This has been one of the coldest weeks I can remember! Our nightly temperatures have dropped into the single digits, with days being only in the teens. But the wind, oh the wind! Nothing is worse that cold hard wind! Despite the cold, Olivia and I still managed to get our walks in 3 out of 4 days. Tuesday morning it was only 8 and the wind was screeching and I just didn’t have the urge to get frostbite, call me a wimp if you will. Thursday we walked in the newly fallen snow. While we were out, the water bottle that we carry froze, seriously.
We have had a really productive math week. Olivia is charging ahead in fractions. This week she learned how to subtract mixed numbers and improper fractions, and also how to change mixed numbers into improper fractions. Lindsey started working on multiplication. Additionally Lindsey is making great progress with her Math Mammoth Money work text.
Language arts has been slow and steady. Olivia is learning to diagram sentences and she really enjoys it. She is also finishing up her third book report of the year. Lindsey is focusing mainly on capitalization rules, sentence structure and proper use of words like teach/learn, sit/sat/set, right/write and to/two/too.
Both girls continue to excel in ballet and piano and guitar. Lindsey is completely in love with basketball and actually claims to like it better than ballet! Olivia is almost finished with her Awana book for the year, and Lindsey finished hers up this week.
Thursday we finished up our 100th day of school. There was no celebration or anything grand. I’m curious, where did the whole 100th day broo-ha-ha come from? Do you “celebrate” the 100th day?
Friday was back to co-op, although the day was shortened due to an impending snow storm (that has yet to materialize). Earlier in the week I shared about some of the crafts around our house and the many forms of music that can be heard daily.
That’s about it for our week!
