Weekly Review - First Week

Our first week of school consisted of 4 half-days, three of which contained academics. David was sick for 2 of those days, so he didn't accomplish much academics.

All of us:
  • Reviewed Paul's 1st and 2nd missionary journeys (from last year)
  • Learned a new hymn (The Solid Rock) and a new praise chorus (Mighty is Our God)
  • Family prayer each day
  • Read a section from Acts about the start of Paul's 3rd missionary journey
  • Went to a homeschool park day with about 10 other families
  • Started our new read-aloud: Spiderweb for Two: A Melendy Maze by Elizabeth Enright
David - 13yo/8th grade:
  • Did Math-U-See Pre-Algebra - page 24D
  • Read Cameron Townsend biography Chapters 1-3 and narrated it to me.
  • Did silent reading for 30 minutes (or more) 3 days.
  • Helped coach soccer
  • Was sick two days
Emily - 11yo/6th grade:
  • Worked on multiplication facts
  • Read some of Sarah, Plain and Tall, did comprehension questions and vocabulary for Chapter 1
  • Wrote in literature journal two paragraphs.
  • Silent reading - 30 minutes (or more) each day
James 8yo/3rd/4th grade:
  • Math-U-See Gamma - pages 4D, 4E, 4F
  • Read most of Monster Bugs
  • Wrote in literature journal - one sentence about each day's reading.
  • Silent reading - 15 minutes (or more) each day.
  • Went to soccer practice (scrimmage) once
Suzy - 6yo/1st grade:
  • Math-U-See Alpha - pages 5D, 5E, 5F
  • Alphabet Island - 3 phonics lessons on short vowel words
  • Explode the Code Book 2 - pages 1-3 (consonant blends)
  • Silent reading - 15 minutes each day
  • Wrote in literature journal - one sentence about each day's reading.
  • Went to soccer practice twice
Next week, we will add in the rest of our language arts, art, typing, etc... I think I'll hold off on history and science until the following week. I've got to figure out how my writing schedule will work with the lessons.
