Baloo – 38.5 months
We’ve decided to start doing weekly themes, and I am getting very excited about it!! I’m hoping to have them coincide with our letter of the week for the most part. This week we did H for the Human body. Then on Wednesday we went to a puppet show at our library. The puppet show was a story based on an old Aztec tale. Baloo was very curious about the Aztecs, so Wednesday night I whipped up a few Aztec activities and we switched themes. So, it’s a double-theme week!
We started off our exploration of the human body by reading through a pretty thorough book on the human body. I tried to concentrate just on things that he could understand, or things he found particularly interesting. He really liked the bones section. He’s been talking about his bones for a month or 2 now, and I think this week he finally made the connection and figured out what they are.
After reading the book we pointed out some of our body parts.
Here is Baloo pointing out his kidneys
and his brain:
Then we worked on a human body lapbook that we found here:
The only thing I added to hers is the Measure Me part from Homeschool Share:
