We have had an awesome week with lots of quick and nifty science experiments, math games, and book reading among other things. Next week looks pretty promising, too. Here’s what we’ll be up to:
Language Arts: Grace started reading City of Bones this past week, so she’ll continue with that. She’s really enjoying it, so I suspect she’ll finish before the week is over…if so, she’ll get a start on Glitch. Grace will also be finishing up a grammar unit (mechanics) and starting a unit on word choices. She’ll also be continuing with her how-to writing.
Math: We are slooooowly making our way through some algebra topics, and we’ll keep plodding along with that. We’re still reading I Wish I Knew That Math, and I think we’ll finish up with that this week. We’re having a lot of fun testing out math games that I’m creating, too…next week promises some exciting rounds of “Crazy Halves.”
Science: Grace will finish up her science unit on Earth and Space Science. We’ll also be completing a Middle School Chemistry chapter on changing states of matter.
Social Studies: We’ll be finishing our Ancient India folder and cooking a little Indian food. We had planned to do part of that last week, but the best laid plans and all that. 😉
Field Trips: Class at the Science Center is in store. That’s our only planned outing for the week.
Grace’s Choice: Who knows what she’ll choose??? Last week she went with watching a documentary, practicing guitar, and writing.
A full week, indeed! Have a fabulous week!
