A Great Week!

Weekly Wrap-Up

This week was great!  The kids were really cooperative, school wasn't a "chore", we had some fun activities.  It was the best week we've had in a long time. 
We started our school week at the beach! Maybe that's why our week went so well! ;)  One of my favorite things about living in Miami is going to the beach.  This was the first we had been to the beach in a couple of months, because believe it or not the days we would plan to go to the beach would be cold (I'm talking in the 70s - and yes, that is cold to us in South Florida ;))

MJ - 6th Grade
 Mj has been working really hard.  He's learning about the space shuttle and International Space Staton.  We had a lot of fun looking up youtube videos about exercising in space, sleeping in space, eating in space.  Lots of fun learning going on! 
Mj also finished up learning about ancient Rome.  We both loved the Drive Through History videos on ancient Rome.
Mj's been working on measurement in math and adjectives & adverbs in English.
Jadyn - 1st Grade
Jadyn has been writing books.  I love to watch her trying to spell words all on her own and she has been reading a lot more. 
She's been loving her chapter on metric measurement in math.  She loves using a ruler.
In heritage studies she started learning about Jamestown. She thinks it's pretty cool that I've been there.
In science she's learning about the sun, moon, and stars.  One day we got some Oreos out and learned the phases of the moon.  I won mom of the year on that day! ;)

Gabe & Job - Preschool & Totschool
Gabe has been learning about the letter "T".  He loves to sing his "T" song. 
Job has been working on his colors.  He loves sort his cars by color. 
This week we started watching a live Eagle cam.  My kids are addicted.  We leave the Ipad on the counter and they check on the momma eagle throughout the day.  They've gotten to see both the mom and dad at least once a day.  We are anxiously waiting for the 2 eggs to hatch! 

 On Friday to celebrate the first day of spring, we bought some flowers and planted some seeds. We talked about what seeds and plants need to grow.  It was a messy and fun activity to do together!


That was our week!  Check out other homeschool families at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
