Week In Review ~ Unit 7

We had a short week last week since I had a couple appointments, so we are still finishing up Unit 7 in Bigger but I managed to remember to take a couple shots of the children hard at work. Industriousness is the theme this week and they are really taking it to heart.

To aid my oldest in completing all his subjects I came up with a very simple schedule using the time chart cards I made here. I tweaked it a bit and made it more portable since he does his work where ever he is most comfortable. He was having a problem remembering to actually check for subjects that are not done everyday. I will be adding that post soon along with some more reviews!!!

This pregnancy is harder on me than any of my others so I am letting that dictate our speed but we are generally doing about 4 1/2 hours for Bigger and 6 for CTC plus. My tot received a package of Busy Bags last week as part of a swap I participated in and we are having a blast with them. I will post all of those later also. Hope your school days are now in full swing and enjoyable.

I really need to get better and covering my 16 year old’s work but he is usually reading in some hidey hole or does his projects when I am otherwise occupied and I miss it.

Tot School

I have not really began any kind of structured learning with D as she is only 31 months old. It is still mainly playing for her but she does ask to do certain things and so I will have things out for her but she usually asks for something I have out of sight (which isn’t much since we have no real storage here).  This past week it was mostly things from our swap, her favorite being the sticky foam letters and shapes.

This is a hand drawn do a dot with those decorative stones (they are flat on one side) she loved it!







Intense art/drawing with erasable pencils








Practicing color sorting






Matching bead colors








Magnetic alphabet book, she is a little young for this books real purpose which is spelling but she has fun with all the magnetic letter tiles.







One to one correspondence






Fav of the week!




Apparently my computer was in trouble and needed help.

And here is a - just because she’s starting to enjoy having her picture taken since she used to hide from the camera – shot.

Oh, I can't believe noone has commented! Your pictures & post is wonderful. I just found you through Pinterest of all places. I had repinned your picture of the History Notebook recently to read later and finally got to it. I see this post is a couple years old, but I have to ask, what History notebook were you using. I love the Breastplate pages. If you don't mind, please let me know. Nice to meet you Mandy. I look forward to looking at more of your blog. :)

Opps, Nevermind, I think I see it's HOD right? Great. I'll look into it. Not that I need another curriculum, but we are doing Christian History and I just can't get enough Bible... oh, wait, I'm suppose to be teaching my daughter, not me. Oh well, hope she joins me. jk
