They think they deserve to be treated like royalty anyway, so it really didn’t change the dynamics of our day. lol
This was actually our 100th day of school which is a BIG deal for kindergarteners. We’re a little late celebrating this since we usually have school 4 days per week rather than 5.... another good thing about home schooling. There are no minimum required days. I am also careful not to count days where I don’t feel that we’ve actually accomplished what I intended…due to interruptions, etc. So, today was the big 100. Here’s the princess counting out 100 M& M’s to go along with the 100 pretzels, 100 peanuts, 100 popcorn kernels and 100 raisins in our special trail mix.
Our topic this week is “Vegetables.” The theme is God Provides Everything We Need for Growth just as He provides sun, rain, soil, climate etc. for the growth of our crops. We started the week off with a visit to the produce section of the local grocery store.
This morning DD spent some time observing and categorizing the different types of vegetables we purchased.
I got the girls to eat several of the vegetables by letting them make their own vegetable pizzas tonight.
I had to let them add a little pepperoni, too.
But underneath all of this cheese are olives, green and yellow bell peppers, and mushrooms. DD even ate tomatoes today. Tomorrow she's going to try carrot & raisin salad. It’s amazing what you can get kids to do if you just tell them it’s part of their school lesson…well, at least when their young. Maybe I should present a lesson on the “blessings of keeping a clean house”….Hmmm. It might be worth a try. LOL
