We are in a hotel room in Steamboat Springs, this weekend we journeyed to Utah and Colorado’s Dinosaur National Monument. We really loved seeing all the dinosaurs this weekend! More photos to come when I am home with Photoshop, but here’s a few teasers.

First stop today was a Natural History museum in Utah where we were greeted by this Diplodocus!

Then onto Dinosaur National Monument park where Satori earned her Junior Paleontologist badge!

As we explore new programs and curriculums, I will obsessively blog and share photos of our experiences. I know when I research new homeschooling programs, I really, really appreciate it when I can see these curriculums in action, with descriptive details and photos. So I hope to help out a few families with our detailed experiences. 🙂

Mat Man is one of the activities using the wooden shapes of Handwriting Without Tears (HWT). He’ll help your children visualize drawing people in a more detailed way. So we built him yesterday while listening to our HWT CD.  Here is our Mat Man:

And here’s Satori’s drawing of him. Compared to her drawing on the previous post on Thursday, this one is less pretty, but does have eyebrows, nice hands and legs. 🙂

Then we started our wooden pieces with just 4 shapes to make the first 5 letters. The wooden shapes include: Big Line, Little Line, Big Curve, and Little Curve. Together, they’ll make all but two of Capital Letters. Here’s our capital E sitting on the blue mat that we used with Mat Man.

Next week we’ll be forming approximately 5 letters a day to finish the alphabet. Then we’ll take the rest of the summer going more slowly taking each letter and learning how to form it correctly. Satori already knows all her letters, but does not form them all correctly. So by sticking to our HWT schedule, by August we’ll have all our capital letters down pat.
