Wrap-up Week 25

This week ended up being very successful!!! The following are the lessons that the kids worked on:

MATH:  In the mornings, the kids played Yahtzee (to practice addition and number sequence) and dice math.  In the afternoon, after I got home from work, the kids and I worked on lessons from Life of Fred - Cats.

COPY WORK:  This week the kids started working in new workbooks...Book C Basic and Cursive Italic.  So far so good.  I really like the exercises and how they are helping the kids work independently.  At the end of the lessons, they are asked to grade themselves. 

READING:  For reading this week, the kids had to read a book daily and either tell Scott about what they read or draw a picture about their favorite part of the book.

SCIENCE:  This week we also started Christian Kids Explore: Biology.  We only worked on Chapter 1: The Creation, so it is too early to tell how this is going.  After a few more chapters, I will write a bit more.

READ ALOUD:  We finally finished The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. 

DELIGHT DIRECTED:  Computer time, knitting (Samantha), playing with Lego, and helping with the cooking.

MISC:  Along with lessons, I had the kids do some specific chores this week...obviously they had to make their beds, get dressed, and brush their teeth.  They also had to make sure their rooms were cleaned up daily.

The schedule that I made for the kids helped a lot, especially for me!
