Weekly Review 9/14-18
We took a field trip to Van Hoosen Farm Museum on Thursday. The kids were able to experience what life was like for children living on a farm in the olden days. Photos above - I also have friends' photos in the mix. It was easier to do it that way than to clean and sort the photos:) My kids are the ones with the matching haircuts, LOL.
Monday was a school day plus a Writing Workshop for homeschool parents that evening. Tuesday was Georgyana's last eye dr appt for a long time - her premature eyes are now fully developed, and she won't need to see an eye dr for 6 months! Wednesday was our dog's grooming appt (so 2 full trips - back and forth - phew!!), Georgyana's 4mth checkup, and AWANA night. It was a full day in the car. Thursday was the field trip. Friday was the vet appt and a quick trip to the library, and then school. We had 2 days of book work and 1 field trip = 3 days of school this week.
In Math, the 8yo finished the chapter on telling time, and started measurement (ounces/pounds). In English, she practiced past-tense verbs. She did 2 reading assignments and Familiar Quotation copywork assignments this week. For Writing, she wrote her own narration of the Aesop story, the Fox and the Grapes.
In Math, she worked on measurements (cups/pints/quarts/gallons), and inches. In Reading, she read about Billy Sunday and practiced comprehension and the aw sound in her workbook. She is continuing cursive handwriting with a review section in the book. In English, she is learning about nouns, and plural nouns.
