We finished up our Spring Unit this week. Two weeks ago we put some seeds in a water bottle to watch them sprout. We left it under a lamp in our school room and made sure the paper towel stayed wet.
Lydia worked on Number recognition. For some reason she is struggling on this concept. And the boys continued their Teaching Textbooks.
Our reading this week involved many stories around Spring. We read fun stories like Mouse's First Spring, and character stories like Strawberry Shortcake and Blue's Clues. We also read Feathers for Lunch. I will post that separately because of the amount of pics.
We are finishing a day early so we can kind of rest and I can run errands tomorrow. The kids will do some review of Math tomorrow.
Next week we are going to start learning more about Rainforests. We are going to do the whole Habitat series from Hands of a Child. Since the kids have been attending the Rainforest class at the local Zoo, I thought this would be a good one to start with because next month will be their Year End Wrap-up. I hoping alittle extra at home will help it sink in for them. We are going to learn about Poland in Geography. Keep counting along in Math. Lydia will continue phonics and letter sounds. Brayden and Joey will start lesson 3 in All About Spelling. I'm not sure what Story Art we will be doing yet. We might do one of our Edible book Fest projects since we missed that this week. That will be fun for the kids. We have a tour of an area Water Treatment plant next week. As well as dental cleanings for all 4 kids and World Travelers Club. Going to be a busy week:)
