The kids really showed a lot of enthusiasm in "school" this week. Everything went just how I visioned it !! They enjoyed working with their new choices and I loved every minute of it. I took as many pictures that I could so I could savor the moments for those days that may not be so great. Take a look.
They remain focused and committed to their project work.
Building Legos and computer programming
Math has been welcomed by all three of them. They are building their confidence and letting go of previous bad experiences. The kiddos are embracing the new ways and looking forward to new lessons.
We read the first story in our Great Lesson book and they are really into it. The questions are all over the place. DJ is wondering how to make water!! Ken is figuring out if it is really true if it all started from just a speck. Michelle wants to know what happens to us when we all die. Lots of questions, and much research is going on. Stay tuned!!
We started our Latin lessons this week. Latin for Children turned out to be too advanced for DJ and Ken, but just right for Michelle. Ken and DJ suggested going back to Song School Latin, this time with the writing assignments. I think they got the big picture of where Latin can take you and now are serious enough to master some lessons, after all they want to be doing what Big Sis is doing and are willing to do some work to get there. Michelle has taken off with this program and has made a series of recordings. Michelle gave me permission to share the video below. I am so happy that Michelle enjoys this, she plans to be a Doctor, and this will definitely help her it turned out to my favorite resource this week.
Write Shop turns out to be great fit for Ken and DJ.
Michelle continued writing her book, and did LOTS of language work involving Latin lessons.
They also worked on quite a few reviews in the evening.Well that pretty much sums up the school week for us. Next week will be adding in more subjects.
How was your week? Any surprises? Let me know in the comments I would love to read about it.
