I usually try to post on Friday afternoons what we've been doing in homeschool with Matthea. It is a way for others to see and to keep me accountable to actually doing something with her. So last week we did have a little bit of homeschooling even though we went on vacation for a few days and big brother had the entire week off. One morning was spent with Papa going to the store to buy ingredients to make a pineapple milkshake.
Getting ready for her job....
|....of putting in the pineapple chunks...|
or should I say, squeezing the pineapple chunks into it.
|They had quite the mound going....|
|The blender startled her, but she loved watching it.|
|But, drinking it was the best part!|
|First, she glued the precut trunk onto paper.|
|Then she used green paint to make the leaves.|
|Then using hand over hand, I helped her make|
small red circles that represented the apples.
|Finished Apple Tree|
|She LOVED this!|
|Our fall tree. It is outside our apartment. It will|
continue to change as we study pumpkins and
scarecrows these next few weeks. So, you WILL see
this tree a few more times. =)
