Up until Friday we were having a pretty good school week. It feels weird to go on about our week, but life did happen here this week and I am going to share anyway because typing it all out is a distraction from the ache in my heart, and maybe it will be for you too.
I intended to pick up our Bible curriculum again this week, but we have been having so much fun singing worship songs and reading the Bible that we just haven't picked it back up yet. Maybe next week!
When my husband called to tell me about Connecticut, I quickly turned on the news and then quickly turned it off as it was too enormously sad and I hadn't realized the magnitude before I turned on the news. Noodle asked me, "Mommy, why did somebody shoot the kids?" Poor baby. We stopped right there and prayed for the little children, their mommies and daddies and their brothers and sisters. Then we just hugged each other for a long while. I am sorry he even knows a little about what evil happens in this world.
This week Noodle continued with Teaching Textbook 3 lessons, but we also did flash card practice for money counting and multiplication. He finished his Thousands Chart and now he has started filling in a Multiplication Table, up to 9's.
I know I have said it before, but I really like Rod and Staff Spelling. I admit though, that I recently saw Spelling Workout at a book store, and I am intrigued. I don't know what is wrong with the camera but many of my photos are coming out blurry and I don't know how to fix it.
We finished the wonderful little book, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. It was funny and sweet, and Noodle and I really enjoyed it. The Progeny Press Literature Guide was fabulous too!
The only history done this week was a few Veritas Press online lessons. Next week we will begin our 6 week unit on the Civil War.
Noodle wrapped up the Saturn unit with a Venn diagram on Jupiter and Saturn.
One more week of lessons from Song School Latin was completed. I love this sweet curriculum, but I am looking forward to moving on to Prima Latina by the end of January.
We read from Christmas Around the World. Also, I found a Charlie Brown Countdown to Christmas that I must have bought on clearance last year, so Noodle has been having fun with that.
We put up our tree last weekend too, so we are finally in the Christmas Spirit!
Lastly, we made a trip to Half Price Books this week and I found these two gems in brand new condition for only $5 each after my discount! Score! The DK book even has the CD!
Linking up this week with Homegrown Learners and Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers
