|Don't those sort of/kind of look like the phases of the moon? Maybe?|
Last week we started a moon journal. The cloud cover has cooperated and T has been able to record each night's moon.
While we were on the phases of the moon, T made some Oreo moons. Needless to say this project didn't last long. I had lots of teens wishing they were studying moon phases on that day.

|That would be a "crater!"|
Of course, we did other fun things like learning how to round in math by going to Starbucks and adding the order for mental math (rounding was a big help then!).
After our recent trip to Alaska, T decided to not just gather state facts, but to write a paragraph about the beauty she witnessed. I love how self motivated she was for that....I came home from the post office and she had taped it to the garage door for me to see! It made me happy to my toes!
I'm still trying to figure out how to make grammar fun and exciting for both of us. We are enjoying the Daily Grams (a big hat tip to Kris for putting that on our radar!)....but....well....a piece of paper kind of pales in comparison to the other hands-on learning we've been doing this week. Any ideas?
