Science and Social Studies: Days 3 and 4

It’s important to note that not every day goes as planned. On day 3, just as we were getting ready to do our activity for Science, it started to rain. This is any outdoor activity, so, we had to put it on hold for a later date.

For both science and social studies, we continued to use Epic!, to read about fall and voting.

This week is our first week doing multiple contents with our new curriculum . So, the goal for science and social studies this week has been to have fun while learning. Since we are focused on getting caught up in Language Arts and Math, we also have been focused on getting into a rhythm and not putting too much on our plates for other contents.

We also reviewed by watching voting and fall videos on Brain Pop.

Day 4, we had planned a field trip to Dogwood Canyon. They currently have educational activities that fit right into our theme for science. Unfortunately, as we were pulling into the parking lot. . . I hear from the back of the truck “Mom, my stomach hurts.” I’ll spare you the details of what happened next, but let’s just say. . .we had to turn around and leave just as we arrived.

We got back home, and immediately I had to clean out the truck.

So, we ended up taking a day off from school, yesterday. It was much needed after the morning we had.

If you’re new to homeschool this year, and you’re feeling overwhelmed. . . Please remember to give yourself grace. Give your kids grace. It’s ok to take a day off here and there. You can catch up! Don’t stress. Find community and link arms with those who have gone before you!!

*Out of transparency, I do not get a paid commission if you click on the links above. I like to share resources I use. Both of the learning websites, I do pay monthly subscriptions to. And the field trip, when we reschedule, will be a paid field trip. There are a ton of resources out there, though and it’s easy to find free resources in your community!
