Our week is over! YAY! The k12 school had this marked as a 4 day weekend, and the boys planned to go to gramma's so we kept that in the plan. They are finishing laundry and packing right now. We already did our phonics, math and language arts, so they can play their "educational" games for the rest of "school time" (until 2)
My little guy is going nuts and my daughter isn't feeling too hot, plus she has a doc appt anyway... We'll probably bring some school stuff to do in the waiting room for the appt, but otherwise not do much today.
So far, my hubby and oldest are in New York for a business meeting for the day and the other kids are trying to accomplish some schoolwork and I am trying to keep my focus on but am having some major difficulties doing it. This day is going by so slowly too. gah! :)
We need a kick in the pants this week!
Today is our first day of formal education for the week..only we haven't started yet. Lol
But..we have done a lot of other things this week and been kind of busy. Plus this morning we were discussing homing pigeons and war tactics over breakfast! Haha
Unfortunately today my oldest is playing catch up.....Daddy took them out yesterday afternoon and she didn't get to finish. He wanted me to cancel class altogether yesterday, but it wasn't going to happen. They had an art class this morning and skating this afternoon. My youngest actually was able to write a word in cursive yesterday during writting class. My oldest got a 100 on a math test I gave. I am very proud of both of them.
In math, we are estimating multiplication and division answers. Ds read a poem about kites in reading and learned about slant rhyming words. We are completing a lapbook about seeds today and taking test on it.
I'm exhausted. I think I'm going to give the kid off tomorrow and Saturday. Partly because I'm tired and I realized he needs extra help on division and I'm waiting for a new Kumon workbook to come in the mail. All is well! I love the flexibility and not having to answer to anyone!
So far so good this week. Science was fun today we researched weather on national geographic sites and talked a lot about the weather. They have a great site to use for kids learning science. We had a huge snowstorm last couple of days so spent some time outside taking pictures for a art project.
