Weekly Report 12/1/08-12/5/08

It looks like we will be moving soon, so we couldn't really take off all of December for Christmas studies as I had planned. So we are doing a hybrid of normal and Christmas studies. Here's what our week looked like...

Language Arts: The switch back to ETC has been a successful one and I'm glad we did it. Also this week, princess began reading a Level 2 book, which is a step up from what we have been doing. She's doing well and I'm happy with the progress she's making in reading.
Math: We completed the unit of weight, next week review!
Science: We spent the week with reptiles, not princess's favorite animals, but we still had fun. Here's another look at her habitat diorama which is turning out to have a very diverse animal population!
History/Geography: We are working on a unit on Christmas symbols along with Christmas Around the World. It's going well and princess is enjoying the projects. Here's a look our pomador balls. Princess just kept making them!
Other: We are also reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, I love this book! We also sponge painted with shapes to make objects and read half of Hans Christian Andersons "The Pine Tree"

It was a great week and I'm looking forward to the next! Hope you guys enjoyed your week too!

I love your pomanders. We just bought a nice big bag of cloves, so we might just join you. I love the coniverous forest. It is so perfect for a Christmas scene too.

Looks like it was a fun week - It's been a while since we've done pomanders. We may have to give it a try next week.
I love the look of your new website, but I did notice that some of the sample links are not working.
I see you are having trouble with Homer's Iliad - I've never read it, myself. S just breezed through Rosemary Sutcliffe's Black Ships Before Troy and The Adventures of Odysseus and loved them even after her dad read The Trojan War to her.
