Our Homeschool Week
Has another week gone by already? I don't feel like I've gotten a week's worth of stuff done! Maybe it's all the Christmas prep I'm trying to get done.
We read about the amazing mosaics of the Byzantine Empire, and finished the box of mosaics that we started earlier in the year.
Jack's was appropriate, because we were recently reading about a scary sea serpent in our Pirates book.
If you missed the review, click here. Really a neat resource.
The ever popular pop beads were requested again this week. I need to rotate in some of the lesser asked for items, because I think she forgets about them.
The pop beads were also used as a decoration for our felt tree.
Still plugging away at our lovely grammar program. This week we learned reasons to start a new paragraph.
In our current art program, Drawing Unto Him, we learned about shading. In one exercise, we practiced several different ways to shade (dots, cross hatch, blending, etc).
On another day, we worked on getting to know our pencils a little bit more, and tried out light, normal, and high pressure lines & squiggles.
This was our last week of co op, boo hoo! The boys made pastel Christmas trees in art. We'll miss getting together with our friends every week!
Only one more week of school for Luke, Hannah, Sam, and Brianna. Which means only one more regular week of school for us, too. We'll continue to do fun things, but we'll skip the "boring stuff."
This week we hit the year 610 and study the beginnings of Islam. In science, we'll be hitting germs, and it just so happens that I have a Magic School Bus science kit all about germs, so we'll get that out and see what we can discover.
