It seems once we pick up a topic we have a hard time leaving it behind. We move on to new things, but we’re continually curious about it and constantly adding new projects, ideas and learning. I like this, Naomi is particularly excited when she associates new things with what she already knows. Her excitement can be truly inspirational.
A few weeks ago we studied the number 7 and to go along we looked at Rainbows which have 7 colors. Naomi quickly learned the order of the 7 colors and has since become familiar with primary versus secondary colors as well. Seems like an advanced concept, but she is so interested…
For our homeschool group that meets every other week she always learns a poem. We were fortunate to find the following and she recited it perfectly yesterday! We found it in this book, but I’m certain it’s in others as well.
Boats sail on the rivers,
And ships sail on the seas;
But clouds that sail across the sky
There are bridges on the rivers,
But the bow that bridges heaven,
And builds a road from earth to sky,
Is prettier far than these
