Weekly Review: September 24-28
Don't forget to check out the giveaway this week from Make, Take, and Teach! It's a great one!
Little Hands to Heaven: Finishing Unit 5
Since Grace is settling back in to a more calm routine (translation: She's not pitching as many fits as she was two weeks ago every time I have to tell her, "No!") She happily listened as I read her Bible stories. Then she read them again to Piglet. These are such precious moments, I am so grateful I get to spend them with her!
She continues to enjoy her Rod and Staff books, About 3. I'm continually shocked at how well she holds her pencil and crayons, traces lines, and understands relationships between objects. This portion of her day is something she loves because she feels so grown up...just like her big sisters!
And we of course had some letter review fun! She remembered all of her sounds and finger-play reminders...Yay! Her current favorite letter is X. She LOVES the letter X!
Little Hearts for His Glory: Unit 8
My Beth continues to amaze me and show me just how much she absorbed by sitting in on her older sister's lessons. She is so well behaved and focused during our lesson time. She eagerly begins each day and stays so well focused. She also lets me know when she needs a break, but never complains when the break ends. I pray this wonderful attitude lasts for all of her education! (Notice the puppy in the corner? Each day this week she had a special friend join her for lesson time!)
Bigger Hearts for His Glory: Unit 7
Our week got a little hectic, so we missed out on some of our science, but I'm planning to make it up this week. We have a weekly class she attends where she learns science, but she loves it so much! So at least for this year we continue to study science.
This was a good week! It's nice to finish out the week and feel like everything went as it was supposed to. Our weeks aren't always this way, but the longer we homeschool, the more fun we have. It's nice to feel so solidly settled in our homeschooling this year!
