This week we had school every day but Tuesday and Friday. On Tuesday our babysitter came and we had ECFE. The theme at ECFE was groundhogs. On Friday I had a dentist appointment in the morning and we had a few pastors and their wives over for an Epiphany party that evening. The Lambs were a big help getting ready for the party. Lamb 1 shoveled the sidewalks several times this week all by himself (Lamb 2 was outside with him but didn't help him). The Lambs vacuumed and dusted and did other cleaning. The Lambs vacuumed the whole living room by themselves. They set the tables with napkins and silverware. They served dessert to everyone and without being asked they picked up the dirty dishes from everyone. They were quite good hosts for the party. We are so proud of them. We were glad we finally were able to have the Epiphany party before Lent! The weather wasn't the greatest but we still had 2 couples come. We ate, did an activity-can't really call it a game, and had dessert before they thought they should get on the road before too much snow. It was an enjoyable evening. We were light on school this week while we were getting ready for the party, but this is what we accomplished this week.
Math: Finished lesson 11. Began lesson 12-the concept is teaching adding doubles (0+0, 1+1, 2+2...).
Reading: Read more My Book House stories. Read Harold and the Purple Crayon. We didn't do any FIAR activities with it, just read it. Still memorizing Bed in Summer by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Phonics: Lamb 1 continues to do well in Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading.
Religion: We were working on other subjects this week and we reviewed, but didn't start anything new. We'll have to do better this week! We did read some Arch books.
Latin: Continue to review in Prima Latina.
Music: Continue to learn the names of musical instruments. Listened to Tubby the Tuba CD/book.
We just didn't get to much science or history to talk about here.
Art: Play doh with babysitter, groundhog craft project at ECFE.
Handwriting: Lamb 2 continues on his worksheets from http://www.donnayoung.org/ and he does a little better every day. Lamb 1 continued to review making his numbers correctly. Now if I could just get him to write his numbers correctly on his math paper like he does on his handwriting papers!
We don't have TV so we won't be watching it, but GO COLTS! (My Hoosier roots couldn't resist adding that!)
