Today we were back into the swing of things, though, and here’s what we did:
*Handwriting (lowercase letter review)
*Spelling pre-test (central ‘oa’ and ‘ow’)
*Writing (using order words)
*Lit (“Sam the Minute Man” and then we watched the Schoolhouse Rock “Shot Heard Round the World” video)
*Math (make and break numbers, expanded form)
*Vocab test (windowpane, ferryboat, downpour, peppermint, patchwork, dewdrops, bedspread, dictionary, heap, compete, bray, experiment, fabric, drone, haven’t, wouldn’t, they’ll, aren’t)
*Science (types of clouds, Brady painted them and then we watched a video for “It Looked Like Spilt Milk”)
*Music (High and low hand signs, intro and melody, “Charlie Over the Ocean,” “Simon Says,” “Ring Around the Rosie,” “Mother, Mother,”Slahal,” “Blue Danube Waltz”)
*B picked out a couple books on tape during this weeks library visit so he’s been listening to “What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best” and “JamBerry” a lot.
*He also read “If You Take a Mouse to the Movies” about 5 times today (he LOVES those books and I thought we owned them all until we saw that one at the library)
When Paul got home from work we had planned to look at a 3 bdrm place about 30mins from here, but it was so obviously not a good fit when we got there that we didn’t even go in. Since we were out, though, we went ahead and drove on to the nearest “big” town a little more than an hour away and went out to dinner and did a little bit of shopping. Nice to get out of our rinky-dink town once in awhile.
I’ve also got this gluten-free sourdough starter going and I’ll let you know if it works. Sourdough bread may be the thing I have missed most since going gf so I’m really hoping.
And that’s what we’ve been up to. How are things in your homeschool?
