For those of you counting, we finished up our formal homeschooling last week. What exactly does that mean? It means I have fulfilled my annual obligations for learning to the state.
Don't tell her it's supposed to be summer break. Ok? It's easy to get away with it now, because Morgan is still in school, we'll see what happens when she finishes for the summer. :)
Phys ed: Miss Kathie gave homework from ballet class last week. We are to practice positions 1-5, plies, and releves.
I will probably be feeling those plies and releves later. :)
Handwriting: 1 Peter 5:8
We did most of our lessons outside on a blanket under the maple tree. It's amazing what a change in scenery can do for your attitude. I wasn't the only one that felt this way, Shayla remarked several times yesterday that it was the best day ever.
Field Trip: Attended Morgan's last band concert.
*Note to self: We sat on the plastic bleachers rather than the metal folding chairs. It was an experiment. Shayla used to be fine at these concerts when we sat on the bleachers. First of all, it's more toward the back, but I reason that the music seems to conduct more through the metal folding chairs. Thereby, you can feel the music go into your whole body. I am a highly sensitive person and notice these things, too, but not to the degree that Shayla does. Regardless if it's proven scientific fact, it worked, Shayla actually had fun, although, yes, she still plugged her ears the whole time! UGH!
(We also did 1 hour of phys ed, read aloud - both Shayla and I, one lesson of reading/phonics/spelling and math)
Reading: Shayla finished Fun With Pets the first book in the Abeka readers.
Social Studies/Reading/Arts: I read Dance is Fun aloud. It told the different time periods and the history behind each dance. It was fun to incorporate countries and culture into her new interest of dancing.
