Homeschool Wrap Up Week 35

We have officially completed the 2015/2016 school year!

That does not mean that school is finished for us.  School is never really finished ;)  We do take some breaks over the summer and are even more laid back then usual. We will continue doing some math and reading over the summer.  We also will have product reviews to work on.  Right now we have several fun review products that the children are really enjoying that are perfect for summer school.  I also have a few fun science activities.  Our weekly posts will change from counting the homeschool weeks to our week in review for the summer months.

Week 35 in our Homeschool

Bible: We are working on a review of Veritas Bible.  This gives us access for one year to three different Bible studies and I chose to start with Judges to Kings.  The children are really enjoying this study.  It is interactive and has different videos and games throughout each lesson.

My Father's World Adventures: We finished! In our history study we learned about The Flying Machine.  In our state study we completed New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii.  In science we read about electricity and the space program.  In Birds, Nests, and Eggs we read about White-breasted nuthatch, mourning dove, and the killdeer.

Art: We started a review of Art Achieve.  We did the warm up lesson (lesson 1) and a lesson called the Czech Cat (lesson 2.)  In these lessons that are taught by streaming video there is a warm up worksheet for the children to draw on.  They then draw their picture and color it in.  There are also cross curricular lesson suggestions on the website.

Math: We are finished with our current Math U See levels.  Over the summer we will be working on some areas that need improvement and everyone will be moving on to the next level next year.

Reading/Spelling: Anthony and Christian finished All About Reading Level 3!  Lily finished the lessons in the first volume of Level 2.

Nature Study: One of our reviews is for notebookingpages.com.  I printed out several nature themed pages for a nature study.  I printed out flowers for Lily and a page on gila monsters for Anthony and Christian.

Latin: We got the cutest books from Laurelwood Books to review. It is called Olim, Once Upon a Time in Latin Reader 1 and Workbook 1.  The reader has 3 stories: The Three Little Pigs, The Tortoise and the Hare, and The Crow and the pitcher in English and in Latin.  The workbook exercises has the children translating the words.  It is a great, low key, fun way to learn some Latin and words from English that came from Latin.

Other Activities this Week

We had no scheduled outside activities this week!  That was very nice!

We did go to the library on Wednesday and ran a few errands.

Our chickens turned two weeks old on Wednesday.

On Thursday the girls and I started working on their mermaid dolls.

Friday was my amazing husbands birthday.  We met him for lunch and went grocery shopping.

I noticed that these were growing in our garden.

And this was our ecosystem in a bottle.  It has grown a lot!

I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
