Weekly Report

We had a good week.  We have really geared up and I can't believe that we are five weeks into the year and our new curriculum.

Third Grade

This week she read American Paint Horses by Kim O'Brien.  She did a lot of work with sight words and phonics worksheets.  She continues to work on verbs.  We started a lapbook on the water cycle and learned about the oxygen cycle.  In math she is working on the 2's table and 14, 8, 6.

Fifth Grade

She read the book:

In grammar she worked on verbs and writing paragraphs correctly.  She was to copy a paragraph and change certain words to plural.  We had to work on the plurals and then the spacing and positioning of words and sentences within a paragraph.  This is the final product:

I am so happy with this third try.  She is really coming a long way.   We need to work on penmanship but she had a terrible pencil phobia in the early years and is only now writing without crying.

History was all about Mesopotamia and in math she is working on fractions.

Overall, it was a good but not picture worthy week.

Love all the erasing in the final product. Looks like she worked very hard. Kudos to her!

It does look like she worked hard. A very good week even without pictures is still a very good week.
