Our week went well, we did take Monday off since hubby was home.
Here are some of the highlights of the week.
Tuesday: Continued work on our measurement unit. We worked on measuring and a little bit about the history of standard measurement. We all went outside and measured fifteen of "our feet" vs. fifteen feet on a standard ruler. It was an eye-opener for my kiddos, and me too. Good thing we use a standard measure :). It would be quite difficult to give directions otherwise.
Wednesday: Spent a beautiful day at a local State Park lake. My kids swam and socialized with some fellow homeschool friends. I visited with some homeschool mom friends. It was great fun.
Thursday: More measurement. We also had centers today (my first grader LOVES centers). We pulled out our TOPS science lentil kit - everyone ended up playing with it, so it was able to stay out until Friday.
Friday: Cleaned the house - we are hosting an Around the World Cooking Club and Monday is our first day.
We're excited. Next month, maybe I'll clean the house a little more regularly, so it's not a marathon clean.
We might be switching to WinterPromise Adventures in Sea & Sky. As much as I love putting together our own unit studies, the idea of having a plan is making me VERY happy, and less stressed. I did buy the program guide, I still need to see if I can pick up books at Half-Price books... there were also some available at my local library. On paper it looks like the perfect program for my family.
Next week will still be measurement (with a focus on graphing), but after that, we might be making the big switch.
Be sure to check out what other families did this week.
