Over the past week of unschooling, Ethan spent a lot of time learning about cube roots. It was also the end of activities for the Christmas break and the start of really gearing up for Santa’s big day.

Still, there was lots of learning going on for Ethan so here’s what happened…

To finish the night, we all watched a few episodes of Brainchild, a fun and engaging science show for kids on Netflix.

This is a video I made about our walk to the library.

We again watched Brainchild on Netflix and learned a few things about how our memory works. There was a memory trick that hopefully, helps Ethan remember lists of things… hope it helps me, too!

We’ve also been reading the first Cosmic Trilogy book by C.S. Lewis. Ethan seems to like it because it’s set on Mars. The language is a bit older for him, I believe, so I sometimes stop to ask him if he knows a certain word or expression. ( Ethan here… I like it because Mars is a great planet. Mars is the fourth planet from the sun, it is half the size of earth, and it might have had life!)

Anyway, that was the week! Have a Happy Holidays and all the best in 2019!
