Passport To France....

Hello everyone. This week Freckles started out ill again with the flu and fever. Poor dear couldn't stand to keep her head up with her head pounding and sore throat. I pretty much gave her the week off to rest. By the time Friday rolled around she was still a bit under the weather...yet, she had a little more spunk in her. I was planning on starting our unit studies on France earlier in the week...But since she was ill we held off....Until she felt better. We started it Friday....And love it...I ordered the Passport to France unit studies through Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett. We spent the morning by making our passport and watching video clips, geography lessons and cooking.
 We cooked up one of our favorite things to eat...CREPES...
Freckles spent the rest of our day creating her first lapbook on France...Filling out maps, learning French words and numbers and drawing The Eiffel Tower. Then we went to the Library to pick out some books to read up on more facts and fun in France. This has been a really fun way to get creative while learning. We have already decided to get another Unit Study on Italy. We have lot's more to learn and add to the lapbook next week...Saturday morn we will make a special trip down to the Patisserie for some authentic French crepes and hot cocoa.
Today I am thankful for:
81. Being able to Home School
82. Fun lessons
83. The Library
84. Books
85. New things to learn about and be blessed by.
