Homeschool Weekly Wrap Up February 3, 2017

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 [easyazon_link identifier=”1513610139″ locale=”US” tag=”mommybabytool-20″]Washington~ Here We Come[/easyazon_link] 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 [easyazon_link identifier=”B00FLYWNYQ” locale=”US” tag=”mommybabytool-20″]Instant Pot[/easyazon_link] (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.


Linking up with….

Homeschool Coffee Break



  1. visiting from homeschool highlights. I write a wrap up for a few reasons… it’s a good way to keep track and it’s a good way to introduce others to some new curriculum or give insight into how you are using it that might be different than what others do. I like reading them as it’s a way to give kudos where needed and it’s fun to see what others are doing (most of the time).

    What do you like about the instant pot?

    1. Hi Annette. I agree. It’s a great way to look back and see what was accomplished and I too love reading how others get their homeschooling done.

      I love the Instant Pot (too strong a word?) mostly because it lets me make flavorful meals in a fraction of the time. You can make one pot meals really fast. Soup in 6 minutes (not including warm up time). If I forget to thaw something out I can put one of my myfreezeasy meals in there (another great love) and voila! I always wanted a pressure cooker but was afraid of them. I took a chance on this after seeing it in action on a cooking show.

  2. Looks like a lot of fun in your homeschool week. I miss playdough as all of my kids are teens. Stopping over from the Homeschool Highlights link up. Have a wonderful week.

  3. Good luck with learning about cats and kittens and then getting one! And I hope she does the work of looking after it. LOL Thanks for linking your week at Homeschool Highlights!

    1. LOL! Thank you. We did have two cats for 17 years but they died when she was still very young so she has very few memories of them. Hubby and I know what we are getting in to.
