If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. ~ Adlai Stevenson

Monday Musings...

Ideas for the week... I am contemplating two paths of learning this week, and will let the kids choose... (or we could maybe do both!?!)

Path A
Watch episode 2 of America: The Story of US (or maybe re-watch episode 1)

Read aloud You Wouldn't Want to Sail on the Mayflower, and, if I can get ahold of it, You Wouldn't Want to be an American Colonist

Path B
Read aloud a chapter or two from The Early Human World

Watch an episode of Becoming Human

Read aloud from The Complete Book of Marvels

Enjoy another couple of chapters in Life of Fred Apples

Have Bug make one of these spiffy synonym wheels

Use some writing prompts (again with Beetle) from Our Enchanted Place (thank you Kim!)

Do some math daily, either from Math Mammoth or one of the workbooks I have laying about

Finish reading aloud chapter 1 in The Magic of Reality

Work on projects from our Spiral Scout handbooks

Possibly start our mythological creatures lapbooks at long last!

Have Cricket continue working on phonics - Explode the Code, reading practice

Have Bug work on spelling and/or vocabulary

Continue reading aloud from Knight's Castle

Enjoy listening to more of The Phantom Tollbooth

Spend some time outdoors enjoying nature... if the rain stays away

Learn more about the house finches that have moved into the nest outside our bedroom window this year. Last year it was a pair of black phoebes that used the nest!

  1. Sounds like a fabulous week to me! Enjoy it!


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Thanks for stopping by! I love comments :)
