Wow, 4 weeks already into the new year and to be honest, it does not seem it has been that long.
The kids have been working on their perspective math and spelling workbooks/worksheets. I heard a few grumblings, but they forged ahead and completed what was put before them.
Samantha has an interest in animals and I have been wanting to get back into unit studies. Fortunately for both of us, Amanda Bennett's Unit Studies are a click away. This week, Nick and Sam learned about some Astonishing Animals. We finished up the study this morning and we all learned something new about Aye-Aye's, Komodo Dragons, Loggerhead Sea Turtles, Adelie Penguins, and Wolverines. The unit study was a success and my kids asked what the next one will be. I clicked on a few Download-N-Go's that I had already purchased and they chose Terrific Tigers for our next Unit Study.
Nick has been drawing a lot...he is always drawing...this week. Sam has been reading and playing with her stuffies. Also, because of the beautiful weather we have been experiencing, the kids have been outside everyday riding their bikes and running around. Today, they had Spanish Story Time at the library and visited with the wonderful librarians.
All in all...another great week of learning :)
