Friday’s Fave Five! My first week

Filed under: Fridays Fave 5 — by my3boysandi @ 6:37 pm

This weekly meme is hosted by my long time bloggy friend Susanne.  Click on the picture to link

1.  Our first week back to home schooling and we are in our last term (New Zealand school terms are broken into 4 terms with holidays consisting of 2 week holidays bewteen them.  Each term is about 10 weeks long) it wont be long before we can say happily we have been home schooling a year.  Whats more this week went FAST!!!

2.  I LOVED this sketch of a kiwi that My Home Schooler drew

3.  Keeping with the thought of a kiwi, My Home Schooler and I got ourselves almost organised to start doing a flat traveller project.  Our flat traveller is a kiwi named Kerry 🙂  Hes already to be mailed somewhere apart from being lamated which we intend to do next Tuesday 🙂

4.  My Home Schooler started drama classes this week and theres a play to look forward to at the end of the year which he will be in.  Hes a bit of an actor is my boy and he performed in a couple of school plays when we lived in Auckland.  He enjoyed the class too.

5.  This afternoon at swimming I got some maths marking done and cut out the booklets for our next book in the Laura series – Farmer Boy.  This will actually be the 5th book we have read.  We had trouble getting Farmer Boy.  I was real chuffed when I finally found it.  It looks to be very interesting.

to find out what else we did this week you are very welcome to visit and book mark our home schooling blog

  4. Your year of home schooling has gone so well!

    I wish we had had dramam classes available when my kids were younger. I think they would have enjoyed them.

    they arent cheap but I think it will be s0 good 🙂

  5. Your boy is quite the artist! It’s nice that he’s enjoying his drama classes. It’s always fun for them when they can find something that they really enjoy. Thanks for playing along, Jen. I really enjoyed reading about your favorite things from your week!

    thanks. I enjoyed it and I liked the new visitors 🙂

  6. I loved hearing about your home schooling days…and I look forward to coming back and seeing more of your life in New Zealand!

    I’m starting a monthly home school “show and tell”…similar to what you just posted here today! I’ll be giving more info on it in a couple days and hope to officially start it the 28th (hopefully with Mr. Linky) , so maybe you can participate!

  11. What a sweet idea to use a Flat Kiwi from New Zealand instead of Flat Stanley.

    Welcome to Fave Five!

    thanks 🙂
