.....And we keep chugging along.
Joey had a fairly good week this week. He struggled with some of his calendar activities, and did not handle his essay questions well. But we are still working on it. We are just going to keep trying, and keep the mentality of the Little Train....I know he can...I know he can...I know he can. He really only had two real emotional breakdowns this week. I did link them both to incidents involving both tree nuts and peanuts. So he was told he could not have peanuts or peanut butter now. We are going to have him avoid it for a few weeks and see what happens. If he reacts again, we know to avoid those foods.
He was building a Monet painting in Minecraft to go with his Traveling through History with Dr. Who class.
Brayden did his best flying under the radar this week. He also had a good time at bowling. He let me snap his picture a couple times...lol
He is getting ready to watch his Presidents mini-series on Amazon. He is watching the Ultimate Guide to the Presidents mini-series from the History Channel. He is currently using Standard Deviants for History and Science. He is enjoying the short lessons and the fact he can watch and not need to read all his lessons (watch for our upcoming review).
Lydia did pretty good this week. We have been struggling finding a groove for her. I think we may have found something. She still whines about school....I pointed her way to the door.....lol.
This week, she decided against cooking projects. But she decided to do a couple art projects and then learn about frogs. We are working on typing up basic reports on subjects. This week, she tackled an animal report on frogs. I printed a list of questions for her to answer. She decided to get fancy and copy/paste pictures into her report too. We are working on sentence structure as she is doing this. She is back into life science full swing now...lol.
We worked more on the artist Paul Klees this week using lines.
Horseriding .. of course.
She started the Story of the World History class on Homeschool with Minecraft. She had so much fun. She did 4 weeks worth of lessons this week. Very proud of her, she was able to do this all independently!!!
She also worked on making stories with story blocks.
She kept getting out her Goldie Blox games.
We learned about Johnny Appleseed more this week. We concentrated on the parts of the apple and made apple butter.
The apple & plant study made her want to dissect a seed. We talked about the parts of the seed and planted some of the apple seeds we got out of the apples we cut up.
She had to inspect the seeds under the microscope.
It was a smooth week until Thursday when I had a ladder fall on my head. Ugh....ended up in the ER the next day because I was having issues. Dr. said it was a concussion and take it easy. Go figure.
Hope everyone had a great week!!
