In addition to science units, we will be continuing with Touchmath. I am considering supplmenting Touchmath with some living math books from the Mathstart series. I have read a lot about a Living Math approach on Kendra's and Heather's blogs.
Since A17 has been very interested in arts and crafts, I have been putting together a unit for him on art which I hope will have us exploring some different types of projects. We will be using this book :
plus some stories about artists and their work. One of these is the Katie series by James Mayhew.
We will also be checking out the Smart About Art series and Touch the Art which is a board book series with textures.
I like to have a general plan down on paper and then tweak things as we go along. If A17 is really into something I want to be able to spend more time with it or if interest is flagging I can switch gears.
If you are homeschooling or creating a meaningful day, have you made any plans? Comments and links are welcome!
