What's in the box?

So what's up for next week? I think it will be another week of making good progress. And here is what is in the box:

Box 1--Reading: Second grade: easy readers, words that start with cl or ch. She will do 2 main lessons where she will write a sentence using words from her word "families" lists. She will also have a main lesson for science about ants.

Fourth grade: an Akiko book

Box 2--Math: Second grade: our main lesson is counting by 2's, we will also work in Singapore on numbers within 40 and be working in Rod and Staff on 11, 9 and 2.

Fourth grade: her review work from Rod and Staff will include the 7's table. We are also working on word problems from old Singapore workbooks.

Box 3--Lapbooks: Second grade: the horse lapbook will be face markings, senses, ear communication and sleep. The Egypt lapbook with be papyrus, body parts, amulet and occupations.

Fourth grade: rabbit communication and possibly the life cycle.

Box 4--Read Alouds: We should finish the Jolly Robin stories, start reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond and hopefully pick up The Vile Village. At bedtime we are reading various Ancient Egypt tales and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Fourth Grade only:

Box 5--Spelling: List J-2, phonogram oi, prepositions, and practicing writing the words. She will also be learning to type beyond home row.

Box 6--Grammar: Helping verbs, tenses, and mood.

Box 7--Science and History: 2 days each. History will be about colonists and include mapwork while science will be about instruments and will include some experiments and our microscope.

I think it will be a good week. We are starting to step up the work a little bit more. The girls are both doing more writing on their own. So what is in your boxes for next week?
