Our Tadpole "Classes"

Well, I blogged about our tadpoles before and we were excited to see that they were finally growing up!!
Here is our first to be "mobile" - very froggy looking now!!

The rest are still at hind legs only, but are growing some lovely bumps at the front!
As of tomorrow, we will be moving Mr Advanced to the Frog Tank while we wait the rest to catch up!
We have also been working on book work - Dragonett Lass has finished off 3 work books in the past two weeks!! That is fantastic for her! She is really trying to do books that are a little ahead of her learning at the moment, but I figure I will honour her wishes as they are stretching her quite a bit - we'll see how she copes. This is actually a great step forward for her. In the past she has been quite worried about 'getting it right', as I'm sure I have blogged about before. At the moment, she is concentrating more on figuring it out, so am excited to see where it leads!!

We have also had a craft explosion here - Here are just a few samples of what has been created...
 Collage

Painting - a note here, Dragonett Lass doesn't often paint 'things' or people, generally she just paints, but lately she has been focusing on painting things and scenes, it is quite amazing to see the changes as she becomes more imaginative and creative.


We have been tossing up the idea of moving into a caravan for a while and Dragonett Lass drew her own design of what she thinks the perfect 'house with wheels' looks like...

 

Dragonett Lad doing his first wool creation. Using the glue stick and cut up bits of wool, he played with sticking them to his paper. He had so much fun working out the stickiness of the glue, the relationship between the three items, gorgeous!


And here are the kids all making Treasure Boxes with some cake boxes we got from Freecycle (well, Dragonett Lad got gypped and only had paper, but hey, he thought it was all the same thing - LOL)



All we have left to do now is the inside - line it and finish off the decorations.

We were recently given a fabulous book from a friend - Science With Plants. Its a really great little book designed for the younger children.

We started off with seedlings - Dragonett Lass is very excited to see them split and start to germinate


 
Dragonett Lass has also graduated from her (cardboard)box violin to her 'real' violin last week. She is really coming along with this and is finally happy to do her practicing. I'm quite jealous to be honest!!



That is only a few of the things we have done over the past few weeks -
Home schooling sure is fun!! :)
