What We’ll Be Up To…


Oh, so many plans!  Let’s see if we can get all of this accomplished in the week ahead:

Language Arts:  We are all finished with To Kill a Mockingbird, so we’ll be back to some of our regular language arts fun.  Grace will be working on a grammar mechanics unit and a ” how”-to writing unit.  Even though we were still working on To Kill a Mockingbird activities, Grace got a healthy start on Crossed last week, so she’ll be finishing that up early in the week.  Then we’ll move on to City of Bones, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series.  Fun!

Math:  Algebra, particularly solving two-step equations, is not coming easily, so we’ll be working on that pretty hard this week.  If all goes well with that, we’ll move on to some more algebra concepts.  Of course, we’ll also be playing some games, solving some puzzles, and reading I Wish I Knew That Math.

Social Studies:  Due to an unplanned trip out into the world, we didn’t spend quite as much time on Social Studies last week as I would have liked.  We got one very short intro assignment about ancient India accomplished, and that’s all we did for ancient India.  This week, however, will be all full of the ancient India!  Grace will be completing a history folder this week and we’ll be whipping up some Indian food.

Science:  Grace finished up her unit on Life Science, so we’ll be working on Earth and Space Science this week.  We’ll also continue with our Middle School Chemistry activities.

Field Trips:  We did make it out to a local park this week, but it looks like the weather won’t be friendly enough for that again next week.  Other than a trip to the library, we’ll probably do the homebody thing this week. 😉

Grace’s Choice:  Who can say what she’ll pick?  Last week she focused most of her attention on writing.

Have a fabulous week!
