Week in Review: Oak Meadow Kindergarten ~ Week 14/15

For the first time in our near four months of homeschooling, we had school every day this week.  

Every day.

How, you ask?  Why?  I'm afraid I cannot answer that.  If sister didn't suggest it herself, she happily obliged when I did.  And it was a great, learning filled week.  

One of the focuses and much of the fun this week was exploring the number 7.  

We made houses built from just seven sticks 

and spent some time learning about the seven colors of the rainbow.  

Our dry erase colors were limited, but we made do and sister has been into indigo ever since.  

When I surveyed our surroundings and found some dominoes literally lying around the house, I decided to pull them into our seven work as well.  

We found the three combinations for making seven which sister displayed for a photo 

before requesting to film another how-to video assigning herself with the additional role of camera woman.  

This week we also discovered and captured on video her ability to belly roll.

Her talents abound.

Sister showed a lack of enthusiasm for drawing new letters K and L this week seen in her L drawing below:

This may have had something to do with the building anticipation of Easter day's celebrations.  Sister marked the upcoming occasion on the calendar with an egg more colorful than anything we produced when decorating the real deal.  This due to the fact that by the time we made it to the grocery store over the weekend, all the dye kits were sold out besides one (!) with an Iron Man theme.  

I mean, when I think Easter, I think Iron Man, don't you?

But hey- who's got time for buying dye kits when they're in school every day?

We didn't, and we didn't miss a thing.
