Please note before reading, that while I am teaching my kids, I am also human and may make grammatical errors in my writing. When I blog, I like to write as if I’m explaining in a conversational manner. I sometimes write quickly, sometimes squeezing time in between lessons, or among screaming children in my ear. I'm okay if you silently correct my grammar, but do it silently. This is the age of the internet where you will see many errors on social media.
Traveling the Oregon Trail
Our week learning about the Oregon Trail consisted of writing a diary entry as a pioneer, making a checklist of supplies, being creative and making a video about the Oregon Trail, mapping out the trail, labeling wagon parts, and even learning about animals on the trail such as oxen and buffalo. My youngest daughter's spelling list even had to do with words we were reading from the Oregon Trail.
I don't care how old my kids get, they will always enjoy picture books. So I checked these books out for reading during the week.
Who could also forget about the childhood game we all loved to play as kids when computers were still new. I just so happened to have the Oregon Trail game by Mecc. I couldn't believe the CD-Rom still worked with my Windows 10.
