The week started slowly and with some difficulty, but Wednesday went very very well. We're working on getting through our regular work. In a week or two, we'll be adding some assigned individual work.
Bible: Saturday's recitation didn't go very well, so we spent the week reviewing through Day Four.
Catechism/Creed:M-girl is doing very well with her questions on Christ's offices. The other children spent one more week on their questions and I expect will move on next week.
Hymn: Riches I heed not. What a great hymn, it has brought out good conversations.
Poetry: N-boy is ready to move forward to "Whole Duty of Children." M-girl is ready to move on, as well to the poem with all the Gs. R-birl is working, working, working on After the Party.
Counting: We're counting by threes, they're not really getting it yet. Glad we review a lot :)
Other Memory Work: They love learning Buckeye Battle Cry, I think it is their favorite bit of memory work right now :) (Kickoff in one week! Go Bucks!)
M-girl: She's moving right along with her lessons, we started learning about contractions this week.
N-boy: He worked all week on one lesson: /sh/ But, he worked hard and kept at it.
R-girl: She glued a "key" to her "K."
M-girl: She's moving right along with her MEP. I love the logic problems that force her to *think.*
N-boy: He's also moving along in MEP, but having more trouble with some of the problems. We're going to do some review next week, methinks. He did have fun with his math manipulatives this week:
|Army Men as Math Manipulatives|
R-girl: She's still doing her numbers, counting playing with puzzles.
M-girl: We finished the lessons about Seasons, Months, and Holidays and began the lessons about capitalizing the word "I."
M-girl: She started working on cursive "a" Penmanship isn't her favorite lesson of the day. We'll keep working.
N-boy: He's working on writing his numbers.
Geography:We studied Europe, colored European Union Flags, a map of Europe, and read about Scandinavia.
Spanish: We reviewed Lessons 1-3 and the vocabulary.
Art: The children finger-painted on Monday. R-girl was not a fan (get messy on purpose?)
Read Alouds: We're still reading The Burgess Bird Book (will it never end?) and The Borrowers. Someone did post a book with color photos for The Burgess Bird Book which helps some. We keep pressing on because M-girl keeps seeing birds and saying things like, "That's Killy! We read about him in the book." [sigh] I suppose we could call it the science we're not doing. We also read Nursery Rhymes and poetry during our Circle Time.
Bible: We've continued with the story of Joseph in Vos.
