Our homeschool week in books

I really enjoy seeing Alexandra’s posts about the books they use in their homeschool. What a fun way to keep track of what you are reading in your homeschool. I thought I would do a post this week on what books we used.

The birds are all arriving in our neck of the woods.  We read a few chapters in the Burgess Bird Book for Children, then found their pictures in the Birds of North America and listened to their calls online.  I saw this idea on an instagram feed and thought it was a wonderful way to do bird study, I wish I could remember who posted it.

Mathematicians Are People, Too– We did a daily reading in this and are really enjoying the stories.  They are helping bring math alive.

Lives of the Writers– We read about Mark Twain.
