This week, the kids played mini-golf and went swimming with their brother and went bowling with daddy. Math and Japanese were accomplished daily. Writing is still the struggle it has been all year, but I added a new type of assignment that was terrific. Grammar, science, history,art and engineering somehow were completed. Reading and literature are the easy subjects. I delegated less this week, but felt the strain more and seriously questioned how this can work, but it is important to us all so it will work because it has too.
Here some are pictures of our work this week including the new writing.
This writing assignment pretty well summarizes what CC wanted to do this week. It was hard to get her motivated to do anything else.
Friends and dodge ball are CC's favorite things about her weekly enrichment school.
She also kept a good science notebook.
LB did some intentional writing this week. She decided what she wanted to do, dictated it to me then drew a picture of herself doing it. She spent an hour or more working towards her goal. I really like this assignment and plan to try to put it in the daily schedule.
In addition to normal math this week in which CC rocked division and was rescued in exponents by BB, she learned about surface area and volume with some building. LB followed the directions on the cards to make letters and a dog from the blocks.
