When we visit our children, we get to witness Homeschooling in process. Both our Daughters home school their children. Our Grandchildren are doing very well. Above you will see Ansir in deep thought while he completes a science test. He did very well, a "B+"
Here he is doing a art project. But as he dose this, he is learning about a special art from years gone by, a special art that started over 2000 years ago. I also got to take part in this part of his home schooling, making Ukrainian Easter Eggs.
Home schooling dose not stop when we visit! Here we got to watch our grandchildren do math, history, English, writing, listen to them read to us, and much more.
Hear our just 5 yr old grandson is patiently waiting his turn to get his letter and number paper so he could practice his writing. If I remember correctly, his letter was a R and his number was a 5. I also got to color with the two younger grandchildren during their art.
Piano practice is very much a part of their day. The three older grandchildren all take piano lessons and do very well. I am always amazed at how much they have improved from one visit to the next.
The youngest is only 18 months but she keeps herself occupied while mom works with the other children. She is very much into learning to buckle this strap.
She tried and tried!
And tried some more. She also likes to color and try write with pen or pencil. She can't help it if it sometimes gets places where it should not be.
We enjoyed a very educational field trip to a History museum.
There was so much to see, read and learn about our history of our state and country.
There was also a hands on Imagination Station. Here they were pretending to be at a store stalking up Rice, flower, beans and sugar for the hard, long frontier winter.
They had dress up cloths. Isn't she a doll?
We had a great time and all 6 of our grandchildren are learning so much. I know they are way ahead of where I was at when I was their age.
The one on one teaching, learning sure has it's advantages and we are very proud and happy that our daughters can take on this big responsibility. They are doing a great job.
