Week review

math-competed another chapter (an easy one...mostly a review for him)

la-flying through English with one or two lessons a day, doing well with WW, the phonics workbook is a little tricky this week for him

science-doing a small unit study on human anatomy with the littles

reading-struggling a bit with his reading comp workbook a bit. He has been busy devouring The Charlie Bone books as well as reading several books on the American revolution.

history-see above. We will also start charting the different battles of the war soon.

geography-doing well. We have recently added state cards to the list. He simply has an index card to fill out about each state. I have an example card in the pile with all of the questions I want answered, five interesting facts that he can find himself, and on the back, a drawing of the state and one of the flag. Fun!!

religion-we stopped doing Seton's Religion 5. It was too much, I think. We have since found a gentler religion curriculum and are having better sucess with it. It is called We Believe. I think it is mostly used in a private school setting, but is working for us.

He is plugging along with ETC. He really likes it!!! (so glad)
Anatomy mini unit study
Working with the morning board and morning folder every morning!! love it!
We will start a weekly letter unit study next week. I started a seperate blog for that. It is mostly for Gabriel as Kaleb already knows the alphabet, but there are a lot of fun crafty things that he will want to do too.

Loving the morning board and folder too!! Last night he said that he couldn't wait to get up in the morning and do more school work!
He will also be participating in the letter unit study.

Good week!! My husband has out of town on business this week so its been a bit of a challenge for me. We accomplished a lot though!!


  1. Sounds like you guys had a productive week! I love your breakfast board too, it makes me wish mine were little enough for one. ;-)

  2. Sounds like an excellent week. Happy Weekend.

  3. Sounds like a busy week and not boring at all.

  4. I like your state cards idea!
