Besides writing, math and SQUILT this morning, we had a few inadvertent lessons on:

 

inclined planes

 

The science of inclined planes

 

 

 

mixing polymers

 

 

Mixing polymers to make silly bugs

The chicken’s palate (turns out they love couscous)

 

 

And these lessons that just creep up in our day unexpectedly are without a doubt the best ones, far outranking anything I wrote in my planner last summer.

This weekend, I’m going to be going through all the photos I took during the school year, sorting and organizing. Next week, the kids will start putting together their portfolios. I can’t wait to see what sorts of conversations this is going to stir up!
