On Fridays we follow this routine:
- Watch a documentary-currently The Story of Mankind
- Do an art project from Art Lab for Kids
- Spend the remainder of the morning working on whatever else we need to do, with a focus on the more fun stuff, like read-alouds, science experiments, picture study, etc.
- Quit early to go do something fun with our homeschool group!
One thing I really want to get back to doing is nature study, which somehow got dropped along the way. We always used to do nature journals on Friday, but now I find I don't have too much ambition for nature walks at the end of the week. A documentary where I can sit down is more my speed.
I am not sure how exactly we will go about it. We may try the outdoor hour challenges or go back to using The Nature Connection. Or perhaps both? I also want to do some Shakespeare with the kids. I think that would fit in well on Fridays. Things to ponder....and post about later on.
In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend!
