Weekly Report-Week 31 Sonlight Core C

Thanks to some steriods my poison ivy is healing and we had a much better week! Princess is even back to sitting on my lap at read-aloud time. I have spent the week trying to figure out our summer plans. We will do light school, probably some reading, basic math and an unit study I'm putting together. It has been a fun process but I want to make sure that princess also has time to enjoy the summer! Anyways, here's our week in review...

LA: Princess is working her way through the HOP blue book and doing well. We did a reading assement test since I hadn't done one in about six months and I was curious. She is reading at a second grade level! I was so surprised. We had a few bumps in the road at the beginning and I knew that her reading had really taken off, I just didn't realize she was doing that well. I had to share because I am so proud of all the hard work she has done!

Math: We are almost finished the 1A workbook again. Princess is doing great! We have been working more with manipulatives and this time I am sure that she understands. I haven't decided if we are going to start 1B again or just camp out and work on learning her math facts this summer and start 1B in the fall. I'm leaning towards the latter.

Core C: This week we went back to the desert and I am glad that it is over. Although princess did enjoy Wild Places, it wasn't my favorite. We also started House at Pooh Corner which has been enjoyable to read. I'm looking forward to what's going to happen next!

Science: We spent the week finishing our study of the seasons. Today we finished a book about the clothes we wear in different seasons. I'd love to share it will you, but princess said, no pictures of it on the blog! It's really cute though, she put wings on the person in the summer because that's when we see the most butterflies. So instead I'll share another butterfly picture from our DC trip.

Hope you had a great week, thanks for reading about ours! Blessings...

Sounds great!! I'm tossing around what to do this summer too. I want the boys to have lots of fun outside time but also keep in the mode of learning. I'm leaning towards something on Knights/Knighthood and then just math skills. Beautiful butterfly picture!

Great week!

Don't you just love it when you take pictures of something (anything) and the kids say, "Don't put that on the blog" or "That's ok to put on the blog", etc. They are so grown up. :o)

Beautiful butterfly picture!

Glad to hear it's cleared up! What a relief for you.

And what a gorgeous butterfly. :)
