Well. Hasn’t it been a long time, eh?
We’re moving house. On Monday. Have you ever ‘transitioned‘ with a special needs child? Try not to, it is so very challenging. Moving house isn’t my favourite thing to do, even though I have incredibly itchy feet and always want to live somewhere different, but I would like to just go to bed in one house, wake up in another. If necessary, I can take a two week Pacific Island holiday in between to allow this to happen…….
Here I am posting some photographs of Mr. D.’s recent works. Not in order (order is definitely missing at present) and not in context.
A paper cylinder drawn by Mr. D. has pictures of every increasing/decreasing size (inspired in equal parts by Bugs Bunny and Vi Hart, the mathemagician); Mr. D. was giving his version of infinite series.
We also have some Lego figures: person on a couch, washer/dryer with man adding washing powder. We started these in response to Lego Quest (http://legoquestkids.blogspot.com/) a wonderful blog for homeschooling families that love Lego. We had been a part of an online Lego club but as they were nation-wide, the live classroom didn’t work well for us time-wise. Lego Quest gives you a regular “mission” to build Lego pieces and then will publish the submitted photographs. Woot! My lad loves seeing his things publicly displayed (who doesn’t, right?).
Last, and most certainly not least, are two playdough creations that now look a little worse for the travelling. We have Mr. Shark and Mr. Penguin, both seem to be in response to watching the three episodes of Great Barrier Reef by the BBC on DVD. Can’t vouch for the parentage of Mr. Shark but I do think Mr. Penguin is just a little bit Elvis, little bit Roy Orbison, no?
There you have it. So much more work has been done – reading is improving at a rapid rate – but I haven’t had a chance to get my head around it let alone photograph or chronicle it.
See you once we’ve moved!
