Joey finished up his math unit on estimating. Math is definitely not his strong point and I am not sure how to keep going with him. He is in 6th grade and no where near ready to handle pre-algebra even. In fact, he forgets steps in simple addition problems. I know it frustrates him also.
We started reading about what happened in the Ohio Country during the Revolutionary War.
He worked hard on separating subjects and predicates in his grammar. Joey finished his George Washington Book. We both found out some great facts about this hero for Adventure Club.
In Science he finished up his unit on plants and spores. We had a failed science experiment, so we re-started our experiment this morning. Turns out the furnace definitely keeps our house too dry in the winter for mold. So we had to create a green house effect using gallon bags this morning. He dissected a seed to discover the seed coat. And then he is going to start growing them in the little "greenhouse" now.
He put the beans in water to soak overnight to make them more easy to dissect.
Even through whining, crying and tantrums....he got his work done.
Brayden sat with me to do his schoolwork everyday. He finished up learning about bees today. I am trying to get the Bee movie cartoon for us to watch with him. We used to have it, but I can't find it. He finished reading Bad Kitty. He "restarted" multiplication. It's refresher from when he regressed in some skills last fall. Hopefully we'll get back to where he needs to be pretty quick.
Caty had a good week. We worked on Hooked on Phonics and these Letter finds from Living Life Intentionally. She loves using the Bingo markers.
She did not like painting with pencil erasers to do dot art. It was rather comical...have you noticed this weeks favorite shirt...lol.Speech Therapy Ideas.
Her artist study this week was Joseph Cornell...watch for the upcoming post. He is famous for collage boxes. She decided to do a collage box for Justin Bieber. Go figure.
I hope everyone had a wonderful week!!! Linking up with other homeschool families at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
