Yes, another homeschooling blog...

Swimming Lessons 10-10:45am: Mara says the best part is throwing a toy and swimming after it; worst part is having to swim out to the deep end with her feet up.


Sight Words review

Writing: Alphabet; Said each sound with each letter

Narration: Mara told me the story of Jack and the Bean Stalk

Geography Book: Made a list off all different types of bodies of water including: Oceans, Lakes, Seas, Rivers, Streams, (and man-made pools and ponds) clouds, rain, puddles; learned about straits and  glaciers. Talked about the difference between a lake and a sea. Looked at what 'north,' 'south,' 'east,' and 'west' mean in relation to Indiana.
