Here are our plans for the upcoming week:
Language Arts: Grace has finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird, but we still have a few activities to complete, so we’ll work on completing those. She’ll also begin reading Crossed, the second book in the Matched trilogy.
Math: Grace completed her decimal review unit this week. Now we’re on to the exciting world of algebra. Algebra is one of my very favorites, so I’m excited. 😀 I think Grace would way rather be playing with algebra than dividing decimals, too. 😉 We’ll also continue reading I Wish I Knew That Math.
Science: Another thing Grace finished this week? Her physical science unit in Spectrum Science. She has started a unit on life science, so she’ll keep working on that next week. We’ll be forging ahead with Middle School Chemistry, too, with a look at heat, temperature, conduction, and evaporation.
Social Studies: Grace is still working on creating “artifacts” for her “museum,” but she should have that finished up in the early part of the week. After that, we’ll be moving on to ancient India. We’ll be starting with another folder…always great for a thorough introduction to a topic. 🙂
Field Trips: We had an unexpected trip to the Literacy Council last week. Grace was an awesome helper in sorting out books for their Book Nook. We don’t have any scheduled field trips for this week, but we are keeping our eyes on the forecast. If it really is 70 degrees on Wednesday, we’ll probably head out for some park exploring and geocaching. There is also a used book store we want to check out. I’m not sure if that counts as a field trip, but we’re going anyway. 🙂
Grace’s Choice: Who knows what Grace will pick? Last week she made play dough, wrote a story, worked on her novel, solved puzzles, and watched a documentary.
We hope you have a fabulous week! It looks like ours is going to be another great one. 🙂
