The One School Supply on our List

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

On my list for the year, is a digital camera for my school age kids.

It sounds a bit extravagant, doesn't it?  But hand-me-down, partially working ones are perfectly fine for my two big kids.  And so much fun for our nature studies-that I am determined to do with more consistency this year.

Did you invest in any new school supplies this year?

I don't think it is extravagant at all Kristen! Digital cameras are so inexpensive these days. One activity my son loved to do was to label his photographs on the computer - not just the place/date but for example a picture of an animal - you can add in anatomy labels which explains why I have a picture of a duck which has all its various parts labeled and I just thought it had feathers, wings, webbed feet and a beak! It is a great learning activity especially if they have taken the picture.

I love Ann's idea.. wow, there are some amazing things you can do these days with homeschooling.
We didn't have any of this when I was homeschooling
our first four. We did keep nature journals though, and they would draw and label the things they saw. I still have those journals, they are little treasures.

Am enjoying your blog. I loved the quilting idea below, and now I have a new idea... I haven't quilted much in recent years, but lately am having a long to. I like the idea of sending it out to be actually "quilted"... since I have never done anything bigger than a pillow, and quilted it by hand.
