Last week was one of those weeks where the kids completed their school work, but it was still a crazy week. The kids have all come down with colds and are in different stages of it. We did take Thursday off as a sick day and I did some fun crafting stuff. It was a nice day off – I needed it as much as they did!
MATH: The boys each completed a lesson in their books and Grace did a unit test and some review the rest of the week.
GRAMMAR: Nathan completed his adjective review and did an adjective test. He had to retake his test because I wasn’t happy with his first score. He did ok the 2nd time.
SPELLING: Nathan did section S-3 and missed only one word on his test. Ryan and Grace worked on their word list (K-1) from the previous week and took the test on Friday. They did much better the 2nd time. We did a lot of fun review on their word list and that definitely helped!
EXPLODE THE CODE: Grace finished up her books 2 and 2 1/2 and is waiting on her new ones. Ryan is working through his books and doing ok. I definitely need to have him read more outloud to me, but he’s doing ok. Working with Ryan is ever so slow, but we want to be thorough.
HISTORY: We read a couple lessons last week, but didn’t have anything extra or exciting to go along with them.
SCIENCE: Pretty much a bust last week. Nathan was the only one that accomplished anything in his Creation or Evolution book. Ryan and Grace did a craft with leaves – making animals. Grace actually didn’t finish hers, but Ryan made a dinosaur. I made a cute little owl. 🙂
ART: The kids had some drawing sessions on their own last week. They are such good doodlers.
MUSIC: We didn’t do anything in music last week. With headcolds I thought it wise not to get out the recorders.
PHYS. ED.: Monday night the kids roller skated for 2 hours. They had a great time! The kids also went to their cousin’s house Tues., Wed., and Sat. and had hours of nerf enjoyment. They love running around playing for hours and hours.
BIBLE: Last week the kids learned about Forgiveness and memorized Ephesians 4:32. I’ve also been reading them more stories about Solomon Lapp. That is their new favorite devotional/story book.
It was a good week, for the most part. This week has started off with a bang – hahahaha. Yeah, it’s been a rough morning so far. I’m hoping the rest of the week goes better than today.
