I could have written a review without pictures, but I prefer to read those with pictures so I just waited. Looking back I wish I had gone ahead and written them, but I just couldn't get the inspiration. This last week was our spring break, so I'll start with that update!
They had a wonderful time visiting their cousins and making lots and lots of memories! Fascinating update, right? Tee hee...
The weeks prior to this were filled with academics and fun, so they were ready for the break! I'm not going to detail each unit this time, just show a few highlights with the random few pictures I was able to take with my other old camera with no flash. Boy, am I glad to have my lens back!
Grace is very close to finishing up our reading lessons. Four more and we'll be done! Look forward to seeing an excited, "I'm finished!" photo in next week's review.
This picture just cracks me up! A few days before the previous picture (Yes, this is her favorite shirt!) Rose wanted to help her read the story. All was well until Grace mispronounced a word and Rose corrected her. Oh my...obviously the lesson fell apart rather quickly at this point and I stepped in to finish!
Over the last few weeks we have settled into a slightly different routine unintentionally. My girls have started doing more of the same content area at the same time. For instance, they end up all completing literature/reading at the same time. I rather enjoyed this. It was cozy having all of us in the same room reading.
Do you see Beth's mouth? All About Spelling really focuses on phonics in reverse which is why I love it so much. Beth frequently sounds out her spelling as she ponders the rules she has learned. She has just begun to apply the rules she is learning to her everyday writing which is relieving. I know it takes time for this to happen, but finally seeing it happen is very relieving.
You'll see a guest in our homeschool over the next few weeks as well! Do you remember Diego? He remains cancer-free (Yay!!!!!) and is able to attend school regularly now. He has a year-round schedule so he's going to be hanging out with us during his spring break which lasts a total of three weeks. Be on the look out for this little cutie pie!
So there you have it...almost a month in review!
