In Our Homeschool This Week:
This week Mackenzie was on a semi-spring break. What on earth is a semi-spring break? For us it’s dropping our normal studies and working only on review items. It wasn’t a total cake walk because we are reviewing quite a few items at the moment. There was a lot of science, some writing, literature, and history. Some things we are liking more than others. There is one item we are ready to be done with. LOL Soon, real soon.
Here’s some pictures, but no details yet! Sorry.
Kayleigh was working on the letter I this week. This was another one that we have already completed in Raising Rock Stars Preschool so our we focused on All About Reading and continuing on with our first You Can Read unit. We also added in a few things from 1+1+1=1’s Pretty Bugs pack, but we called them insects to go along with I. lol
In All About Reading…
I put random items in a bag and she had to pull them out one at a time and come up with a word, real or silly, that rhymed with the item. She had tons of fun with this and did it about 5 times. “Zecora” helped of course. Her crafted involved coloring an inchworm picture and gluing yarn scarves on the worms. I’m not sure how inchworms and scarves go together but those were the instructions. She loved it. She made Ii out of Wikki Stix again but I didn’t get any pictures.
I am happy to report that she has all four words in this unit down. Not only could she read them during our activities, she was able to find them and read them in some of our books. She is soooo proud!!! Her favorite activity was rolling our education cube, reading the word, and then crossing it off the magna doodle. She loved, loved, loved it. She also did a “sight word search” from YCR. I cut and laminated small word cards and hid them in rice. She was supposed to find them with her tongs, read them, and then place them on the graph. The rice was too distracting. She just wanted to play with the rice. LOL

In Our Life This Week:
Mackenzie has taken to “tormenting” her guinea pig. Bwaaa haaa haaaa!!
Our realtor called and wanted us to come and pick out exterior because the builder wants to start building early, even though we’re not closing until October. We raced out there. And drove by our lot again. Mackenzie wrote our name on the sign and we admired the newly placed flags for the gas line. And the bulldozer parked near by. We are
practically stalking the place. lol
