Better late than never, right? Where did the weekend go? I think I spend a little too much time doing some catch-up cleaning on Saturday and working on an Easter dress for Aurora on Sunday. Oh well. Here is a little glimpse into what we did last week.
Most of our school subjects remain status quo. We did finish “truthfulness” in our character quality study and are now working on “alertness”. I am amazed at how thorough characterjournal.com is, especially since it is free.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day we took a little break from regular school work to do some fun things. Caspian and Aurora worked on a color by number picture. Instead of our regular Bible and copywork, I had the kids copy some Bible verses about love onto cut out hearts. They wanted to give them to Grandma and Grandpa:) Then we did a little spelling quiz on some of the words they wrote in the Bible verses. Writing Road to Reading must be doing a great job. The kids actually think about how to spell words and sound it out instead of just guessing. Caspian even spelled the word “tongue”!
As a special Valentine’s Day treat from Grandma (that did not involve candy!) she took all of us to a local Children’s Museum. The kids had a blast and I got some great gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas!
We had a great week of some alternative learning. Now I just need to remember to get our week in review done before the weekend is over:) Have a great week!
