Days 146 - 160 Finished with MFW First Grade!

We are officially done with school for this year!  This picture was on our last day.  We've had a great year, and now we're looking forward to a great summer!  We finished so early because we started the beginning of August, and then didn't take off as many days as I expected.  I found it was much easier to keep the kids in the routine of school instead of taking lots of days off!  We'll still be working on math facts and reading books over the summer, as well as working in our garden and doing some nature studies.

Below are Caleb's last two bible notebook pages.  Sometimes I copy the picture in the bible reader and he colors it and glues it into his notebook.  He doesn't like to draw very much...

Our last science experiment was to grow carrot and beet leaves.  They are actually growing!

And this is our soil separation!

And here is a garden made from pattern blocks.  Joshua really wanted to grab them!

To celebrate the end of the year, we took the kids to Walmart and let them pick out a toy with their chore money.  Caleb picked a Lego set and Rebekah picked a pony that came in a shiny purse.  We had a fun year, and now I'll be ordering MFW Adventures in US History for next year, and also redoing Kindergarten for Rebekah!  She is already starting to sound out letters and reading a few simple words!  I have been so blessed to be able to teach my children at home!

  1. You're going to love Adventures! And I'm with you on the whole keeping the kids in a routine rather than taking off too many days. Things seem to go much better when they have something to DO each day other than only free play.

    My daughter wasn't much of a drawer when she was in 1st, but she's been blossoming in that area lately and it is such a joy to see the things she comes up with! Don't worry about Caleb. :-)
