Yesterday we had our first Tapestry of Grace (TOG) co-op meeting.  We went over weeks 1 and 2 of Year 1 Unit 1 which is Egypt.  The day went extremely well considering all of us are new to TOG and co-ops of this kind.  We started off with salt dough maps of either Egypt or an imaginary country.

Next, we made mud bricks.  This seemed like a fun idea, but in hindsight it was really messy with not much reward.  Hmm, maybe that’s how the Israelites felt.

Then, after cleaning everyone up, we divided into upper grammar and lower grammar groups, for vocabulary, geography, and literature review and discussion.  Then another project.  The upper grammer kids made mummies out of clay and put them in a sarcophagus folded from cardstock.

Then we went to the neighborhood park for lunch and came home.  I was totally exhausted!  I hope I can get used to this.  I’m really glad this is just every 2 weeks!

  1. What a busy day. How cool to have a co-op to do it with though. I opted for using sugar cubes when it came to making bricks. Yeah! I totally cheated.

    Blessings,

  2. Whew – that sounds like a lot in one morning. We started last week, but are starting on week 4 (with Creation) – imagine that; doing something different than your family! 🙂 We're not in a co-op, which I enjoy the flexibility but could use some of the accountability. Hope you all have a fun and great TOG year!

  3. What a neat day! I look forward to seeing more!
