Weekly Report-Last One of the Year

I have to say that I almost cried several time today, it's silly I know, but this year has been so much fun. I don't want it to end, but alas all good things must come to and end. Plus there's always next year! Anyways here's a look at our final week of the 2008-2009 school year...
Language Arts: Princess finished by reading the Titanic, which she enjoyed, but she was upset that the boat sank and mad at the people for not being prepared with enough lifeboats for everyone. One of my favorite movies is Titanic, so I was having flashbacks the entire book, LOL. We also did a week of Level 1 from Writing with Ease just to make sure the she would be ready for Level 2 next year. I think that she will do just fine and I'm really looking forward to starting this in the fall. Thank you to my dear friend who was kind enough to ship this book halfway around the world to me!

Math: We wrapped up multiplication by 4 and then we made a skip counting book. For princess skip counting has been the most effective way to memorize her multiplication facts. So we will use the book the practice the facts over the summer. Here's a look at some of the pages from the book...
History: We read about the fall of Rome and the last Roman Emperor. Then we put together our notebook and pulled down the timeline so we could make a booklet out of that. That's when I got a bit misty. We've had such a great year and it was neat to see all our memories wrapped up in a neat little notebooks. Here's what they looked like...
I just have to thank Susan Wise Bauer for writing Well-Trained Mind and Story of the World and Sonlight for having such great books for me to choose from! The two of you have made this year great! I'm hoping that next year will be the same, since we are continuing along the same path.

Hope you all had a great year to and I'm very excited to get started again next August!
