Anyone else screaming TGIF on Friday this week? I mean, we didn’t even do anything super eventful this week but I’m just so tired (notice this post is 2 days late)! We decided to stay parked here at home and take it easy as much as possible and work on getting back to normal around here (except, will it really get back to normal? With the holidays death spiral that started yesterday with Halloween, I’m not so sure). Here’s a quick recap of what we accomplished this week (week 10) in our homeschool.
This Week In Our Homeschool (Week 10 Review)
I decided to start incorporating daily journal time with the girls in the mornings. Nothing makes me happier than when I read back on stories they wrote when they were younger, so I knew that we would all cherish these journals in the future. I’ve decided that I’m going to even get myself one so I can join in on the memory making. I’m going to miss when they’re older and no longer want to draw pictures to go along with their stories like these:
Also, Madison finally mastered all of her addition problems using www.xtramath.com! She has been working so hard on this, so we were both pretty excited and proud! Of course we had to go out for some celebratory ice cream later that night.
Some other things we learned this week in our Homeschool:
- More practice with sequence in stories
- addition and subtraction with regrouping
- Imperative sentences, Identifying and using nouns, and plural nouns
- cursive letters “z” and “q” (3rd grade)
- The state of Maryland
- How computers have changed
- How animation works
(I took a break with my preschooler. I was just too tired and she really was too.)
Then there was Friday Funday! Since it was the day before Halloween we decided to do our own little party as a family here at home to celebrate. We ate Halloween decorated cupcakes, made some masks made out of milk jugs (I’ll share more about that project soon so stay tuned!), and carved our pumpkin. There’s nothing better than putting the books away and having some FUN!
Happy (belated) Halloween to those who celebrate! Hope you’re not going too crazy with your sugar-overloaded littles 😉
