On Wednesday we read One Small Blue Bead and tried a new reading program at library for elementary-aged kids which had a whopping three attendees, including Gracie.
Thursdays are planned to be our "unschooling" day where we focus more on non-core subjects and educational projects. We met Gracie's teacher that we'll be meeting with once a month. We started our six-week long composer study (J.S. Bach) and artist study (Piet Mondrian).
Gracie got to do some handicrafts when she made a simple game bag for those nomad hunting excursions. She used my sewing machine for the first time. Can you tell she's proud?
Friday included a field trip to museum for some bear research.
While we're waiting for our science curriculum Gracie's been working on a lapbook on bears inspired by our camping trip to Sequoia National Park last week.
A big disappointment was no nature study this week due to wildfires, smoky air, and 100+ degree temperatures. We'll just have to double up next week!
