Skills and Topics: October 29 through November 2

Standard

Now that we’ve finally gotten back on track with regular school weeks, I have a better idea of what we’ll accomplished in the week ahead. 🙂  Here’s the (vague, as usual) plan for next week:

  • Language Arts:  Grace is reading the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan.  She’s reading the second book now.  In writing, we’re still working on personal narratives…look for some samples next week. 🙂  We’ll be starting a reading unit on making inferences.  As always, grammar and spelling will be part of our week.
  • Math:  We’ll continue to work with Perfectly Perilous Math.  I’m sad to say we’re not too far from finished with this book. 😦  We’ll also be working with integers.
  • Science:  Grace is currently working on a unit about light and sound.  We’re about halfway though, so we’ll still be on this topic for two or three weeks.
  • Social Studies:  We’ve just finished our Ancient Egypt History Pockets.  We’ll be doing to a Hands on History unit about Egypt before moving on to ancient China.
  • Spanish:  Grace is steadily working her way through the MindSnacks app for Spanish to learn tons of vocabulary.
  • Grace’s Choice:  Well, we’ll just have to wait to see what she chooses. 😉  This week she chose writing, making homemade chocolate syrup, and some extra science activities.
  • Community Good:  Grace and I have the opportunity to help the Literacy Council with preparing their newsletter for mailing this week. 🙂

That should keep us good and busy!  I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
