandparent's house. He went to drama class.
PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education): Lots of playground time, swimming at the pool, playing with friends, circus class.
Life skills (cooking, gardening, housekeeping): Watering the garden, making chicken schnitzel, tidying his room. He had to do a task to help his family each day as part of his Joey's badge.
School shows: Numbers Count, Telling Tales, BTN.
Other fun stuff: It's been a social week! We had the homeschool meeting on Monday, a picnic at the playground and pool with other homeschoolers on Wednesday, he had a friend over on Wednesday afternoon and spent the weekend with his cousins.
At Joeys, they did teamwork activities as part of their caring & sharing badge. One of the games was funny - working in pairs, they had to unwrap a lolly (candy/sweet) wrapper - each boy could only use one hand though!
