Wrap-up Week 26

Did you know that if we followed the 180 day school year with the school district, we would be finished in 10 weeks?!?!  That would put us at the end of February beginning of March.  I think we will keep plugging away until May...with a few days off here and there :)

This week the kids worked on the following lessons:

MATH:  Played yahtzee and trouble also did a few chapters in Life of Fred - Cats.

READING:  The kids read books of their choosing and told back what they read or drew a picture of their favorite part of the book they read.

COPY WORK:  The kids are doing great!! I am so thankful we switched copy work curriculum and the kids are much happier.

SCIENCE:  We read about cells this week.  Funny how lessons sometimes intertwine with life.  We read The Lemonade Club by Patricia Polacco and it referred to cancer, which brought up a conversation about cells.  Not planned lessons are great!

DELIGHT DIRECTED:  Mostly the kids played, but today both Nick and Sam made pumpkin bread with Sam's little easy bake oven.  Their idea and boy did they have fun working together!!!

To end our week of lessons, Scott took us out to a late lunch/early dinner tonight.  On our way to dinner we saw a full rainbow!  I have never seen one in December and neither had the kids.  Such a special moment that we were able to share.  I just wished I had our camera.
