Weekly Report 11/3-11/7

We had a busy Friday and a busy day today, so I'm just getting time to put this up! Let's just say that things are about to change here in the next months and this is something that I am very excited about! As I can, I will share more details with you all. That said, here's a look at our week...

Language Arts: Tabitha read Sammy the Seals and a Fancy Nancy book this week. We spent a second week on Step 12 of AAS and I'm not sure that this is working for us right now. I think that we are going back to finish an Explode the Code book to give me some time to really think this over and decide where I want to go and what will work best with princess's learning style.

Math: Princess was doing well with subtraction with and without renaming, so I threw in a few addition with renaming problems towards the end of the week. She seemed to take it in stride. So I'm going to go ahead with my plans to give her an end of the unit test around the middle of next week. Then on to length!

Science: We spent another week on birds and princess has decided that it's not fair that the males have more colors than the females. She believes that the girls should be prettier! Here's a look at how our food charts are going. The chart and the animals are all a part of my science program, Biology for the Grammar Stage.

History: We finished the chicken mummy this week, here's the post about that. We also studied Moses and the Exodus this week and made a book about the ten plagues. Princess is still enjoying our history study.

Others: We began reading Henry Huggins this week and we have enjoyed this so far, it's a cute book! We also did gadget printing in which we focused on using color to create a pattern. Here's what princess created...

I hope you had a great week, hope you enjoyed reading about ours.

I always thought that the females should be prettier too! Of course, I know why it is the way it is.
Princess has such beautiful, shiny hair. You may tell her I said so.:)
I look forward to hearing about things that are going on in your life, Paige.
I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.
