Last day of school before our second week of vacation. Hopefully we will get lots of work completed on our new schoolroom renovation.
Peanut has been very interested in this satelite map this week. This morning she was showing Iish where all the continents are on the map and singing him the continent song.
Children under three have their naps in the bedrooms. The older children have "rests" on their mats in the schoolroom as they listen to stories. Today they listened to Thornton Burgess animal tales.

I have put most of our Montessori materials away for the summer but I am glad I have kept the map out, it has seen a lot of use this summer. We have been learning about oceans this week and while looking at a book yesterday we came across a picture of Pangaea. Little Man arrived today and wanted the book so he could build Pangaea.
All the non-swimmers are required to wear a life jacket or a float suit while in the pool enclosure ...even if they are not swimming.

I pulled out the Aqua Doodle this morning. During the school year we have new "work" everyday but during the summer we spend most of our time outside. The children still enjoy something new every couple of weeks. Peanut drew an Aboriginal Xray picture as we have been learning about the Aborigines of Australia this week.
Today was the last day before we close for a weeks holiday. Have a safe week Tree House Gang and enjoy your holidays with your families.

Here is an update on our renovations.....the livingroom is now separate from our schoolroom....lots left to do. We are hoping to have everything complete for the beginning of the new school year.
Our classroom feels so big now....we still have lots to do. We have a couple of walls to build, some cubbies and shelves to make and fresh paint.......but we are on our way.
