I decided to combine a bit of a Brave Writer Faltering Ownership unit with something that I’ve had planned in order to simplify a bit. The unit is called a Mini Report, but instead of doing it about a Natural … Continue reading
We have been super busy and we have two more busy weeks ahead (this week and next week). I have decided to have them do independent work today and just do school tomorrow through Friday and Monday through Wednesday of … Continue reading
This post is going to be a combination of things, so bear with me! Gosh. I feel like everything is working out so so well. Ethan’s behavior has already improved tremendously because he’s able to be outside and be as … Continue reading
This coming week we won’t be doing school Monday because we will be in town most of the day, and Tuesday we will be in town in the morning so we will do just the basics.
Morning time will consist of:
Bible study Genesis chapters 5-6 and mom/daughter devotional.
Artist study: Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists: Pablo Picasso
For geography we will be studying the continent of Africa.
We will spend 5-20 minutes on each.
For spelling we will do All About Spelling Level 2, Step 1: Review. This reviews what was taught in Level 1, which we did not do. This step is very necessary to move forward. We will not use letter tiles like the lessons state because that would just drive her crazy! We’ll do everything in a composition notebook.
For reading she will read The Devil’s Arithmetic chapters 1-3, do vocabulary, and answer questions. I love these units! I have so many more coming up!
I will also have her read something of her choosing for independent reading time (3 chapters will take her like 15 minutes… she loves to read so she’ll need more).
For writing we will do Week 2 of Writing with Ease Level 4. The excerpts to narrate and dictations are from A Little History of the World by EH Gombrich.
Math will be Math U See Delta, lesson 1 A-F and Test (we are moving through this fast because I went backwards to fill in some gaps). Tuesday she will do A & B, Wednesday C & D, Thursday E & F, and Friday will be the test.
Grammar will be Easy Grammar 6 and Daily Grams 6. I haven’t received these yet so I don’t know what it covers. We’ll just go in order.
Art will be creating art like Picasso.
Science will be Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy Lesson 3: Mercury. We will receive her notebooking journal from Rainbow Resource on Monday. We will study lesson 3 for 2 weeks since we only have 3 days this coming week.
History will be Story of the World chapter 2: “Egyptians Lived on the Nile River.”
