Happy Friday! It's time for our Weekly Wrap-up with Kris over at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
Our week was relatively easy thanks to our modified Christmas schedule. It's working well, even though it's not what we usually do. I'm hoping that next year will work out better so we can take the month off, for Jesus, like we normally do. I doubt it though because I'm pretty certain we'll be moving sometime next fall and that we require addtional days off. (Hubby's retiring from the military and we're outta here. LOL)
We are taking a break from our Grapevine Studies til after the holidays. Mackenzie has been continuing on with her regular Bible reading, scheduled by Sonlight, and we've been doing some Christmas centered activities.
I think our favorite this week was the new Veggie Tales movie, The Joy of Giving. The best Veggie Tales movie EVER! We loved it! It's about the history of Saint Nicolas and it's fabulous. We laughed and laughed and learned a few things.
She finished her x3s and aced her test. Now she's prepping for her x6s by working on skip counting by 6. With a little fraction work thrown in.
We dropped our regular SS curriculum in favor of some more Christmas-oriented lapbooks. This week she made a lapbook based on the novel Felicity's Surprise. We got it here. Cheap!
It was perfect for our needs becauses that exactly the time period we're studying. And she has the Felicity doll so she was particularly excited.
Nothing too exciting here. We're working hard on linking verbs and things called predicate nominatives. Working hard too because FLL has been covering that topic for a while now. LOL
A new class on the home ec front called "Get rid of all the junk hiding around the house because we want to try and sell the place in the spring/summer." 'Nuf said except, not Mackenzie's favorite subject. We did her room yesterday. LOL
I did allow her a small taste of next week's life skills lesson. She seemed to enjoy this lesson more.
