Avery went to ECSE and made a snowman picture. He also is getting the hang of going to the bathroom right when he gets home because I still can’t BELIEVE they don’t take three year olds to the bathroom there. I try to have him go right before he leaves as well, but it is still three hours or more.

Avery's snowman. Looks like the idea was to match circle sizes.

Big kids:

  • We finished up Ch. 10 in MIF on weight. Aaron got 100% on the test and Naim missed 5/27. Although 4 of the ones he missed was more of a reading issue. He mixed up a picture of a pencil case and a wallet and then got the corresponding questions wrong. If you reverse them, the answers were all correct. We decided to skip the next chapter on graphing because we did SO much of that in Calvert Math. The next chapter is on numbers to 40, including addition and subtraction.
  • Both did 2pp. in Sylvan and 10 Spelling words. (Aaron did Vocabulary book today.)
  • Aaron did the worksheets for Lesson 1 in HOP
  • Naim did Lesson 7 DVD and reading in HOP.
  • Naim worked on proper sitting and pencil grip, position of paper in ZB. Also did thumb exercises where you sit and lift your butt off the ground with your thumb and fingers. Worked on snapping and touching fingers to thumbs also.
  • Aaron did “d” page in HWT
  • We watched Uranus on BrainPop. My Brainpop subscription is expired. Need to see if I can get a homeschool discount through VH or Coop. We use it all the time.
  • We made a fossil of a dinosaur toy for Magic Schoolbus.
  • Kids did a Kiwi crate activity with oil pastels and watercolor. They are postcard sized so one is going to get sent to Ruoda and another will be used for their art portfolios as name tags.
