Last {Official} Week of School ~ Preschool Corner

Preschool CornerOfficially, this was our last week of school. The kids all buckled down and finished up all that we needed to for the year.

To celebrate the end of the school year, we went out to dinner at the kid’s favorite place to eat ~ Golden Corral. Not because of the wonderful food, but because they now offer cotton candy and a chocolate fountain {i.e. pure sugar} for your after dinner enjoyment.

Kaleb prefers to top his ice cream with a smattering of every kind of candy available. But…it’s the last week of school hurrah, so it was sugar or bust.

The rest of the week, Kaleb sat in on the wrap-ups of our lessons, especially for science. Ever since we started learning about birds and did those few bird chalk pastels, Kaleb has been drawing birds every single day. He gets a little frustrated at times but has drawn and colored over 12 birds this week using our Backyard Birds book as a guide.

Before you get to excited with the picture below, I lightly outlined the body on the bird and Laurianna helped shape the head. Kaleb  is adamant about getting the colors right though and having the details match the picture in the book. He has literally spent hours drawing ~ and I can’t say that I’m sad about that! :)

With the school year finished, that doesn’t mean that we are stopping though. Through the summer we’ll be doing school ~ but not on an ‘official’ schedule or where we call it school.

What are your plans for the end of the school year? Are you close to finishing up and will you keep playing through the summer too?

  1. We finished a few weeks ago so we have been taking it easy with some fun Spring Themes =)

  2. Julie at Creekside Learning says:

    Happy last week of school, Jolanthe and family! Love the bird drawings. Go Kaleb!

    We actually continue schooling and learning throughout the summer like you do. We don’t call it school, and it’s not very structured, but it keeps what we’ve been teaching them fresh in their minds. There is a lot of review during the summer so when “official” school begins, we don’t have to re-teach last year’s concepts.

  4. Congrats on finishing up! Love that sundae pic – that is a moment to remember! 

    Elli is done and Malachi will finish up next week with handwriting (finished math yesterday!).  I have 2 more books to row and we will continue on with Sonlight for another 9 weeks. But, my kids don’t know that SL is “school” and I am not about to let the cat out of the bag!
