Weekly Wrap Up

I didn't do a wrap up last week, so I will just list where we are and what we are learning.

We are back on schedule with our chores.

I spent some time de-cluttering this week. I hope we can spend some time cleaning the garage this weekend. Not that I enjoy it, but that it needs it so badly.

As for our unit studies in History-we have been reading "Caddie Woodlawn" the last 2 weeks.
This is an extra book I am trying to squeeze in. The kids have been reading individual books on frontier life. Peyton just finished "Wild Bill Hicock", and Lexi is reading "Little House on The Prairie." They are doing these independently.

We are reading "From Sea to Shining Sea" and need to catch up a bit on that.

For Science we have been studying mammals and reviewing animal classification.

In Writing -Peyton is working on Topic Sentences and Main Ideas of paragraphs.

In Math-
Peyton is working on his final fractions book-Mixed numbers.
Lexi is doing very well so far in her Kumon Division book.
(It has been a very good fit for her.) Much less intense than MUS.

They are both continuing their Queen's Language Lessons each day.
Peyton had his Greek 1 final exam today and scored 96. So he begins book 2 next Monday.

So that puts him with a semester of Latin (Books 1 and 2) and Greek books 1&2,
if he has time he may even complete book 3 this semester.

In extra curricular activities-Lexi almost quizzed out at our JBQ meet last Saturday.
She was so excited. She got a ribbon.
Tomorrow both the kids have BB games.
Peyton had art class this week, and Lexi had Musical Theater and Jazz class.
