What We’ll Be Up To


Well, we have another nutty week ahead of us.  Monday and Friday both have strange scheduling, but I think we’ll still manage to get a lot of stuff accomplished. 🙂  Here’s what we’ll be doing:

Language Arts:  We’re deep into the world of To Kill a Mockingbird this week.  We’ll continue reading and doing accompanying activities.  Most of our Language Arts efforts will be focused on the novel, but we’ll also squish some grammar in there. 😉

Math:  We will be finishing up a section on number theory review (factors, multiples, and primes, oh my!) and starting a section on multiplying and dividing decimals (review).  Now that we’ve finished with all of the problems and labs from Perfectly Perilous Math (*sad sigh*), Grace will begin reading I Wish I Knew That Math.  While this book seems pretty interesting, it doesn’t provide all sorts of nifty problems and labs.  Still, it seems pretty packed with good info.

Science:  In Spectrum Science, Grace will begin a unit on physical science.  We’ll also be completing the first lesson from Middle School Chemistry on water and molecules.  (This site is holy moly fantastic, by the way.)

Social Studies:  It’s another week in Ancient China for us.  (Actually, two or three more weeks.)

Grace’s Choice:  Who can say?  Last week she chose Science Wizardry and puzzle-solving.

We don’t have any field trips planned for the week.  Of course, that doesn’t mean we won’t take one. 😉

Yep, it looks like a pretty tame week ahead.  (Always subject to change.)

We hope you have a fantastic week!

  1. We plan on a pretty tame week too and I have to say that I am looking forward to it! November and December were crazy busy. I am ready for some sanity! 🙂 I hope you had a good New Year’s.
