Bear this week:
Science- Continued on with Module 12. We discussed how the body uses energy and how it burns the macro nutrients carbs, fats and proteins. For his science fair project he is almost finished with his display board and has completed the rough draft of his research report.
Math- He started Key to Decimals, doing about 4-5 pages a day. He didn't do any Teaching Textbooks this week but will return to it on Monday along with Key to Decimals.
English- He is 3/4 the way through Second Mrs. Giaconda. We haven't done writing the last couple of weeks because I am counting his research report for the science project as his writing right now. He's continued with the Wordly Wise vocabulary this week too and that's about it for English.
History- He's almost done with Mystery of History Vol 2 and then we will be taking a break from History until we start the new year in August.
Math - Noodle is still working on Saxon Math 1 and I think we'll be finished around July and he'll be ready to start Abeka in August. We are still practicing skip counting and drilling flash cards.
Reading- Moving right along with OPGTR and the Bob Books. We finished reading The Flying Flea, Callie and Me. It was a really cute book. Noodle has made tremendous progress with being sitting still and being more attentive. He can tell you all about this book!
Handwriting- This week for handwriting I had him write his address and I have counted all the writing he has done for his science project as handwriting.
Science- He started his display board.
The basics of his project are the three types of volcanoes and how/why they erupt. He is going to build a paper mache volcano with my guidance and instruction as well. We've got a mural going in the classroom that we may hang at the science fair, but we'll see.
As far as our recitations he has our phone number and address down pat as well as the days of the weeks and two poems Time to Rise and Singing Time. He almost has the months down, but he still stumbles or skips one now and then. He stumbles with the Pledge a little too. He started working on memorizing The Caterpillar this week.
Hopefully next week we'll have some beginning pictures of the paper mache volcano and our volcano lapbook
