Weekly Wrap Up–The North Dakota Edition


Busy busy busy!!  Yes, really…I’m sure you can’t relate at all, right?

Early in the week be headed to the woods to gather walnuts and acorns for the animals at the Virginia Wildlife Center

Midweek was a flurry of doctor appointments, job interviews and playing catch up.

On Thursday we had our first Activity Day of the year.   I’m teaching on famous women in history and this month we focused on Helen Keller.

Friday we hit the pumpkin patch with my brother and brought home WAY too many pumpkins!  But, for $25 for all you can fit in a wagon, it was still a great deal!


In between all of that we actually managed to get some education in!

History/Geography:   North Dakota was our state of the week.  We also read about blizzards as North Dakota can get some extreme winter weather.

Books we used:

History of North Dakota; by Elwyn B. Robinson
North Dakota; by Darlene R. Stille
North Dakota; by Robin L. Silverman
North Dakota; by Dennis Brindell Fradin and Judith Bloom Fradin
Blizzard; by Jim Murphy
The Blizzard; by Betty Ren Wright
City of Snow, The Great Blizzard of 1888; by Linda Oatman High

Science:  I’m not going to lie to you here…we never got around to it this week.

Spelling:   Yep, ditto.

Language Lessons:  Ditto, again.

Latin:   We did work on Latin and now know our number 1-10.

Math:  More 4 digit division for Olivia.   Lindsey learned to identify the hundreds column.

Ballet/tap:  Both girls are working on their performance awards pieces.  In addition, Nutcracker practices have started too.

Piano:  Olivia memorized “Oh When The Saints” this week.

To my knowledge, Kris will not be hosting a Weekly Wrap Up this week due to a tragic loss in her close circle of friends.  Please keep both Kris and Christina’s  families in your prayers this week.
