Homeschooling: August 15-19, 2011

We had another great week. We added a new book to our Bible study: Starting Strong. For our read-aloud time, we finished reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond and started Johnny Tremain. For independent reading, Doodles finished The Matchlock Gun and Bug is reading My Father's Dragon: The Bestselling Children Story We continued our reading in all of the other previously mentioned Sonlight books. Doodles studied the excretory system in science, while Bug continued learning about plants. Baby Girl learned about the letter "G." She listened as I read some books, and she did several hands-on activities. We are all having a blast and learning so much!
