the squirm is getting the most academic time. he goes to the coolest home school enrichment program on mondays, where he does art, physics and pe. he is the youngest in the group, so he is getting exposed to things i would not dare attempt! i love it.
he also goes to a weekly science class, presented by another of the home school moms, and he is part of a monthly science coop. wednesdays through fridays we use work boxes to present curriculum, and his aba therapists help him work through the contents.
i was originally struggling to find a way to put a self contained art lesson in a drawer, something that could be done without my involvement. then i discovered deep space sparkle. fun activities, great directions, and it is really the one opportunity for both kids to participate in the same activity.
this friday i chose this activity, based on the book a color of his own, by leo lionni. it was a guided drawing (excellent practice for following verbal directions), and then watercolor resist. i helped the squirt out by drawing his chameleon, but the squirm drew and painted completely independently. i might have to frame this one.
