We had another good week, just about as good as I could have hoped for with all our little “interruptions” lol. Poor ds4 had to have an infected tooth pulled, I had a long awaited doctor’s appointment and dh and I celebrated 23 years of marriage this week. We did still manage to fit some school in there somewhere. ;)
Ds3 is testing out a combination writing/language arts program that I am going to review and he is still enjoying it. This week we covered the four types of sentences and played a fun game where I wrote the sentence types on index cards and taped them to four different walls in the house. I read sentences to ds and he had to run to the wall with the correct card. He missed a few but caught on quickly and I had to find more sentences so he could play longer lol. I am thinking this will be our permanent language arts resource.
Ds4 and I are both still loving First Language Lessons for his language arts. The pic above shows some of the nouns he remembered from a story we read. He drew a cottage, bird, egg and forest (though he said the bird looks like a banana lol.) And he seems to like the new Math Mammoth workbook we started…only I also received two new math programs for him to review lol. We will be a little math heavy for a while. :)
We are starting to see the light at the end of the school year tunnel. We finish up at the end of May, take off June and July and start right back up the beginning of August. A lot of other homeschoolers are already making plans and buying resources for “next year.” I’m kinda sorta thinking about maybe doing the same. I should probably finish the lesson planning for this year first lol. We are taking a week off but I’m not sure how much planning I will get done. Ds2 has FCAT testing for two days and I have an endoscopy scheduled to see if we can finally figure out why I haven’t been able to eat much. Fun, fun, fun! Ah well, at least as homeschoolers we are able to change our schedule as needed. :)
