As a home schooling mom I am always interested in extra things for my kids to do. I'm not so much interested in social/play dates, but rather extra academic things to add to what we are doing at home. My biggest weakness in schooling them is probably science. It is always a pain when you go to do an experiment and you don't have the stuff! I love reading and my favorite thing to teach is History.... but science... not so much!
I was very excited last year when I discovered that our local Air Force base offered STEM classes! Mariah, Malachi and Myles all take those classes. (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.)
Another class that they take is at an aquarium that is very close to us! Macheus goes once a month for the toddler class and the two older boys go to the home school class. They study plants and animals and get to use microscopes and do dissections! It is great!
Macheus working hard on his snake!
Dissecting an earthworm when they were studying invertebrates.
When classes are over they love to go do the hunting and fishing simulators!
So cute watching him in his little class! I love that I can stay through all of their classes!
Serious about their work! :)
Macheus wasn't too sure about touching the live snake!
Sitting in some planes at the Air Force base!
Busy schedule, but I think they enjoy getting out of the house a little and they are definitely learning a lot!
