Wrap-up Week 21

Last week we took a break and started back up this week with the following lessons:

MATH:  The kids are continuing with Life of Fred - Butterflies and worked on chapters 7 - 12.  They have a few more chapters left and then onto Life of Fred - Cats.  We are really enjoying this curriculum and I personally love how the kids are learning more than math.

COPY WORK:  I have had the kids copy work sentences and I made up for them.  So far, I have had Nickolas re-do one sentence.  He was not very happy about the re-do, but he did it and realized that when he does take his time, he does better.

READING:  The kids have continued to read library books and have also listened to "Flat Stanley" too.

READ ALOUD:  We finished The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.  What a fantastic story!!!  I don't know who enjoyed it most :) 

We are currently reading The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster.  We hope to finish by next week.  Any suggestions for our next read aloud?

DELIGHT DIRECTED:  Computer time, reading, playing with legos, drawing, helping dad with mommy's chevy.

LANGUAGE ARTS:  Nick and I started working in his Yellow Book from the Language Arts Through Literature curriculum.  We haven't worked in it since July.  It was good to get back into the lessons today.
