Daffodils of course – The Sun is out :)

As our beautiful daffodils are finally out, we thought we would do a project on them

DS Daffodil (age 8)

DD Daffodil (age 12)

DS (age 5) made a space ship!! Obviously :)

 

We have a flower activity book from enchanted learning, for DS(8)  to do next. We are going to photograph our daffodils first, and play at the park.

 

 

 

DD (12) has a Spring Acrostic poem to complete. She is then identifying parts of a daffodil and filling in this worksheet, she will also be disecting a daffodil and examing it under a microscope following this, just looks fantastic, really great images, don’t you think?

DS(8) and DD(12) will also use this worksheet.

She will also be leading us in our photography.

 

 

 

DS (5) has a yellow themed colour page from enchanted learning here, also this writing worksheet.  He will also be joining in all our other activities.

 

 

We will be following this daffodil drawing tutorial, looks really good and the best one I have found. Each will be using this paper, to write out the most famous poem I know with daffodils in it :) They will have to use their best handwriting!

There are many more daffodils resources at activity village, mainly for younger ones, and DD (5) will be doing lots of them.

Our maths theme this week is polygons, there is loads of stuff out there and I will update you on more activities through the week but DD(12) is starting off with this to follow our flower theme. She loves drawing and the computer so should be a great activity for her! The ploygon song is fun too. This  also looks good there is part one and part two.

We are “hopefully” finishing up our darwin project this week, I will take some photos of their finished lapbooks.

DD (12) is making a documentary about our local church and DS (8) has more lego challenges!

So it is a busy week as usual but pretty fun :)

Since I have been making this post, they have made a video, no idea what it is about and it is  in the “editing” stage at the moment. Will upload it when they have finished editing.
UPDATED: here is the vid :) cute :)

Bye for now
