600 Pieces of Fun

This is what has been going on at our house.
Geography mania~I got this puzzle and when I opened it and saw the sizes of the pieces, I thought, that is never going to get done~well it looks pretty good doesn't it??
Sophia and her dad have been working very hard on it every night, and I am really proud of them. See that pesky little missing piece? Can you believe it? Oh well........

A good week~

This week has been good, I have to say, after the break, it felt pretty good to get back into our routine. We got back into a flow with Story of the world. We are slowly coming out of Ancient Egypt, and spent some time with Ancient India, and China.
We also had some fun doing the snake game and playing with the math manipulatives.
She practiced her skip counting with 2,3,4,and 5's with the chains.

Geography has taken on a new life with our map and figures from Winter Promise.
You can check it out

It has been fun, because whenever we learn about an area, there are cute stickers to put on the map. I purchased their children around the world unit, and really love it, but can't seem to fit it all in. I wonder why?
