Yes, I am still getting caught up on 3rd grade homeschool posts. I have one more after this and then I will be done.
So here are most, but not all, of the pages from our first farming main lesson book. This we did last autumn. I mentioned in my last homeschool post that gardening and farm visits were already a part of our lives...
So we decided we would just make up a little farm story. We created the story together, each day making one or two pages. The drawings she did on her own, something we did for the first time this year. (This was also the first year that I didn't make my own lesson book along with her.)
(Kind of funny because really we were still vegan at this time, although we already knew changes were coming.)
On this day we really were planting garlic. We have just recently been harvesting our first cloves.
I think I was off with my timing on this one. The wheat may have been harvested sooner.
On a recent farm visit Sara had been harvesting triticale. We did not thresh the grain with a flail though... (okay maybe no one does anymore...) first we were banging it in a metal garbage can (loud!) but we soon switched to spreading it out on a sheet and stomping on it with our shoes!
We are not growing our own grain yet but we sure do lots of bread baking.
And then it was winter. Quiet, cozy, restful time on the farm. And then it was spring, and unfortunately we did not get the next lesson book completed. Chloe still wants to continue the story but I'm not sure when that might happen.
At least we have been getting in lots of garden time and some good farm visits too!
Alright, one more 3rd grade post to go, I will show some of the work we did for a block on time.
But it won't be my very next post, cause that is going to have to be the giveaway post...
Oh my, I am up so past my bedtime. Goodnight! (Good morning... Good day to all!)
