Here’s what we’re going to be up to this week…tons of fun stuff ahead!
Language Arts: Grace has started reading The Book Thief…I’m thinking that one will take us through the end of the week. She’s also working on a new writing unit about descriptive writing (one of her favorites). Always, always, always with the grammar, too. 🙂
Math: We have finally worked our way through our algebra topics, so we’re moving on to a review of coordinate graphing and graphs of functions. Grace has also started reading Math Doesn’t Suck. So far, she’s enjoying it, and it seems to be a nice little review of some basic concepts.
Social Studies: We still have quite a few activities with our History Pockets for Ancient Greece, so we’ll be working with those all week.
Science: We’ll be starting with chapter 4 of Middle School Chemistry…all about atoms and bonding. Grace will also be tackling the last chapter in Spectrum Science (History and Nature of Science).
Field Trips: We don’t have any official field trips planned, but we do have some actual work in a field we’re planning. Grace and I have started a little garden with some unusual methods. We’ve got some of our seeds started, and, today, we laid out the first layer of our “soil”…which is actually cardboard. This could be a pretty interesting project. 😀
Grace’s Choice: Who can say what she’ll choose? Last week she planted seeds, watched a documentary, a Pi Day celebration, and playing Silly Sentences.
