It's been a while since we have posted what's in the boxes. Thought I would do it for this week. I actually sat down and concentrated on our lesson plans a bit, and even found a workbox schedule from Julie at the Creatin' Classical Chaos blog. If you use workboxes and trying to get organized...check this out. It's a great blog!!! The kids requested new workbox tags, so I made Strawberry Shortcake for Caty, Pokemon for the boys and Lydia wanted Cats. I'll put the pictures of Lydia's up later in the week.
This is a few of the things we will be working on.
Lydia has Horse Camp all week in the morning. She'll have a few things to work on in the afternoons so she doesn't fall behind.
Bible-Jesus Ministry (This is evening time activity.)
Handwriting-Proper letter formation (the boys will start using tracers to control the size and shape)
Math-(Boys) Adding totals and determining if they have enough for pretend purchases (girls) Coin Recognition
Language Arts-(Boys) Review of parts of speech from Summer Bridge Book (Girls) Language Lessons for little Ones.
Science-Finish our lapbook on Butterflies from Homeschool Share.
History-Story of the World - Nomads (cave painting and life)
Upper Elementary Workboxes:
Brayden and Joey have new Pokemon Tags. The top drawer of their boxes are now supply drawers for all the older kids. Caty only has 6 drawers, so she has a little supply box.
The same for the first drawers and then:
Drawer #6 -- Drawing book
Here's Caty's Tot School:
Drawer #1--Everyone is starting a daily journal. They can draw, write, put in stickers, etc. A page a day during the week.
Drawer #2--Color word match from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Drawer #3--Another Erica Creation. Size sorting game
Drawer #4--Tracing book...We love the Kumon Activity Books.
Drawer #5--Sorting Bears while I read to her.
Drawer# 6--Melissa and Doug Tanagrams puzzles.
Everyone have a great week!!!
