weekly highlights

What a fun week we had. I have been able to keep up with everything that's written in the lesson plans. Shocking, I know!!

I pulled out the Reading Rods-sight words edition for Sassy. She got a kick out of doing a few of the cards. I totally forgot I even bought them. She didn't even complain when I gave her a little quiz. I find that if I give them workbook pages instead of my own, they don't complain. So, thank God, that in the reading rod workbook it has a page with two columns of 15 blank lines for spelling practice. So I gave her 15 words to write and then I gave her the flashcards with the correct spelling to check her own work. She loved it. That girl of mine sure does keep me on my toes. :)

I have had to work with Little man with his McGuffey readers, just to make sure he really does it. This week we are gonna start with some dictionary skills. Some of these words I don't even understand. But he needs to improve on his ABC order.

They had a fun day at MAFA on Wednesday. I was even able to shop for a winter coat while they were there. Usually I stick around and chat with my girls, but everyone was going in different directions.

I love the fact that they are getting art and drama every week. They get to choose their classes after Christmas and Little man told me that he wants to do drama. They are doing "Wizard of Oz" for the year end production. I hope he gets a part and does it well. He's nervous about performing in front of people. Sassy wants to take cooking and art. She loves art.

We had a short week again. It was my birthday on Friday, and I didn't want to teach. I swear, one of these weeks we'll do school all five days. :) But that's ok, we kinda like having a chill out day.

Sounds like a great week! And I think one of the best things about homeschooling is that we can have a holiday on our birthdays!!

But it's great to not have to do school all five days! Have a great thanksgiving!

If Bubba does do wizard of Oz, you'll have to let me know. C & C love that movie and would definitely want to see him in it!!
