It has been truly a light work week here! It was so welcomed and we enjoyed learning every bit as we had much more time with just us. I always wondered how our school week would feel like if I wasn't working at the same time. Let's just say by Wednesday we were missing our preschool friends. The whole dynamic of me working while they are schooling plays a major role that we have come to appreciate. They love sharing their lessons and helping just as much as I do! I guess since they have grown up this way this is just what they are use to. The weather was too cold to enjoy some winter fun, hopefully this weekend we can take advantage of the snow and go sledding:) We are definetly going to make it to the library since we having gone in over a month, this is a long time for us.
We changed our morning routine a bit by doing Bible Study first instead of reading.
It worked well except we will have to change it to the afternoon because Michelle will like to join in. Michelle leaves for school in the mornings and returns back at 12:30 so we will be doing Bible Study after lunch. A positive change I must say because if she wants to be a part of Bible Study that is a good thing!
Language Arts was very exciting this week as they delved deeper into their work inspired by The Story of Writing.
They loved learning the first steps in Chinese Brush Painting.
We reread and read a lot out of the books A Little History of Our World" By Gombrich and Ox, House, Stick: The History of the Alphabet by Don Robb. They also took a spelling quiz given by each other using words from the All About Spelling program level 5.
Math was full of Binomial equations, Division and From Drawing was added in as well.
Montessori For Everyone with detailed explanations on how to do this work.
They both worked on divisibility rules by playing this fun game from here.
In order to make a touch down they had to answer the problems correctly the other player checks it by using a calculator, the amount of yards you move if they answer was correct was determined by the Yard Card you pulled. Fun stuff !
Here are other activities that I was happy to capture on camera too.
And of course they have been trying to figure out more ways to make more money with their Popcorn business,
