Another busy week in our homeschool completed!
This week in history we learned all about the 60's. We are still reading Homer Price but should finish that book up tomorrow. The younger children read about Christopher Columbus. In science we started studying the chapter in Land Animals about Arachnids. We had a great hands on science day at Grandview the other day and completed a folder on reptiles for our Animal Classification lapbook. Chelsea finished up her labs for her Physical Science course.
We hatched one chick and bought a few others to keep her company.
We received our Apologia What On Earth Can I Do? on Wednesday and got to do the first lesson of it on Thursday during our Bible time.
Nick and Alex both started a Progeny Press Literature Guide this week. Alex is reading The Door in the Wall and Nick is reading The Giver.
The children got to paint their slab sculptures. Well most of them anyway. Emelia decided to stack them all up on the table when I was getting the paint supplies out and broke Alex's and a part of one of the other children's. I don't think I even got a picture of them painting as I was cleaning up broken clay. My fault for leaving them on the table.
Anthony and Christian completed another lesson in Essentials. Alex completed his next lesson in All About Spelling Level 4. We are still working on finishing his read aloud: The Cabin Faced West.
Anthony is learning double digit subtraction in Math with borrowing and had a bit of a hard time with it this week, so we will be working more on that same lesson this week. Alex started triple digit multiplication and had a really hard time with it. I think it is because he has a hard time keeping his numbers lined up. I reminded him on Thursday of Math U See suggestion to turn lined paper sideways to help keep his numbers lined up and that seemed to help him.
The four youngest children colored Easter Eggs on Saturday. They had a great time!
I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
