This week has sped by for us. Nothing much has changed. We have still not moved into our new home and our homeschool materials are still packed and I still commute 2 hours each day taking Michael to college. Luckily we still have the library and the computer available.
We played at the park a few times this week and took an up-close tour of a military tank. There were lots of doors and latches to open. The smallest one, I could barely open because the thick metal was so heavy. I am certain the soldiers who operate tanks have to be very strong.
Michael had a busy week at college. And we had great news about his World Civilizations class.
Mattie and Mason have continued their math facts. They know them much better than the last time we worked on them. Of course working on Dreambox Learning this summer has helped enormously. They spend 30 minutes on Dreambox each day as part of their math work.
We finished our read-aloud by Max Elliot Anderson and started a new book titled Emma’s River by Alison Hart. In addition, Michael is reading Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief to Mattie and Mason and they are loving it!
The children’s reading is improving by leaps and bounds. It is so fun to see!
I love homeschooling! It’s going to be a great year!
This has been our weekly wrap-up.
