Massachusetts Final Wrap Up…and We Are DONE!



So what all did we get accomplished this week?  Not much.  We finished up our last three days of math and language arts.    Olivia moved on to the Boxcar Children series.   I started her with book #1, cuz well, I’m just like that.   God help me on the day that I have to get a book out of order.

On Tuesday, we went on a field trip of sorts.  We took the day off and went strawberry picking.  We had a lot of fun!  It was nice just to do stuff that wasn’t “required”.   You can read more about our trip by clicking here.

We also had our last Activity Day for the year.  We wrapped up our 9 month study of Native Americans.   We had a visitor in class, so I asked if anyone would like to share anything they had learned this year…and I was stunned at two of the boys who volunteered!  To read more and see photos, go here.

We finished up our study of Massachusetts by learning about the ladybug (the state bug).  After reading about the little buggers (ha), we went on a ladybug round up in the back yard.  A very unsuccessful round up, I might add.

Books we used:

Face to Face with the Ladybug; by Valerie Tracqui
A Ladybug’s Life; by John Himmelman
The Life Cycle of a Ladybug; by Ruth Thompson
The Grouchy Ladybug; by Eric Carle

We still have a couple more weeks of baseball and ballet left, and one more week of Awana…then I can take a break (she says sarcastically).

Head over to the Weekly Wrap Up to see who else wrapped up this week. 

Pin It!
