Looking back a couple weeks, here are some pictures from “U/V” week. I can’t seem to find any of the girls completed coloring pages and worksheets for this week. I set them aside to photograph, and now I can’t find them. . . It looks like I’ve developed a habit of hiding things from myself!
Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE the book God’s Alphabet?!? It is such a great book!! Here is the quote for “V” week:
each child must
In his own little heart, against
Satan and sin.
Volcanoes (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)
Volcanoes, Level 2: Internet Referenced
Pompeii…Buried Alive! (Step-Into-Reading, Step 4)
Exploring Creation With Astronomy
Volcano & Earthquake (DK Eyewitness Books)
Volcano Maze (pdf)
We added sound effects to a video clip of our volcano!
Since we’ve been enjoying lots of treats during our weekly Good Shepherd’s Garden Parties, I am trying to choose mostly healthier “treats” as we finish up the Alphabet Path. This week we snacked on Uncooked Vegetables and made
Potato Veggie Volcanos (adapted from Big Snacks, Little Meals: After School, Dinnertime, Anytime) since I had some broccoli that needed to be used up in the fridge. These were SO easy and such a hit with my children!
All I did was place a “mountain” of hot mashed potatoes on top of some freshly steamed broccoli. I then made a well in the top of the mashed potatoes for the opening of the volcano and then topped it with grated cheddar cheese, which quickly melted to look like lava flowing from the top of the volcano.
We’ve since worked our way through “W” week and have moved on to “X/Y”. It looks like me might be able to finish the Alphabet Path this year after all!
