Weekly Report: 10/17/11-10/21011



We had a pretty good week.  It is always slow returning after vacation - even 2 weeks later.  Need to get us all aback in the chores habit ;)  We had a long library trip on Monday, two solid days of lessons on Tuesday and Thursday.  A light day today ... and a trip to Leeds Farm to round out our educational experience for the week.

Phonics:

N-boy:  has only 18 lessons left in OPG!

R-girl: read a lesson or two, but read directions on a dot to dot page on her own for the first time.  She's doing awesome!

Assigned Reading:

M-girl: finished Cricket in Times Square before vacation, started Pumphrey's Pilgrim Stories sometime since.

N-boy:  finished The Storm by Cynthia Rylant.  I need to come up with something else at his level.

Math:

M-girl: did 3 lessons in math.  We did addition practice today and started to talk about units of measure.

N-boy: started working with adding groups of 10 and units together.

R-girl:worked on symmetry (mirror images), patterns, and grouping.  She started the Math Mammoth K pages and is doing very well.

N-boy: has been learning about seasons, months, what to capitalize and what to abbreviate.

N-boy: has been working on b.

R-girl: is still working in numbers, but didn't do these pages this week.

  1. Looks like a great week. I love that your daughter was able to read the directions herself--it's so much fun when the reading starts to click.
