Week 18 in our Homeschool
P.E.: We did two days of yoga this week. Monday I was running behind and almost skipped it, but the girls had the mats all laid out so we went ahead and did our workout. I was glad we did. It's good to have someone to get you motivated!
Bible: We completed half of lesson 11 of Grapevine Old Testament One.
Read Aloud: We read 2 chapters of C.S. Lewis Master Storyteller.
History: In The Mystery of History Vol IV we covered lessons 46-48 on Excursions to the South Pole, World War 1 Part 1, and World War 1 Part 2. I have to say that one of the reasons that I love using The Mystery of History is that it doesn't focus on memorizing facts and dates but gives the stories behind the history. The author does an amazing job giving the facts but also making you realize that history is real and happened to real people. The boys completed the worksheets and map assignment, but we will have to get the memory cards and timeline figures completed next week.
Science: We skipped it.
My Father's World Adventures: We are still reading through Farmer Boy. In our state study we completed Vermont and Rhode Island. We did not do any science activities this week.
Math: Each child completed lesson 17 in their Math U See levels.
Grammar/Writing/Literature: We skipped Grammar this week. Christian and Anthony did a key word outline and paragraph on sheep using a who/which. an "ly" adverb, and a quality adjective. Nick started reading through the introductory information in Illuminating Literature on Peter Pan. Alex is still working on the book study of Farmer Boy in LLTL.
|My boys really liked this drag car activity in AAR|
Reading/Spelling: No spelling this week. In AAR Level 3 Anthony and Christian finished lessons 20 and 21. In AAR Level One Lily finished lesson 40.
Other Activities This Week
Monday : The girls had gymnastics.
Tuesday: We made an Ecosystem in a Bottle.

Wednesday: We had Kid's Club.
|They love the snack crafts|
Thursday: I had that dentist appointment. I did get to go have lunch with Art. It was the first time we have eaten alone together in close to a year!
A few pictures taken on Saturday. The boys were outside playing football. When Art was coming from the shop into the house he played with them for awhile.
I made this little outfit for Emmie. Every time the sewing machine stopped she asked if I was done yet!
I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
