This week was mulitple digit multiplication. The mere sight of those problems freaked her out. But she picked it up pretty quick.
She did some diagramming of sentences with compound adverbs. That made her feel like a genius. LOL
We were still talking about flying machines. Of course we haven't finished the week but I'd imagine the end is the same as the beginning. LOL
We are on to the Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark. Loving it! We're reading The Lewis and Clark Expedition and it's really good. As if a Sonlight book wouldn't be. We've also added in a lapbook about the expedition. It was half off when I bought it so I was very happy. Mackenzie's loving it and it's complimenting our reading nicely.
Our read aloud and her reader are on more of a Native American theme. We're reading Paddle-to-Sea and Om-kas-toe. She must be loving Om-kas-toe because she keeps asking to read ahead. Paddle-to-Sea is an excellent book for slipping in some extra geography. We've been mapping Paddle's trip. Last we read, he was in Detroit. Woot! Go Wings!! (Can you tell I'm from the Detroit area? LOL)
Which reminds me, I always forget about our geography lessons. Along with Sonlight's mapping assignments, we're using The Complete Book of Maps & Geography. She really loves this book. And she's pretty much able to work through it on her own. It's giving her a lot of great exposure on the different kind of maps, how to read them, and the different geographical areas. She's learning about the Pacific states this week.
That's about all we've gotten in. Today's Friday and we have our Friday reading assignments to do but we haven't done the rest since Tuesday or Wednesday. We'll be playing a little catch-up before field hockey tomorrow, I think. We're definately going to finish the work from our core, although I may just reschedule math and LA. We have Busch Garden's plans for next Friday, can't get behind in the core. LOL
Here's some pictures of what she did while she wasn't doing school. LOL And one from Easter, since I haven't blogged about it yet.
Hope you all had a great week!! Be sure to check out what everyone else is up to over at Weird, Unsocialized, Homeschoolers.
