We had one of those AHHH weeks homeschooling. Ahh, no complaints about math or reading!
Math – Review, review, review! Emily and I reviewed addition facts using flash cards and playing addition games.
Reading – Something clicked this week for Emily and she is getting it and starting to enjoy reading. Ahhh!
Spelling and Writing- We have been using Learning Resources Reading Rods, which I found at a yard sale, to work on short and long vowel sounds this week.
Language – Emily and I are loving the lessons in First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind. It breaks down things into easy to understand lessons, building as you go. She memorized the poem The Caterpillar this week and even set it to music. If I can figure out how to upload the video I will add it.
Art – We used the book I Can Do All Things – A Beginning Book of Drawing and Painting this week to practice drawing straight lines. This was not an ahhh moment for Emily. Who knew that drawing straight lines could cause a 6 year such frustration. She gave her eraser a workout!
Science – We’ve been learning about the human body, germs and nutrition. You can read more about that here.
Kitchen Time - This week Emily made eggs and bacon (the microwave kind) and pudding, with sprinkles or course!
That’s it for our week. For more weekly wrap-ups please visit Kris at Wierd, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
