Homeschooling Monthly Memories - Apr 2012

Most of this month has been school holidays here in NSW (and in our household).  So while there's been a lot of learning, we're still not back in the swing of 'intentional learning' yet.


Kite making
Carrying the pack flag in the ANZAC Day march
Games learning countries & their flags

Other activities:

Started a new circus class
AFL season has started back up - with their team winning 2 out of 2 so far

It's been a big month of visits with friends including having a friend sleep over.  He also spent time with cousins from both sides of the family.
We farewelled friends who are about to travel Australia for an indefinite period of time.  This is the most awesome piece of play equipment I have ever seen in a free playground!!

Intentional Learning:

We travelled to Sydney Opera House to watch the Bell Shakespeare production of 'Macbeth'.

There's also been time spent 
  • coding
  • making videos with friends and editing with special effects (like reversing the film, slow motion etc)
  • more card tricks
  • lots of Minecraft, TF2, Portal 2 etc
  • and lots more...
