Wrapping Up Schoolwork for Christmas Break

The public schools here got finished last Thursday, so my kids were grumbling a bit about having to work this week. I reminded them that we don't follow the public school schedule and if they wanted to we would start and work 5 days a week for 6 hours a day. They like my schedule better :). The reason we continued to work this week is that we are taking a few days off the week of New Year's to go see my mom and dad for "Christmas." Nick and Alex decided that they wanted to get all of their work done Monday and Tuesday, so they doubled up and got it done. Chelsea had a bit more to do, but all she has left to finish up today is a book report. This is what we have been working on for the last couple of weeks:

1,3 (with some 5 and 3 yo tag alongs)

Bible-Enjoying God's Gifts-review to come soon
Math-Abeka - Alex is measuring and adding and subtracting. Nick is multiplying and dividing with remainders. Nick is having a bit of trouble with remainders. His mind wants every Math problem to come out evenly.
Math Facts Now-review to come soon
Times Alive-review to come soon
Handwriting-copywork
Reading-Abeka reading program for 3rd grade, Dr Seuss for 1st grade
Science-Abeka 3rd Grade Science I'm planning on taking a break from this for awhile and doing a lapbook from www.homeschoolshare for a few weeks. Topic to still be decided
History-We just finished up Time Travelers Revolutionary War CD and completed our lapbook. In January we will start using Abeka's 3rd grade History
Spanish-Speekee TV-review to come soon

9th grade

Home Ec-sewing project completed-cooking next semester
Math- Algebra -Tenmarks (review to come soon)
Bible, Science, Geography, Literature, Spanish-Abeka- Truthfully not my favorite curriculum, but it was free and Chelsea really likes it which is important
Every other week we pick a book off of Sonlight's reading list and do a book report. next semester Chelsea will pick a topic for a research paper. She really needs more practice on long term projects and managing her time.
