Day 33

A series of unfortunate events kept us away from homeschool gym class today. Everyone got a treat at a local restaurant to make up for the disappointment. Thankfully, there’s another class next week! I’m loving this weekly program and am so thankful that it’s available to us.

N (age 12):

Math: N had an assessment today. The results were abysmal, but expected considering the post-vacation brain fog. We’ll review on Monday.

Bible: N and C reviewed their memory verses (Galatians 4:4-5, Isaiah 9:7, Micah 5:2, Daniel 9:25, Isaiah 7:14, and Malachi 3:1). They continued learning about Jesus’ parables and their meanings.

Reading: N read some of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. She read a few chapters of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I’m glad to see she’s enjoying the book and catching the humor.

Spelling: N had an assessment.

Writing: N and C practiced writing a sentimental letter with no exaggeration or flowery language.

History: N continued reading The Enlightenment.

Spanish: N completed several more lessons and a worksheet in Spanish.

Music: N practiced her scales and practiced sight reading with our musical flashcards.

C (age 10):

Math: C had an assessment. She only got a few wrong, so we reviewed them when she was done with her assessment.

Reading: C read some more of Nzingha: Warrior Queen of Matamba.

Spelling: C had an assessment and got quite a few words wrong that she never got wrong before. I had her write them each five times.

Bible: Combined class with N.

Writing: Combined class with N.

Spanish: C completed several more lessons and a worksheet in Spanish.

Music: C practiced her ukulele.

S (age 7):

Math: S had an assessment.

Reading: S continued her unit of All About Reading. She read a story about a girl with a to-do list. She did quite well, but still struggles with her emotions when reading.

Writing: S copied the days of the week on a worksheet that I made from the Writing Wizard website.

Bible: S and H practiced their memory verses (Proverbs 11:3, Titus 2:7, John 3:16).

H (age 5):

Math: H filled out the next date in her calendar and colored the date block according to the pattern. She practiced counting to 15. She said the days of the week. Her lesson was on sorting by color and then creating a real graph. She sorted her counting bears by color, then graphed them and interpreted the graph.

Reading: H reviewed A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, and K. She continued to practice letter flashcards for these letters. She was introduced to the letter L.

Writing: H copied A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, and L on a worksheet that I made from the Writing Wizard website.

Bible: Combined class with S.

I was an education major in college, but I hated teaching. And then I started homeschooling. Good days, bad days, I love them all! It's a great adventure with my favorite people in the whole world.
