Weekly Report: 11/14/2011-11/18/2011
We're done! We're done, we're done, we're done, we're done! Did I mention we're done for the year? Yippee! Now for Yuletide Session. I'm planning on a year end wrap up and a Yuletide Session 2011 psot.
R-girl: learned about to, too, and two today. NB: (we'll keep working on phonics with her over Yuletide Session because 1) she's this close to reading and 2) I don't want her to lose her progress.)
M-girl: is working on Pilgrim Stories.
N-boy: read several different Thanksgiving books this week.
M-girl: worked on adding up to 18s. I love how MEP started introducing multiplication here with two sets of 9, three sets of 6, etc. She already knows multiplication is coming and kinda what it means ... this just wets her whistle :)
N-boy: finished through lesson 140
R-girl: we did some more work with size and shapes and matching. She is absolutely ready for MEP Y1 in January. I was a little concerned earlier in the year, but she has matured and grown so much. MEP Reception was great and the other free work we did after convinced me.
M-girl: lots of Qwirkle
N-boy: lots of Uno and Qwirkle
M-girl: finished lessons through a friendly letter in FLL2. Heads up, for Miss Patricia :)
N-boy: finished Lesson 81 about capitalizing titles of poetry. He had his first copywork today, just to get ready for next year.
M-girl: we got through Week 21 in WWE1. I'm a little disappointed here with not finishing or getting close, but I'm thrilled with the improvement in M-girl's writing.
M-girl: finished through half of Level C.
M-girl: did none this week. Reviewed flash cards with a friend.
M-girl: did a review page.
N-boy: erm. Gotta get working on this.
R-girl: see N-boy ...
History: worked with our History Sentences, discussed AD/BC versus CE/BCE.
Science: reviewed our memory work.
Art: no art party this week. Was totally not ready for it.
Read Alouds: I'm hoping to finish Mary Poppins tomorrow, but don't think it's going to happen. We've read a good bit this week, though.
Bible: Psalm 100 needs a lot of polishing. We may work on that next week.
