Our 12th unit covered the letter G, goats, and other farm animals.
Day 4 suggested sampling cow’s milk and goats milk. As much as I encourage the girls to try new things, I was just not ready for goat’s milk. Instead we did a cut out mountain goat and learned about them. One of the many great things about homeschooling is that I get to learn things along with the girls. For example, I had no idea that mountain goats only lived in North America, specifically the northwestern part.
We pretty much followed the curriculum for each other day. I found these matching puzzle sheets so Sarah could match baby farm animals with their parents.
For our classical music activity we listened to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and made art with finger paints. I hung their work in our very own art gallery. Sarah wanted me to throw hers away because she didn’t like how it turned out. I tried explaining that there isn’t really a wrong way to do art. I think her piece has grown on her.
Stay tuned for the fun we had during our cow unit!
