In My Life This Week:
We’re back to cheerleading and basketball now which means an extra night out of the house for practice. During this season I find myself dreaming and thinking in “cheer.” Always a good time. lol This year I’m attempting to teach the cheerleaders a dance routine. It’s proving to be quite interesting. I should probably take some video before they get good at it.
In Our Homeschool This Week:
We’ve started reviewing something new for Bible, Who Am I? from Apologia’s What We Believe series. Like all things Apologia, it is really well done and Mackenzie LOVES it.
This week was our first week Growing With Grammar. It’s going well. It’s very different than First/Advanced Language Lessons. For starters, it’s very independent, there’s very little involvement required from me. That’s kind of nice. She reads the text then completes the practice pages. And there are even tests every seven lessons or so. Mackenzie seems to like it. Probably because it’s not much of a challenge for her. It’s definitely not as in depth as ALL. I probably could’ve put her into level 6.
In social studies we finished up Korea. We’re almost finished with Tales of a Korean Grandmother. Mackenzie is still getting a hold of it and reading on her own. Always a sign of a good book. For her “Choose Your Adventure” project she made a brochure on Korea. You’ve got to love word process programs that make it so easy.
We are now moving on to China. We’ve been waiting
In science, we have moved onto a lesson on blood. And boy was it fun! we got to make a model of blood. Out of candy. Woot!! Check it out…
How cool is that?
My Favorite Thing This Week:
Watching Mackenzie score her teams first basket at her game this week. Not only didn’t she duck when the ball came at her, she took the shot. Progress. Go Mackenzie!!!
