This was our 7th week of the school year, and that means next week is our first break of the year! I have lots of things scheduled for the week…gardening, lesson plans and preparing for a yardsale. Doesn’t sound like much of a “break” does it?
Language Arts: Olivia finished up her book study of The Bronze Bow. Lindsey finished her book study of Wilbur and Orville Wright.
Science: We finished up our third chapter in our Physics & Chemistry book. The highlight of the week was baking up a batch of sugar cookies and making the Periodic Table of Elements. Yum!
Math: Both girls had their third math test of the year. I’m so happy to see the new confidence level in both girls after 7 weeks of using Horizons. They both scored really well on the tests which really made them both quite proud.
History: We finished up our Wild West Unit Study. Although we all enjoyed this unit, I’m glad to be moving on to our next 6 weeks on the Industrial Revolution.
Friday we were gone all day on a field trip with friends. I’ll be writing a blog post with lots of photos next week, but for now at least you’ll know where we went, grins.
Nutcracker practices start this weekend. We’re now at ballet 6 days a week until December 14.
