I’m half a week late writing the wrap-up, in part because Brady has his first tummy bug of the season towards the end of last week and we’ve had to play a little bit of catch-up.
Here’s what we were up to on our 7th (already!) week of school:
Scholastic Readers: “Kids Clubs That Helped the World” and “The Voice of the Sea”
HOP Spelling: color words
Spelling words: door, rug, desk, home, room, house
Printing: duck, dog, dance, Danny, elephant, egg, elbow, Ellie, frog, fish, fox, Florida, giraffe, grass, glasses, Gretchen, hippo, hat, heart, Hannah
Reading Comprehension: Filling in the missing words of sentences describing a given picture.
Storytelling: Brady and Paul continued to use the StoryWorld cards we checked out from our local library
Arithmetic: addition with sums to 18
Time math: Matching digital and face clocks
Money math: Adding and comparing amounts of money
Science: We did a floating grapes experiment from our experiment book and talked about density
We made cave paintings (more about our Early humans unit can be found here)
And I traced Brady’s profile and let him decorate it and then we talked about Masaccio (idea from our “Great Artists” book)
Music: We talked about string instruments
Latin: casa (house), porta(door), murus(wall), fenestra(window) and a review of the last few chapters
Sensory: Spaghetti bath
In the kitchen:
We made baked apple cinnamon oatmeal
and lemon melting moments that were gone before I could take a picture
We’ve also carved pumpkins
And rearranged our school room (thanks to some bookshelves Gramma and Papa found at a garage sale)
This will sound silly, but I have always wanted a school room (I even put one in the house I made for Geometry in High School) and I am just thrilled with our little space.
I also got a little make-over of my own last week
And that’s what we were up to, how are things in your homeschool?
