Days 137 - 141
No Spring Break for us! Well, maybe Good Friday. I'm trying to stay with the public school calendar, as much as possible, because Morgan attends public school. Shayla finds it hard to focus when Morgan is home to distract her. Also, I know that I have fulfilled my legal obligation to provide 180 days a year of instruction. :) Besides, we don't start back to school until after Labor Day!
Reading: Innovative Kids Level 4 - Book 8 Swirl and Twirl and Book 9 The Campsite.
Writing: A Reason for Handwriting workbook pages.
Math: Abeka and Addition war card game.
Reading: We curled up on the bed and read Easter books for over an hour. What a cozy way to spend a cold, windy, rainy, and dreary day!
Just the basics. We seemed to be moving slower than molasses on these today.
Unit Study: The Grouchy Ladybug.
Kings Kids: Last weekly meeting till next fall. The kids celebrated with a pizza party!
Science: Read library books about tigers and other big cats.
Phys ed: Moved around like a tiger or large cat. Practiced walking, running, leaping, growling, playing, roaring, hunting, sleeping, and yawning.
Language/Social Skills: We practiced retelling the story.
Art: Completed several paper projects and packet.
Wee Discover Nature Program. This program is designed for 3-5 year olds, but Shayla still learns much about nature and social skills.
Each week they learn about trees, plants, leaves, animals, or other nature themes. Typically, they read stories, go on a nature walk, and make a craft.
Friday: We took the day off of formal learning and just had some family time!
