Week Three

While KISD started their first week of school, We are on week three! We had tests in handwriting, spelling, and math. Yep, we’ve got lot of work ahead of us, but it’ll be fun.

Oh check out what the kids did Sunday.

I can’t believe Austin will be 6 on Friday!  Where has time gone?!

Week two

Well, we finished our week on a high note. There was a promised spelling test, & everybody made 100’s – Yay!

So I went shopping last week to Walmart (rare trip – we don’t like Walmart very much), & I found great deals for Annie for some new dresses!

I took Saturday to make this:

Cute, huh. The pattern was 99c & the material was .375c /yard. Wow!!!!  Also, it was super easy to make & modest.

Once I finished Annie’s dress, I attacked the school desk. Needed to spice up the room, and I had this paper already .

It’s just scrapbook paper applied with homemade Mod Podge (thank you, Pinterest).

Oh, so Monday I gave them free time after lunch, and what do they choose to do? Read out of their Bible story books! 🙂

So yesterday, after we had a free breakfast from Chick-fil-la, they wrote letters to their Grandmommy. It teaches them that yes, we still write letters (not just email) & be appreciative of people (she fixed Austin’s dog & let them watch movies she’d DVR’d).

Today their big project is writing lines of the alphabet. I’m trying to get them neater & neater. Then it’s math drills – Yay!

Love to you all,
Rachel

Days 2&3

Sooooo … yesterday we started our day with a scavenger hunt at the Harker heights community park with some of our co-op friends, ate lunch there, then did some much needed grocery shopping. After we got home, we had school and they were treated to a rental of ’The Lorax’. For now, Tuesday will be a shorter school day because we have Quest Club with a few other local homeschool families. And … next Tuesday it will be at our house for a lesson on sewing & then how to make solar ovens (pics to follow). Today we focused on spelling & writing, and math. I’m looking for a math site where i can get maybe a page of quick problems for a “math minute” review. i think that challenge will help Austin. Oh and … Annie lost tooth #8. She’s excited for the tooth fairy visit. After a good Bible study, it’s now their bedtime for an early school day tomorrow. Love to you all, Rachel
