Homeschool Wrap Up Week 3

*this post contains affiliate links

This week was a bit more productive in our homeschool.  And we are starting to cut back on several outside activities because we have had to, but honestly we needed to.  I just can't keep up the pace right now.  We added in a few more subjects this week and hopefully will be up to a full schedule next week.

Week 3 In Our Homeschool

Bible: We completed Weeks 2 and 3 in our Bible study on the Books of Moses Part 1, not because I am in a hurry or trying to catch up but because there just isn't a whole lot of comprehension questions or activities to go with the study so It doesn't take us long to complete it at all.

Read Aloud: We are still reading through George Muller for our morning read aloud.  I also do evening read alouds before bed and read a picture book and a chapter book every night.

History: Nick and Alex got started on The Mystery of History Vol IV.  We read through the first 3 lessons and did the corresponding notebooking worksheets and mapping assignment.  I did not have the timeline ready but we will add this week's figures along with next week's.

Math: We did get back to Math U See this week.  Lesson 2 was competed in Alpha, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, and Algebra 1.

Grammar: Lesson 7 was competed in Fix It! Grammar 1 and 2.

Reading/Spelling: Lily got started on All About Reading Level 1.  She completed lessons 1 and 2.  Christian and Anthony completed Lessons  of All About Reading Lesson 2.  Alex started on the Phonetic Zoo Level B lesson 1.

Language: Anthony completed 4 lessons of Middlebury Interactive Elementary Spanish.

Other Activities This Week:

Monday: We did not make it on the zoo field trip that we planned, but since we have passes I am hoping we will be able to make it there some time soon.

Monday night Lily and Emmie had their first gymnastics class of the year.

And Christian had his first soccer game.

Tuesday: Nick and Alex had their first soccer game.

Wednesday: I had been feeling a little better and thought I would take the children to Kids Club.  It was not a good idea.  I had another mystery spell while driving but thankfully we were almost there and made it safely.  I hung out on the couch in the parlor at church and Art had to pick us up and drive us home.

Thursday: Christian, Alex, and Nick had soccer games.  I stayed home with the other three children.

Friday: We did not go to archery.  I think we will be sitting that out for awhile.  It was our first Grandview co-op of the year.  I decided to stay home, but Emmie, Lily, Christian and Anthony got to go and made some corn husk dolls while learning about the Caddo Indians.

My dad got some good news after his PET scan.  The cancer is only on his epiglottis and larynx, no place else in the body.  He will have radiation 5 days a week for 7 weeks.

I hope you had a great week in your homeschool, but if you didn't remember His mercies are new every morning!
