Summer School Week 5

Today we started a lite Summer school day. We had family over for a week, so no school was completed. This week we are going to use a lot of Schoolhouse Review items. Here is what I'd like us to get done this week. Not all are review items.


* current review items
** completed review items that we are continuing with
No stars means it's not a review item


*Math Made Easy (Lance)
**Math Essentials (Josh)
**Professor B Math (Ethan)
Mathematical Reasoning 4 (Brent)
Editor and Chief (Annette)
Mind Benders Book 5 (Annette)
*Heroines of the Past Bible Study (Annette & Mom)
*Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Maker (Read aloud)
*Five Paragraph Essay (Annette)
*How to Teach a Paragraph (Brent)
*Time4Writing~High School Paragraph Writing (Josh)
*Apologia~I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Josh and Mom)
Horizons Phonics (Lance)
Phonics Pathways (Ethan)


If I can do the review items at least 4 times a week and the non review items 3 times a week, I'm happy =)


Notice that there is no work for Caleb. He left with his grandparents and will be gone for a whole month. I miss him already.


Right before I hopped on the computer, Annette and I took a walk to our little downtown area and visited our favorite coffee shop. I thought it would be a nice way to start our girly Bible Study using Heroines of the Past. I read the story, we looked up the verses and talked about courage. Later she needs to write down the verse to be memorized on an index card. Once done we played a game of Mancala and looked around. The coffee shop sells many unique item as well as antiques.


Joshua, completed his first Time4Writing assignment. I think I was more excited about it then he. I really am excited about this review, it's such a blessing for us.


I read the first chapter of Mr. Pipes and the British Hymn Maker. The children didn't want me to stop but that chapter was long and I needed a rest. They can't wait for more. When I finished reading we looked online so the children could see how beautiful the pipe organs are.


I hope to get some more school done later after I take a nap and have more energy. These hot days wear me out, even though I'm mostly in the house. 95* isn't too hot but it's enough to make me sweat and tire easy.

Week In Review






Week 1

How about that! Week 1 is done and it has been a great week.


We had a busy week. I didn't get as much one-on-one time as I would've liked too.
As much as I LOVE writing about our homeschool days. I don't have the energy to write everything out today.
When, I write all we have done, I have my planner handy.
