Nick and Alex completed lesson 10 of SWI A and Anthony and Christian finished part 2 of PAL. In History we have gotten through 48 lessons of America the Beautiful. In Science we completed lesson 5 of Land Animals on Marsupials. Anthony and Christian finished Lesson 19 of All About Spelling Level One and the second reader The Runt Pig of All About Reading. Alex finished Lesson 24 of AAS Level 3 and finished reading aloud The Bears on Hemlock Mountain. Everyone is on different lessons in the levels of Math U See math, but they all finished the lesson they were working on.
Lily did the letter "Q" this week, and her Emmie and I read Angus Lost for Before Five In A Row and completed a lapbook from www.homeschoolshare.com. We enjoyed reading about Angus, and Lily was thrilled when she discovered her new shirt had a dog on it that looked just like Angus!
We had an opportunity to go to a Christmas potluck that our local homeschool group was having. There were 50 people there! Not bad for a small town and several of our regular families were not able to be there. The first year of our homeschool group we had a Christmas potluck and 14 people came.
We also made our gingerbread house this week. Every year we buy a gingerbread house kit and the children decorate it. I didn't think I would be able to find one this year, but I finally did. I think it turned out great!
We are off of school until January 2nd.
I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
