It’s Friday late afternoon and I’m writing a post about how our homeschool week has gone. I don’t generally do these posts because I kinda wonder…who cares?
But in case you want to look into the life of a boring homeschooler here it is.
We’re all feeling 100x better this week so our schedule has been back to normal.
In Social Studies we’re learning about Chinese culture and land. The Sweet Peanut made a relief map this week. She just has to make a key and she’s done. She got to use clay so she was VERY happy. Tactile girl.
In Science it’s been all over the animal kingdom this week. Another item right up her alley. We’ve been talking about getting a kitten/cat so I’m thinking of how to get some education (besides how often to scoop the litter) in there.
In Math it’s geometry. I check each day’s work so I can catch any areas where she has problems. She has told me that math is her favorite subject (say what?!). We’re also reviewing Times Alive so expect a review on that next week.
In English class she is writing a set of instructions. She chose how to make a play dough hamburger and is having fun testing out her own instructions. She makes it quite a bit differently than I would but that’s the beauty of it. It’s interesting watching this come to fruition.
In Reading class BJUPress had cute a production of Taming of the Shrew. I love their little productions. Something fun to watch during the school day.
We had royally slipped up on our goal to get up early this week but rallied today on Friday with both the Sweet Peanut and I getting up with papa (who leaves at an unholy hour). She helped me tidy the house this morning and we’re able to have a more relaxed day instead of playing catch up.
We’re reading Washington~ Here We Come which is giving us some great ideas about some local attractions we can visit.
My Old Schoolhouse Magazine came in this week. They list so many good resources and all kinds of great articles for those homeschooling or considering homeschooling.
Dinner is in the Instant Pot (seriously you HAVE to get one of these) and I must continue my lessons on that avenue.
If you want something lovely and free to bless your marriage Jamie Balmet of YoungWifesGuide has managed to create freebie for you. It’s 14 Days of Praying for Your Spouse. I say managed because she just gave birth to a little girl in addition to being the mom of 2 sets of twins. Wow Jamie!
Well I hope you have a good weekend and a good rest from school.
