Weekly Review–Week 18

We have been busy with school this week.  It is almost time for our winter break and I have my list of things to get finished before then. 

We started division this week!  His only question was when did he get to start algebra and geometry.  I wanted to say NEVER!  I did tell him he had to learn his multiplication tables first. 

I am surprised by how much he is liking Easy Grammar. We are working on prepositions.  I found a daily calendar journal on pinterest and he loves it.  Everyday you fill out the date, tally marks, day and draw a picture of the weather for the day.

My Pinterest Homeschool Board

This week I started working on my Disney World planning notebook and Kiddo wanted to make his own planner.  He drew a front cover and chose a graphic for the back cover. He wanted to include chapter with the maps to all the parks, a map and photo of the hotel we are staying and note paper.  After he organized it in the order he wanted we took it to Kinkos and had it bound.  Seeing how much fun he had making his own book I am going to look into getting a spiral binding machine for home. It would be a great way to begin journaling and book reports.

Weekly Review - 17

I have a very fast update for this week. There is no review we have both been sick with a virus that turned into a wicked head cold for the both of us.  Kiddo is still under the weather and may get a trip to the doctors this week.

Other than endless games of Wheel of Fortune on Wii (could count as spelling or problem solving right?)  and reading we did nothing this week. 

I have been working hard on our to get finished by the December list.  We take the month of December off for the holidays.  In December we will keep doing a little math and a unit study of the meaning of Christmas.  I learned the hard way a whole month off with no school at all makes January very hard on everybody. Doing just a little on top of reading along with crafts helps make getting back to a full schedule in January easier. 


Have a great week!  We will be very busy getting to the end of our semester.
