Weekly Wrap-up ~ An Abbreviated Post


We are done! We are done with school and ready to take our Spring Break.

The Past Week in our Regular Life

It was a very quiet week at home filled with laundry, packing, cleaning, and the norm.

The Schooling Basics

When I say schooling basics, I mean we did the basics! Our biggest focus was on math and reading this week, while continuing with science.

Math - In Math U See Gamma we finished Lesson 28 multiplying 3-digit numbers by 3-digit numbers. The kids have definitely mastered multiplication. Check! In Mastering 5th Grade Math - Fractions, we learned how to rename fractions. I have been dreading teaching fractions but they have picked it up easily. We think Jason is a fabulous teacher! And in our CTC Math program the kids completed the first set of lessons in 4th grade division. They have one more set of lessons in 4th grade and then I think we will move onto 5th grade division. Again, the program teaches it so well and they are whizzing through it!

Reading - We finished Papa and the Leprechaun King and are now reading The Raft. Eli and Brynne continue to read for 30 minutes to an hour each day.

Science - In Science4Us we completed the Plants module in Life Science.

The Schooling Fun Stuff

Other than going to our Lewis and Clark class at the library, we didn't do any extras this week. Our main focus was just to do the things we knew we needed to do and be done with it!

The Kitchen

We had ham, baked potatoes and corn on Monday night and chicken fettucine with broccoli on Tuesday night. Tonight we are eating dinner at my parents'.

The Days Ahead

Florida! Our days will consist of sleeping in, reading, playing with our friends, going to the beach, going to the playground, visiting The Mess Hall science museum, watching the Blue Angels practice and then going to the National Naval Aviation Museum, and touring Fort Pickens. We cannot wait to share Pensacola with our friends!
