Week in Review: Sept. 3, 2012

Bug uses money manipulatives to practice place value in Saxon 5/4 Math

Doodles prepares for her daily timed drill in Saxon Math 7/6. One thing I LOVE about Saxon is the daily timed fact drills. My kiddos KNOW their basic math facts!

Doodles all "comfy" while reading a book from Sonlight Core F

Bug is reading this book as a go-along with his Further Up & Further In Unit Study

Bug wrote a letter for a language lessons assignment, and then...

he mailed Nana & Papa. :)

Doodles' first math test of the year: 100!!!

Doodles' animal report as part of Sonlight Core F (this week she learned about Australia)

Doodles uses the iPad to look at pictures of dingoes

Bug uses a dictionary (what? they still make those? LOL) to define vocabulary words from The Magician's Nephew as part of his Further Up & Further In Unit Study

Bug reads about the layers of the atmosphere at this site as a part of Further Up & Further In

Bug's sketch of a scene from The Magician's Nephew

We use the dictionary at our house lol. I love that he wrote a letter and mailed it. My oldest will be participating in a letter swap with friends from another state this year. So great to see the kids reading books. Great week mom!

What a fabulous week - I love the juxtaposition of old school (dictionary) and new school (iPad). Awesome!
