Weekly Review and Book Haul

This week we have continued our study of Greece and the Olympics. Thanks to a suggestion from a homeschool mom on Twitter, we have been using our globe to locate countries, we have heard about while watching the Olympics. We have slowed history down in order to spend more time on Greece and mythology.

We finished Singapore's extra workbook 1A in math. I am still not happy with his basic math facts so we will continue to work on them and continue on to workbook 1B.

We spent a good deal of our week working on handwriting, this is his most difficult subject. He does not like handwriting and resists practicing all the time. This week for practice I would make a letter and then have him try to copy. The game was to make them look so close to mine Dad would not be able to tell who wrote what. It worked fairly well, he thought is was a little fun. As we practiced we talked about exactly how you made each letter.

I had a book haul for this week. I went to to order 1 book, D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths. I ended up ordering 9 books in total, the 4 for 3 book deal amazon has is to tempting. We now have the following books to read:

1. D'aulaires' Book of Greek Myths
2. Bible Wars and Weapons
3. Treasure Island
4. Let's Go Geocaching ( a project Dad and LittleBit are starting this spring)
5. Secrets of the Mummies
6. Pirates Raiders of the High Seas
7. Robin Hood
8. Secrets of Atlantis
9. Writing Practice workbook.
