Little Hands to Heaven: Week Off
Grace got a much lighter week which didn't bother her for the days she told me, "I don't feel good, Mommy." By Thursday she was ready to be back at it, but was still a bit crabby, so we just did a few lighter things. The girls all love playing on my Kindle Fire and I don't blame them!
printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler. I've had these printed for a while, but I finally got around to laminating them so Grace could use them easily.
Nature Blocks (a set of building blocks from Lake Shore Learning). She was enthralled with these! You can click on the picture to see my full review of these really nice building toys.
Grace is feeling much better and will be back to our normal schedule next week!
Little Hearts for His Glory: Unit 24
Beth had a great start to the week, but ended up catching her baby sister's cold! We continued with school as usual because she didn't have as much discomfort as Grace, but she didn't mind one bit.
She also started word problems for the first time this week! She has made so much progress and I just love that we can set her own pace because of homeschooling.
Our history lessons focused on the early settlement of America. Her poem introduced the concepts of North, South, East, and West. She kept asking which way was north wherever we went and then would tell me the other directions based on that. She also learned the location of the first 13 colonies. She is learning so much this year!
Bigger Hearts for His Glory: Unit 26
Our field trip last Saturday to the Bennett Place to see a reenactment of camp life for Civil War soldiers was a great kickoff for our history this week. An added bonus was that my dad was part of the reenactment! This was the first one he has participated in and it's great that the girls were able to see him and even wear their old fashioned dresses made by their great-great-grandmother for me when I was a little girl.

Even though we don't do a lot of science during the school-year outside of her class, we did take time to review a neat unit study for the Review Crew! Click the picture to learn about this fun Astronomy Unit from A Journey Through Learning that my girl couldn't get enough of!
To end on a really fun note, I have a question: How many of you have pets who enjoy joining in on the learning? Meet Zoe, our sweet kitty who loves Beth and can typically be found sitting right by her during lesson time!
