Do you or maybe your child want to learn French? With just a few minutes a day you too can learn French. My daughter and I have been really enjoying learning French together with Getting Started With French – Beginning French for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age by Armfield Academic Press.
Getting Started With French is a self paced book. It allows you to make progress with or with out a teacher. The lessons are really detailed and I really like that along with the recordings of the words. You do have plenty of time for practice as you work through the book.

We have been working on a unit study with Robots. One of the things that I thought was pretty neat was we made a water clock. Making your own Water Clock is easy and the nice thing is you can incorporate doing things to see how long it takes you.
The Ancient Egyptians made water clocks that were bowls filled with water and it had small holes that the water would leak out. This was used to tell time. There were lines in the bowl that they were able to see where the water level was to be able to tell the time.
