Homeschool Wrap Up Week 8

Week 8 in Our Homeschool

P.E.- We did lessons 32-35 in Family Time Fitness.  I am trying to stay consistent with this.  We do not do every activity listed in the lesson but we do at least part of the warm up, activities, and cool down every day.

Bible: We did lesson 3 in Grapevine Studies Old Testament Part One.

History: Nick and Alex did lessons 16, 17, and 18 in Mystery of History Vol IV on Beethoven, The Mexican War of Independence, and the War of 1812.  The boys did the corresponding worksheets, made memory cards, added the timeline figures to the board and did the map assignment.  We also listened to some Beethoven.

Science: Nick and Alex reviewed the chapter on muscles in Exploring Creation With Anatomy and Physiology and completed the What Do You Remember questions.

My Father's World Adventures: I doubled up one day this week to catch up from our day off last week that we were at the Family Farm.  This week we talked about the Pilgrim's in our history lesson. We finished reading Squanto Friend of the Pilgrims and did an activity showing why the Pilgrims put oiled paper in their windows.  In science we are learning about stars.

Math: Lesson 7 completed in Alpha, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, and Algebra 1.
Christian made this while I was reading aloud

Grammar/Literature/Handwriting: Completed Lesson 12 of Fix It! 1 and 2.  Nick finished Pudd'nhead Wilson and will move on to War of the Worlds.  Alex is still working on Stone Fox.  Anthony and Christian have started working back in their PenTime Copywork Books, since we finished our review of Brookdale House.  I need to get one ordered for Lily.

Reading/Spelling: Alex completed Lesson 6 of Phonetic Zoo.  Christian and Anthony started using All About Spelling Level 2 again.  We are reviewing and completed the word list for step 2.  They finished lessons 48 and 49 of AAR Level 2.  Lily finished lessons 12,13, and 14 of AAR Level One.
Lily loves her reader from AAR and rereads the stories after she reads them to me

Horizon's Preschool: Emmie and I did get some work done in her Preschool books.  She has now completed up to lesson 32 in Horizon's Preschool.  We started learning about soil this week in science and have learned up to the number 7 and the letter j.

Other Activities:

It was a pretty quiet week.

Monday night the girls had gymnastics.  After gymnastics, Christian had his last game of the soccer season.  Soccer is officially over for us this year!


Tuesday we didn't have any outside activities.
Christian loves stick bugs

Wednesday we had Kid's Club.

Thursday Lily woke up with a sore throat and a headache.  No fever.  Just like Anthony had the week-end before.  I gave her some medicine and she ate breakfast.  At 9:00 I found her sleeping on the couch.  She started feeling better on Friday but still today she has a sore throat.

Friday: It rained! I can't remember the last time we have had rain.  In the afternoon the children went out and played in the light rain for awhile.  We watched movies and played some board games.

Our dog seems to be better.  We have started mixing some canned food into her dry food.  I stopped giving her the medication on Wednesday and she has not been sick again so hopefully she is past it.  We did loose a rabbit this week.  The children had been playing with her on Saturday and it was fine but found it dead on Monday.

After we did the weaving activity at Grandview, it reminded me of when I was a little girl and used to make potholders.  I found a kit on Amazon and ordered it.  Since then Lily and Christian have been pot holder making machines!  We picked up more craft loops on Thursday and they have been through all of those too!

I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
