Weekly Wrap-Up | Week 5 | Almost Break Time!


Only 1 week left and then we will take a little break for a teacher planning session and a little camping trip hopefully.  We love having a 6 week on / 1 week off schedule when possible.  


Basketball season officially began this week.  We had some tough lessons to learn this week as Stephen made the team and Sarah did not.  However, the girls only have a varsity team and Sarah has only just turned 13 so she still has plenty of time left to secure her spot.  It is still hard to not make the team but life lessons help us grow. 

And hey she gets to have school at Krispy Kreme while we wait so not too bad, right?  :)

Here is a sneak peak into Teaching Textbooks Geometry and Pre-Algebra.  I cannot recommend them enough.  The lessons are taught so simply and not over complicated and automatically graded for me - yes!  Tip:  I have the kids write their daily scores down on their checklist in case of a computer crash and loss of scores which we have dealt with in the past.  



More science experiment fun this week as Sarah was learning about the different variables of experiments.  How much salt does it take to make an egg float?  What motor works best for a cardboard boat?





This was our last week in the USA so each child took a final state quiz.  Next week, we're off to Mexico!

 

My first attempt at freezer meals was a success - tiring but successful and I now have 10 meals in the freezer for a busy basketball season!



We finished up the the first half of Kingdom Tales this week and will begin reading a missionary book next week.  

Here is the done pile of books so far this year.
