Weekly Report Week 11: 3/21/2011-3/25/2011



We had a light week this week. The week started with me feeling generally blechy, so we did no school on Monday. We accomplished Circle Time on Tuesday and Wednesday. I came to the conclusion that we needed a "light" week and it was refreshing. The children played outside and inside, Our brains had a slight rest.

Memory Work:

Bible: We learned Ps 130:3.

Catechism/Creed: We worked more on the Nicene Creed through the paragraph about Jesus. M-girl started Commandments 7 and 8. N-boy and R-girl continued working on their questions.

Hymn: We learned the second verse of Smitten, Stricken, and Afflicted.

Poetry: M-girl and N-boy started the first stanza of Rosetti's "Who Has Seen the Wind?" R-girl is working on "My Shadow."

Counting: Working on evens.

Other Memory Work We're working on the same History Sentences, the Plant Reproductive Cycle, and The Southern Border of the United States.

Read Alouds:

We started Bambi last week and are continuing. We are all enjoying the beautiful writing style. We're almost done with Stuart Little. We had hoped to finish before N-boy went to see the play with Columbus Children's Theatre, but did not. He enjoyed the play last night.

Bible:

We've continued with our reading through Vos' Story Bible. We read about Hezekiah tonight at dinner.

  2. I am, thanks. I felt some better Tuesday, and pretty much normal on Wednesday. It was lovely to have a slow week, and I actually think it was good for the children. We've been working so hard this winter, a few light days was a nice reprieve.

    We'll probably actually have a slightly lighter week this week too (less independent work) with the conference and preparation for it :)
