Weekly Report--8/11/08-8/15/08


What a great week! Princess was so happy to start full school again, she's having fun and so am I. Here's our week in review...


LA: We finished And I Mean it Stanley and started Dick and Jane: Away we go. Her reading is getting better, which was this years goal. All About Spelling and First Language Lessons are both going well. Princess is starting to realized that copywork is just like hanwriting practice and the novelty has worn off.


Math: We wrapped up addition within 100 and will begin subtraction next week.



History: We talked about archaeology and started talking about the first nomads. We are really enjoying SOTW, the style is so easy to read and understand. To the right is a picture of the first few pages of our history notebook that we completed this week.


Read-Aloud: Charlotte's Web is going well, Wilbur just found out his friend is a spider. I loved this book as a child so it has been alot of fun to share it with princess.


Science: We finished animal behavior and started animal habitats. Next week we will make a habitat diorama then we will to put the animals we study in there. I can't wait to share the pictures of that next week!


Extras: Here's a look at the art project we did this week. It was a still life that focused on looking at the lines of different objects. Princess's was a little more interpretive, but I'm very pleased with how the projects came out.


Hope you had a great week too, be sure to check on my Education of Me update below.

I'm sure the diorama will be lots of fun-I look forward to seeing that.
My youngest absolutely loves Charlotte's Web. When we finished it she said "I wish we were on the first page again."

Great week! I love the Archaeology book drawing. :)

I hope your move went ok. I can't imagine trying to get school going and moving too, although that's probably what will happen for us next summer.
