Weekly Report-Week 10

It's been a rough week for me health wise, but we did manage to get some school done. Except for today, which was kinda a wash-sigh...

Here's a rundown of what we did accomplish...

Language Arts: Princess began reading an abridged version of Black Beauty. So far she's doing well and enjoying the book. We began reading The Little Duke together. It took awhile for princess to get into the book, but the last two days she's been asking for more and more. We didn't complete a full week of Writing with Ease and we did no Dictation Day by Day.

Math: We wrapped up the unit on fractions and began working on clocks. Princess is doing well as usual.

Science: We continued our study of the planets with Neptune. It turns out that Neptune made it around the corner of the wall. Princess did go alittle overboard with the storms that were on Neptune, but really this has been such a fun project!History: We studied Clovis and the Franks and added them to our timeline. We also discussed the Islamic invasion. I had no idea that Spain was part of the Islamic empire, learn something new everyday!

Other: Didn't make it to any of the extras this week.

Education of Me: I didn't read anything this week, my mind was elsewhere :).

Hope you had a great week, you can read other Weekly Wrap-up here.

For some reason, Clovis fascinated me when we studied him. My kids still remember him, too, so my enthusiasm must have made an impact.

I like the planets! It looks like a project my son would love for his bedroom.

I like that you include "education of me" in your week in review. I am always trying to work in some nonfiction reading or improving my skills in some area. I may have to consider adding that to my week in review. I love the planets!

Neptune was fun for my kids too. We love the magic school bus stories and lessons. Remember to do what you are able and then just love on your little one for the rest of the time. Get well.

Oh, I hope you feel better soon. The bugs are going round and round.

The planets look wonderful! Spain has all kinds of amazing mosques and stunning Moorish art/design. I'd love to see them first hand :)

Black Beauty is a good book. I read it last year before my oldest did. She really enjoyed it. The Little Duke- not so much. But just yesterday she decided to start reading Robin Hood all by herself. Can't complain about that! I hope that you are feeling better and get recovered for next week.
