Eight weeks?! I was sure we had only finished seven, but last week’s post informed me otherwise. Our semester is flying by.
This week, we started learning about matter in science. The kids built molecules out of Legos!
Emma continues to enjoy her math lessons. This week, she made her first graph! We graphed the number of boys and girls in our family.
She also got out some letter blocks and spelled some words!
She also wrote the word “Mom” on a picture she drew for me. Precious! I absolutely love teaching these early years!
We’ve been working with a new schedule for about two weeks now, and our days are going much more smoothly. Mornings are now our “together” subjects: Bible, music/art, and science/history. We also do math before heading out to our daily outing: jogging at the Y, story time at the library, or P.E. with friends. I’m trying to include more out-and-about activities for my incredibly social kids. After an outing, we come home for lunch and rest time. Next, I teach Vernon and Brooklyn’s language arts subjects. We finish the day with Emma’s school while the older two wrap up any unfinished work. This makes for a pretty long day, but the more intense studying is broken up with non-academic activities and some rest.
We’re headed into a busy weekend finishing up some projects before PJ heads to D.C. for a week!
Linking up with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers!
