My scholé group has met 5 times so far this year and we are really enjoying our time together! We took this week off as a small fall break, so I thought it would be a good time to share a little bit about what we have been doing!
In case this is your first time here (or if you just need a little refresher!) here is a quick summary of our group:
The Scholé Group of Rochester Hills began this year as a small group of like-minded families who desire to pursue restful learning together. We have three families this year and are enjoying our small group environment. We are a young group, with five children ages 4-7, so our meeting times may look a little different than other (older and larger) groups. Our main goal this year is to develop a love of learning in our children, setting before them a multitude of opportunities to take in truth, goodness, and beauty.
Ancient History Ideas
Paint cave drawings like early nomads - cut open some paper bags and let the children tell a story with pictures. They can draw animals, people, or scenes from nature.
Write in cuneiform like the Ancient Sumerians - roll out some clay (or Play Doh!) and have your child write messages using a stick. Here are some symbols you can use: Lean How to Write in Cuneiform.
Make a model of the Nile River - We introduced the Ancient Egyptians by talking about the land of Egypt. The children enjoyed making this model of the Nile River. We even planted grass seeds in the dirt and had fun watching the 'reeds' grow up along the banks of the river!
