Weekly Report March 4, 2010

Our school work is getting built up again. We are going full-force with everything. And they are doing well with it.

2nd grade

She is doing well with her easy readers especially when they are books that rhyme. Work with phonics is also going well and she is making a lot of progress.

For math, we worked on 1/2 and 1/4, time and continued to review addition and subtraction within 11. After next week, we should be able to move onto 12.

The Antarctica lapbook is a bit much for her so I've only been doing the easy pieces. We've pretty much finished up most of the Ancient Egypt stuff and are now working on projects and listening to stories online.

I am happy with her progress.

4th grade

She wants me to work with her but when I do she is distracted and doesn't focus well. Grr. When I don't work with her she complains. It is going OK.

Doing the grammar exercises out of the Oak Meadow book is keeping her focused on topic better than just doing notebooking pages. She did dictate 4 paragraph for her paper on rabbits. Next week she will start copying this in her own penmanship.

Math is progressing well. We are going to start working in the Challenging Word Problems 4 book and then start working in PM 4a again when we get to the point where we left off. She is also doing daily review work in Rod and Staff math 4. She is getting to the long division parts next week.

I have to say that I love, love, love Oak Meadow science and she is enjoying learning about food webs. But we think that colonial history is dull, dull, dull. Soon we will start working with presidents but I do think that she will enjoy the Revolutionary War period.

Things are good here. She is making a lot of progress but sometimes she just wanders so much.

A good week. How was yours?

Glad to hear you are enjoying the science.

Your 4th grader cracked me up. I think ALL 4th graders go through that hand-holding stage again. It must be the last bump before puberty.

Sounds like you had a good week.
