Homeschool Wrap Up Week 20

 Monday morning I was thinking out loud and said something like, "What should we start with this week?" Christian said we should take a hike.  Well, that sounds like a great idea, there is a trail not far from here I would like to hike, but....Emmie has a broken toe, the weather was not fabulous, and Nick woke up not feeling well.  He stayed home from his class at school Monday and Tuesday and was much better Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, but was worse again Saturday and Sunday.  I hope he feels better by tomorrow.  Anyway, that hike may have to wait a couple of weeks.....

Bible: We are continuing our study of Know Who You Are, Live Like it Matters.

Poetry: We started working on a new poem called First Snow by Marie Louise Allen.

Read Aloud: We read 4 chapters of Off the Edge of the Map. 

Apparently listening to me read put Liam to sleep.

Geography: This week in geography our country of study was Tanzania.

History: We watched the last two episodes of Drive Thru History, American History and read Chapter 22 of America's Story on The Industrial Revolution.

Science: We built and started driving an R2D2 robot kit I bought called Little Bits Droid Inventor Kit.

Art: We did the Owl from Bali from ArtAchieve.

Math: They did 4 lessons in MLFLE except for Christian who did several pages in his Math Mammoth workbook.

Language Arts: They finally finished reading Charlotte's Web, but still have several lessons to complete on the book.  Lily did 4 lessons in daily grammar.

Spelling/Reading: The boys completed step 2 in AAS Level 5.  Lily completed lesson 19 in AAR Level 4 and Emmie completed lesson 34 in AAR Level 1.

Other Activities this Week:
Tuesday Lily went to gymnastics.  Emmie sat and watched and watched  a movie on my phone.

Wednesday we had Kid's Club.

Thursday Lily had piano.  And then it was the day Emmie has been waiting for forever!  The first day of Ballet.  It went well even with a broken toe.  She did fine and did not complain of anything bothering her even though a few times earlier in the week she had some cramps in her toe. She and Lily both had a good time.

Friday after grocery shopping we went and seasoned meat for the 4 H BBQ Bowl fundraiser.

Spring is coming and hopefully all the sickness will leave with winter weather!
